NHBC receives ‘gold’ international Health & Safety award

20 April 2018

NHBC has been awarded gold in the esteemed Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Health and Safety awards.

The UK’s leading warranty and insurance provider for new homes has received the award just a year after receiving silver status.

The RoSPA awards scheme, which is the longest-running industry awards scheme in the country, is judged by some of the industry’s most influential experts and trade unions and recognises outstanding achievement in health and safety practices.

Simon Mantle, Group Health and Safety Policy Manager, said: “The RoSPA Health and Safety Awards is the most respected awards scheme in the industry and to be named a gold award winner openly reinforces that the wellbeing of our employees is a top priority.

“A lot of hard work has gone into the entry submission so I’m thrilled that NHBC can now be counted amongst some of the world’s biggest brands as a leader when it comes to health and safety practices. We’re looking forward to the opportunities being a RoSPA gold award winner will open up to us.”

Julia Small, RoSPA’s Head of Qualifications, Awards and Events, added: “The awards allow organisations to prove excellence in the workplace, demonstrating a commitment to the wellbeing of not only employees but all those who interact with it.”

Simon will attend the RoSPA Health and Safety awards ceremony at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole on 5 July, where he will collect the award on behalf of the business.
