Lovell has received a top award from national safety organisation RoSPA for its superb health and safety performance over the past twelve years.
The RoSPA President’s Award recognises the company’s commitment to ensuring the safety and wellbeing of the public and its workforce at its construction sites and offices across the region.
Lovell’s Eastern region, which works on homes projects across Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and the East Midlands, has now gained twelve consecutive Golds in the RoSPA Health and Safety Awards, the UK’s longest-running industry awards scheme.
Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of qualifications, awards and events, says: “The RoSPA awards are the most highly-respected in the health and safety arena, with almost 2,000 entrants every year, and allow each organisation to prove excellence in the workplace, demonstrating a commitment to the wellbeing of not only employees but all those who interact with it.”
Lovell regional managing director Robert Adams says: “I’m delighted that our dedication to maintaining the highest health and safety standards has again been recognised by this important award from RoSPA. Keeping everyone safe at our sites and offices will always be our priority. The President’s Award underlines this continuing focus as well as the expertise and dedication to safety of our own staff and our subcontractor partners.”
Lovell directly employs over 60 members of staff across Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and the East Midlands as well as providing work for around 220 people through its subcontractor partners. Major schemes include a £30 million homes development at Doncaster Lakeside, south Yorkshire; The Coppice, a £12.3 million development of 47 homes at Chapel-en-le-Frith on the edge of the Derbyshire Peak District and The Spires, a £14.5 million, 73-home scheme at Branston, near Lincoln.
