Lovell has received the President’s Award from national safety charity RoSPA (The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents) for its superb health and safety record over the past 12 years.
The accolade in the RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2016 – celebrating their 60th anniversary this year – recognises Lovell’s achievement of 12 consecutive RoSPA Gold awards. It honours the company’s commitment to maintaining the highest safety standards and rigorous safety management systems at its construction sites and offices across Scotland.
The award was presented to Lovell – which is based at the Glasgow Business Park in Baillieston – in a ceremony at the Hilton Glasgow hotel.
Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of awards and events, says: “To win an award at such a highly-regarded event as the RoSPA Awards, is a great achievement for our winners. It recognises their commitment to maintaining an excellent health and safety record and raises the bar for other organisations to aspire to. We offer them our congratulations.”
Lovell health and safety advisor Calum McKay says: “The presentation of the RoSPA President’s Award underlines Lovell’s continuing commitment to upholding the most stringent health and safety standards across our sites and offices. I’m delighted that the professionalism and hard work of both the company team and our subcontractors have won this important recognition from leading safety charity RoSPA.”
