Lovell has been presented with the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) President’s Award for maintaining an excellent safety record over the past 11 years.
Lovell’s Eastern region was recognised for achieving 11 consecutive Gold RoSPA awards for safety performance, including its health and safety management systems, at its construction sites and offices in Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and Humberside.
Open to all types of businesses and organisations across the UK, the annual awards scheme is run by safety charity
RoSPA, which is celebrating its centenary this year.
Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of awards and events, says: “The RoSPA Awards are the most prestigious in the world of occupational health and safety, and held in high regard around the world, as winning one demonstrates an organisation’s commitment to maintaining an excellent health and safety record. Achieving the standard required is no mean feat.”
Lovell regional managing director Robert Adams says: “Keeping our workers and the public safety is of the utmost importance to Lovell. I am delighted that we have sustained such a high level of safety performance and that the commitment, hard work and professionalism of our own team and our supply chain partners have once again been recognised by national charity RoSPA.”
Lovell is working on a number of high-profile housing schemes in Yorkshire, including two contracts together worth £2.9 million with Clarion Housing Group which will create 24 affordable rented homes in east Leeds, at sites in Seacroft and near Halton. Lovell is also building 33 affordable homes for Leeds Federated Housing Association at Newhall Gate and Walk, Belle Isle, south Leeds.
