We are delighted to announce the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) has given Lovell in East Anglia their Achievement Award 2020, for the 14th consecutive year. The award is given to companies that can demonstrate an ongoing commitment to improving occupational health and safety.

Holly Baker, Lovell’s health and safety advisor in East Anglia, said: “The health and wellbeing of our staff is at the core of everything we do so I’m delighted RoSPA has again recognised our important work in this field. Lovell has a very proactive approach to occupational health, constantly evaluating and evolving site safety to identify areas for improvement before they become an issue.”

The RoSPA Achievement Awards are graded, starting at Merit, increasing through Bronze, Silver and Gold. The Gold medal is given for five consecutive Gold Awards, the President’s Award given for 10 to 14 consecutive Gold Awards with this being the fourth President’s Award for Lovell.

“There are another two levels to aim for,” added Holly. “The Order of Distinction (15 to 24 consecutive Gold Awards) and the Patron’s Award (25 plus consecutive Gold Awards). We fully intend to gain these honours.”

Entrants for the awards had to answer 10 key performance questions, covering workforce engagement, selection and monitoring of contractors, health and safety communication, monitoring and measurement. For the first time, the 2020 entrants also had to include their organisation’s COVID-19 response.
