Double RoSPA win for Palletline

“Palletline has received a double accolade in this year’s RoSPA Workplace Safety and Health Awards.

This year we have not only received Commended in the Transport, Storage & Distribution Industry Sector but Ken Bell, HSEQ Manager, has received the coveted Health & Safety Influencer Award

in recognition of his campaign to drive down workplace accidents and work-related stress by instilling a culture of health and safety awareness among colleagues.

It is the tenth year running the company has received the accolade in recognition of its continued high standards of health and safety practice within the workplace.

The RoSPA Awards scheme is highly prestigious, receiving entries from organisations around the world and recognising achievement in health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.

The Industry Sector Awards provide an opportunity to benchmark a company’s overall performance against other similar organisations. These industry sector awards are competitive and in each sector, there will normally be one overall winner, followed by a “highly commended” and “commended”.

To achieve a Commended award Palletline had to meet an exacting set of criteria. Experts looked at the company’s accident records and the health and safety managements systems in place. Strong leadership and workforce involvement also forms a strong part of the RoSPA award.

Ken Bell commented: “To achieve Commended in these prestigious awards is just fantastic
and I am particularly proud to have received the Health & Safety Influencer Award. However, it is not something I could have achieved on my own. Health and safety is a culture and one which is always at the forefront of our minds and has become an integral part of the work ethic we aim to instil in each and every one of our employees.”

Graham Leitch, Managing Director of Palletline, said: “We are delighted to have been once again recognised in this year’s RoSPA awards. We pride ourselves on creating safe working environments for our employees and members. These latest RoSPA awards are recognition of our ongoing commitment to health and safety and are also testament to Ken’s continued professionalism and dedication to reducing risk and ensuring the safety and wellbeing of each and every one of his colleagues.””
