Basingstoke based Bewley Homes is celebrating after landing another internationally-recognised award for demonstrating high health and safety standards.
The top-rated housebuilder has received a RoSPA Silver Health and Safety Award for working hard to ensure its workers and contractors all get home safely to their families at the end of every working day.
Organisations receiving a RoSPA Award are recognised as being world-leaders in health and safety practice. Every year, nearly 2,000 entrants vie to achieve the highest possible accolade in what is the UK’s longest-running H&S industry awards.
Staff from Bewley Homes will be virtually presented with their award during a ceremony in September.
Matt Jenkins, Health and Safety Manager at Bewley Homes, said: “This has been another complete team effort to secure this award. It’s the second time we have entered the awards. Last year we scooped the bronze and this year silver. We will be doing everything we can to further improve in all the areas we can.”
Julia Small, RoSPA’s achievements director, said: “The RoSPA Awards scheme is the longest-running of its kind in the UK, but it receives entries from organisations around the world, making it one of the most sought-after global accolades in health and safety.
“RoSPA wants every employee, wherever they are, to work safe in the knowledge that they will be going home unharmed and healthy at the end of every day. The RoSPA Award winners are vital to help achieve this goal, as by entering they are driving up standards and setting new benchmarks for organisations everywhere. Currently, around seven million people are directly impacted by the RoSPA Awards, but the scheme’s influence is even wider.”
