The RoSPA Awards, which have been held by the family safety charity for 59 years, recognise commitment to continuous improvement in accident and ill health prevention at work.
Through the scheme, which is open to businesses and organisations of all types and sizes from across the UK and overseas, judges consider entrants’ overarching occupational health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.
The Gold Medal, which is presented to organisations that have won five consecutive Gold awards, will be presented to Ground Control during a ceremony at ExCeL London on June 16.
Ground Control’s HSQE director Philip Trehern said: "A big thank you to all those who check their machines, report near misses, participate in audits, deliver toolbox talks, prepare risk assessments and work safely each and every day. This commitment and dedication across all business streams was fully reflected in our RoSPA 2015 submission. So to have won our fifth consecutive RoSPA Gold award and the coveted Gold Medal is a terrific recognition. Thank you all once again for helping us build our reputation one safe act at a time."
