The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents has awarded the Highways business at Amey two prestigious awards recognising the work undertaken to improve environmental and health and safety practices.
RoSPA recognised the achievements of Amey in the following categories:
• Commended in the Construction Engineering Industry Sector Award
• Winner of the International Dilmun Environmental Award
James Haluch, Managing Director for Amey’s Highways Business, said: “I’m delighted that our teams in Highways have been recognised for the work we do to help keep our people safe as well as the steps we’ve taken to limit our environmental impact. Last year we launched our health and safety behavioural framework, Zero Code, which outlines the behaviours all our people need to adopt to keep themselves and others safe from harm. I’m proud to see these behaviours being embedded and the number of injuries our people are reporting reducing.
“The safety of our people will always be our number one priority. We’ll continue to build on this fantastic achievement to reach our goal of Target Zero, ensuring the safety of our workforce and our communities at all times.”
Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of qualifications, awards and events, said: “The RoSPA Awards have become the key fixture in the health and safety calendar with new sponsors and new awards this year including the Leisure Safety Awards, the Safe@Work Safe@Home Award and the Inspiration Awards. Highly-respected, with almost 2,000 entrants every year, RoSPA award winners benefit from the wide-ranging rewards of improved sector reputation.”
The RoSPA Awards scheme, which receives entries from organisations around the world, recognises achievement in health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.
These awards follow the success of Amey’s Rail business and Amey Consulting, receiving the President’s Award (recognising 10 consecutive years of golds award status), and Amey’s Utilities Business Unit, whom celebrated receiving a Gold Medal for the first time (recognising 6 consecutive years of golds) last month.
