Henry Boot Construction’s Extra Care Housing project in Yeadon has been successful in the 60th year of the RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2016.

The project achieved the Silver award in the prestigious annual scheme run by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA). The RoSPA Awards is celebrating sixty years of presenting highly-regarded and sought after accolades to businesses and organisations which have shown commitment to accident and ill-health prevention.

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.

Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of awards and events, said: “To win an award at such a highly-regarded event such as the RoSPA Awards is a great achievement for our winners. It recognises their commitment to maintaining an excellent health and safety record and raises the bar for other organisations to aspire to. We offer them our congratulations.”

The award will be officially presented to Henry Boot Construction at a ceremony in September.

“This project specific RoSPA Silver Award for the Yeadon site represents another excellent achievement which highlights the site team’s commitment to achieving the highest standards of health and safety management on site. This commendation for Henry Boot Construction is a testament to the project team which underlines our focus and commitment to delivering the very highest levels of health and safety management in every project we undertake”.
