For a third year in a row, the health and safety standards across the Davies Turner Group have led the UK Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) to presenting the company with an internationally-recognised award.
The leading global freight forwarding and logistics group has received a third consecutive RoSPA Gold Award in recognition of the high standards of its safety performance during the period from January 01, 2022, to December 31, 2022. Carl Inman (pictured), group health & safety, insurance and environmental manager, says the RoSPA Gold Award is a highly coveted and respected accolade in what is the UK’s longest-running H&S industry awards.
He adds: “In a very competitive awards scheme, to receive a Gold Award once is an achievement. To score a hat trick, with a Gold Award in each of the last three years, signposts Davies Turner’s ongoing commitment to continually improving the standards of health and safety within the workplace. The latest award, along with our other certifications, adds to Davies Turner’s list of achievements in the field of internationally-recognised standards of quality, health & safety, and environmental management.
“It further demonstrates our commitment to all of the company’s stakeholders, including our clients that are increasingly seeking greater evidence that Davies Turner is fully engaged with environmental, social and compliance issues, as they seek reassurance that they are dealing with a company that fully understands and effectively manages its corporate social responsibilities.”
Alan Williams, director of Davies Turner PLC, who chairs the company’s health and safety meetings, adds: ”A commitment to health and safety, as well as environmental responsibilities, underpins the freight forwarding and logistics activities provided by the company, as well as making sound business sense.”
The latest RoSPA Gold Award adds to the ISO14001:2015 Environmental Management System Certification that is in place at several of the Davies Turner Group’s regional distribution centres across the UK.
