The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) has awarded McLaren Construction a prestigious award, in recognition of the company’s practices and achievements in helping its colleagues and subcontractors get home safely at the end of each working day.

For the second year running, McLaren has achieved a Gold award in the internationally renowned RoSPA Health and Safety Awards, the longest-running industry awards scheme in the UK.

The awards receive entries from organisations around the world. They recognise achievement in health and safety management systems, and practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.

Alan Blanchett, McLaren Group SHEQ Director, said: “We are incredibly proud to have won the Gold award for a second year running. Our Work Safe, Home Safe campaign within McLaren is really gaining momentum and helping us to continually improve our health and safety performance. It’s great that this has been recognised by RoSPA.”

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 majority of awards are non-competitive and mark achievement at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels. Gold medals, president’s awards, orders of distinction and the Patron’s Award are presented to organisations sustaining the high standards of the gold level over consecutive years.

Competitive awards go to the best entries in 24 industry sectors, including construction, healthcare, transport and logistics, engineering, manufacturing and education.

There are specialist awards for health at work, environmental management and fleet safety, and excellence trophies for the best international, new entry, workforce involvement and organisation operating or based in Scotland. RoSPA’s top accolade is the Sir George Earle Trophy.
