A small homebuilding company which operates across the Midlands and the North of England has been honoured with a gold-standard health and safety award.
Keepmoat Homes won its third gold honour this year from the prestigious RoSPA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents) Health and Safety Awards. The company has won this award two years previously, in 2008 and in 2010, for its work developing a uniform safety culture across the business.
As well as ensuring health and safety training standards are continuously high, Keepmoat Homes has implemented regular safety audits and site inspections and has even launched a reward scheme for new safety innovations.
Peter Hindley, the managing director of the company, spoke of his pride over the award and said that health and safety is a huge priority in the industry he works in.
The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents commented on Keepmoatâ€™s win, with awards manager David Rawlins saying:
â€œRoSPA firmly believes that organisations that have demonstrated their commitment to continuous improvement in accident and ill health prevention deserve recognition.
â€œKeepmoat Homes has shown that it is committed to striving for such continuous improvement and we are delighted to honour it through the presentation of an award.â€
