Two Rivers Housing wins ROSPA Gold for safety practices

Two Rivers Housing has been handed a prestigious award in recognition of its practices and achievements in helping people to get home safely at the end of the working day.

The Gold Medal is awarded by RoSPA to organisations sustaining high Gold standards of health and safety over consecutive years, and Two Rivers has achieved six Golds, leading to its second Gold Medal.

The award was presented at the internationally-renowned RoSPA Health and Safety Awards – the longest-running industry awards scheme in the UK.

Garry King, Chief Executive at Two Rivers Housing, said: “This is the second time we have secured the Gold Medal, which is testament to the great efforts made by all our staff.

“Whether they are developing policies, delivering training or monitoring practices, or they are on the frontline working with our tenants and other partners, they all play their part in making Two Rivers a consistent health and safety champion.”

The RoSPA Awards scheme receives entries from organisations around the world. It recognises achievements in health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.

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.”
