Dyer & Butler, an engineering services specialist focused on essential infrastructure including airports, railways and highways, has received a prestigious RoSPA award for demonstrating consistent health and safety excellence in the rail sector.
The Dyer & Butler rail division has received the internationally-recognised RoSPA Gold Medal Award, its ninth consecutive Gold Award, in recognition of its achievements in health and safety management systems including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.
In addition, Dyer & Butler Ltd has received a RoSPA Order of Distinction Award (15 consecutive Golds) and Dyer & Butler Electrical Ltd (5 consecutive Golds) has received a RoSPA Gold Medal Award. Dyer & Butler’s aviation division has received RoSPA Order of Distinction Awards in association with clients, Gatwick Airport Ltd and Heathrow Airport Ltd.
Organisations receiving a RoSPA Award are recognised as being world-leaders in health and safety practice. Every year, nearly two thousand entrants vie to achieve the highest possible accolade in what is the UK’s longest-running health and safety industry awards.
Dyer & Butler Rail Director Chris Darlow commented: “First class health and safety values and practice is a prerequisite for our sector. This award from RoSPA reflects, once again, the effort and commitment of all our people, particularly those teams on our operational sites throughout the UK who are working round the clock in often challenging conditions. Moving forward, our objective is to continue to deliver exceptional health and safety performance on behalf of our people, our clients and all those who come into contact with our organisation.”
Safety, Sustainability & Training Director Steve Broom commented: “The achievement of this year’s RoSPA Awards is a special moment in Dyer & Butler’s health and safety culture. Achieving an Order of Distinction is a firm demonstration of our rail division’s commitment to health and safety and the reinforcement of our values in delivering safely for our people and our clients. Whilst it is right to stop and celebrate our achievements, the hard work to maintain our standards will continue to ensure that everyone is ‘Safe by choice, not by chance’.”
Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of qualifications, awards and events, said: “The RoSPA Awards scheme is the longest-running of its kind in the UK, but it receives entries from organisations around the world, making it one of the most sought-after global accolades in health and safety.
“RoSPA wants every employee, wherever they are, to work safe in the knowledge that they will be going home unharmed and healthy at the end of every day. The RoSPA Award winners are vital to help achieve this goal, as by entering they are driving up standards and setting new benchmarks for organisations everywhere. Currently, around seven million people are directly impacted by the RoSPA Awards, but the scheme’s influence is even wider.”
Headline sponsor of the RoSPA Awards 2020 is NEBOSH – the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health – for the 15th consecutive year. For more information about the RoSPA Awards visit www.rospa.com/awards
