Winvic Receives RoSPA President’s Award following Ten Consecutive Gold Awards for Health and Safety Achievements

Posted on November 22, 2021 in Awards & Accreditations

Winvic Construction Ltd, is celebrating after landing an internationally-recognised award for demonstrating high health and safety standards ten years running.

Winvic has received a RoSPA President’s Award for achieving ten Golds consecutively for working hard to ensure its team get home safely to their families at the end of every working day.

Organisations receiving a RoSPA Award are recognised as being world-leaders in health and safety practice. Every year, nearly 2,000 entrants vie to achieve the highest possible accolade in what is the UK’s longest-running H&S industry awards.

Evidently, Winvic’s health and safety record has been outstanding for a long period of time, but ongoing excellence and even more successful outcomes was the company’s driver at the start of 2020. It started to undertake a vast programme of consultation and learning, from the bottom up, with the aim of effecting transformed behavioural thinking and behind-the-scenes methodology; the ‘Doing It Right’ initiative – a cultural change programme to further improve behavioural safety – was launched in May 2020. 16 months on, over 9,000 safety observations – both positive and negative – have been reported in the ‘Doing It Right’ app and Winvic achieved its target to reduce its Accident Frequency Rate (AFR) by 25 per cent in the first six months. The firm now has its sights set on another 10 per cent reduction.

Ian Goodhead, Winvic’s HSEQ Director, said: “Every person in our 400 plus strong internal workforce and countless other consultants and subcontractors that make up the Winvic team should be extremely proud of themselves and each other for contributing to our safety-first culture. The RoSPA President’s Health and Safety Award is a significant achievement and uplifting recognition of our efforts, but we are by no means satisfied with just ten consecutive years of top honours. We pledge to continue building on the solid platform of our past, to ensure a safe and successful future through our ‘Doing It Right’ initiative, always strengthening our health and safety technical processes, training programmes and vision of ‘one team’ working.”

Julia Small, RoSPA’s achievements director, said: “The RoSPA Awards scheme is the longest-running of its kind in the UK, but it receives entries from organisations across the globe, making it one of the most sought-after achievement awards for health and safety worldwide. RoSPA is very proud of the achievements of its entrants, and with this award we recognise the best of the best, those organisations that have gone the extra mile, raising the bar for the delivery of safety in the workplace. Employees, wherever they may be, should be able to go to work safe in the knowledge that they will return home unharmed and healthy at the end of every day. Our RoSPA Award winners are central to achieving this goal. By entering they are driving up standards and setting new safety benchmarks for organisations across the world. Currently, around 7million people are directly impacted by the RoSPA Awards, but the scheme’s global influence is even wider – with nearly 2000 organisations from 46 countries represented this year. I would also particularly want to thank our main sponsor NEBOSH, the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health – for their continued support for the 16th consecutive year.”
