With increasing government legislation, Collins has taken measures to improve its Health and Safety in recent months, extending our H&S team with two new full time advisers. Their role is to assist our Head of Health and Safety in ensuring compliance and improving safety standards across all Collins sites.
This improvement is highlighted by us winning a RoSPA Silver Award. Coinciding with our 60th year, this year also marks the 60th anniversary of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents awards.
Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of awards and events, said: “To win an award at such a highly-regarded event as the RoSPA Awards is a great achievement for our winners.
It recognises their commitment to maintaining an excellent health and safety record and raises the bar for other organisations to aspire to. We offer them our congratulations”. In addition to our ROSPA award, Collins are also delighted to have been rated 4 Stars by the Considerate Constructors Scheme. The award reflects performance in the preceding calendar year and is calculated by taking the average score across all visits conducted in that year, translating into a ‘star rating’.
Both these accolades are a testament to the commitment Collins employees, across all levels, put into maintaining and improving all aspects of Health and Safety including welfare, environmental impact, compliance and awareness.
