McLaughlin & Harvey has been awarded a RoSPA President's Award Health and Safety Award for working hard to ensure our employees and supply chain get home safely to their families at the end of every working day.

Welcoming the award, David Magee, McLaughlin & Harvey Group H&S Manager, said: "This Award is our 11th consecutive Gold Award and it is particularly pleasing to receive this for health and safety performance during a very difficult year for everyone. It is recognition of the commitment that our site teams have demonstrated in sustaining high standards of health and safety in all operations, whilst managing COVID-19 at the same time."

Julia Small, RoSPA's achievements director, added: "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."
