Moy Park achieves health & safety hat-trick
Poultry supplier Moy Park has received three internationally recognised awards for health and safety standards.
The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) has awarded Moy Park the Gold Award for the seventh consecutive year, as well as the Fleet Safety Gold Medal for the sixth year, and the Fleet Safety Technology Trophy.
A panel of judges made up of safety, management and academic experts consider entrants’ overarching health and safety strategies and management processes, as well as leadership and workforce engagement.
Moy Park’s head of sustainability and risk, Declan Cunningham, said: “Safety is a condition at Moy Park and it’s a focus that is embraced by every team member right across the business. Risk assessment, accident prevention and monitoring forms the bed rock of our health and safety campaigns, and we’re proud to see our facilities attain new safety milestones regularly. We are delighted to be once again recognised by RoSPA and continue to focus on world leading safety standards.”
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 seven million people are directly impacted by the RoSPA Awards, but the scheme’s global influence is even wider – with nearly 2,000 organisations from 46 countries represented this year.”
