A&P Group is celebrating after landing an internationally-recognised award for demonstrating high health and safety standards.

A&P Group has received the RoSPA Commended in the Engineering Services Sector Health and Safety Award, in recognition of its work to ensure staff, clients and supply chain get home safely to their families at the end of every working day.

The award celebrates A&P Group’s overall commitment to HSEQ, which includes its Work Safe Home Safe (WSHS) campaign. Launched in 2018, the campaign outlines the four core values that underpin A&P Group’s safety culture for all staff – care, commitment, communication and compliance – and has included additional toolbox talks for employees as well as school roadshows and a safety poster competition.

Kevin Peart, A&P Group’s HSEQ Director said: “This highly coveted award win is testament to the commitment we have placed on protecting the safety and wellbeing of our staff, customers and sub-contractors. We are delighted to have our efforts and commitment recognised by RoSPA, particularly as we competed in the highly competitive and broad engineering category.”

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.

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 7million people are directly impacted by the RoSPA Awards, but the scheme’s influence is even wider.”
