2nd August 2018 by Networks
The prestigious annual health and safety awards are run by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) and are internationally recognised as the most sought-after accolade in the health and safety industry by organisations from every sector.
NGN received a gold award in the non-competitive achievement category based on their occupational health and safety performance assessed against the judging criteria.
The judges, consisting of highly experienced health and safety professionals, looked at NGN’s overarching occupational health and safety management system activities throughout 2017 and performance against key indicators, including practices such as leadership, workforce involvement, key achievements and the prevention of accidents and ill-health.
Mark Simpson, health and safety compliance manager, said: “I am delighted for all NGN colleagues for achieving this prestigious award, which is independent recognition of everyone’s positive attitude to health and safety.
“We take health and safety very seriously at NGN and this award is recognition for everyone within NGN of their commitment to the subject and a great way to allow us to continually challenge and improve our performance.”
NGN will be receiving their gold award at a ceremony on 13 September in Glasgow.
