Colas has landed two internationally-recognised RoSPA President awards for demonstrating high health and safety standards over consecutive years. President’s awards are given to those who demonstrate exceptional safety standards through the consistent achievement of Gold awards.
For the thirteenth year, Colas has received a RoSPA Gold Health and Safety Award for working hard to ensure its staff, customers, clients and contractors get home safely to their families at the end of every working day. And, for the fourteenth year, Colas has been awarded a RoSPA Gold Fleet Safety Award for managing occupational road risk.
Organisations receiving a RoSPA Awards 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.
Craig Streak, Director of SHEQ & Business Performance at Colas said: “One of our core values at Colas is Caring, this is reflected in our approach to the Health, Safety & Wellbeing of our employees, contractors and other third parties who come into contact with our operations. We are delighted to achieve these prestigious awards in recognition of the efforts from everyone in our business. We continue to see improvements as we develop our Safety Culture, and we have seen a significant increase in reporting of near miss incidents during 2021, which indicates the high levels of engagement our staff have with keeping themselves and their colleagues safe at work”
