MIDA Civils awarded Double Gold by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents
MIDA Civil Engineering Ltd fought off stiff international competition to scoop two prestigious Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Awards, demonstrating the company’s commitment to health and safety excellence.
MIDA won a RoSPA Gold Award – for health and safety performance, and a RoSPA Fleet Safety Gold Award – for managing occupational road risk, during the 2022 calendar year.
The RoSPA Health and Safety Awards is the largest occupational health and safety awards programme in the UK. Now into its 67th year, the Awards have almost 2,000 entries every year, covering nearly 50 countries and a reach of over seven million employees. The programme recognises organisations’ commitment to continuous improvement in the prevention of accidents and ill health at work, looking at entrants’ overarching health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.
James Brown, HSEQT Director commented:
“A fantastic achievement by all at MIDA, this award represents our commitment to engineer a new standard of excellence.”
Vicky Carr, Procurement Manager also commented:
“MIDA are committed to improving the safety of all our fleet vehicle drivers and wider road users – this award recognises that commitment and supports our fleet safety vision.”Michael Clorley – Director
Julia Small, RoSPA’s Achievements Director, said:
“Accidents at work and work-related ill health don’t just have huge financial implications or cause major disruption – they significantly impact an individual’s quality of life. That’s why good safety performance deserves to be recognised and rewarded.
We are thrilled that MIDA Civil Engineering Ltd have won a RoSPA Award and would like to congratulate them on showing an unwavering commitment to keeping their employees, clients and customers safe from accidental harm and injury.”
Sponsored by Croner-i, the RoSPA Awards scheme is the longest-running of its kind in the UK, and receives entries from organisations across the globe, making it one of the most sought-after achievement awards for the health and safety industry.
