Leading UK palletised distribution network, Palletline has been awarded the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Gold Occupational Health and Safety Award for the third year running.
Recognised for outstanding excellence in health and safety, Palletline once again impressed the judges to come out on top. The award will be presented to the Palletline team at a ceremony at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole on July 14, 2015.
Palletline managing director Graham Leitch said: “Palletline has created a culture where health and safety considerations are central to every task undertaken by every member of staff. Thanks to our policy of continually reviewing, honing and improving our health and safety procedures, our accident rates are a massive 79 per cent lower than the pallet industry average.
We believe that a strong safety focus feeds into all areas of the business and ties in with our focus on innovation and service excellence to improve everything we do for members and their customers. We are delighted that the exemplary work of our health and safety team, led by Ken Bell, continues to be recognised by RoSPA and we look forward to accepting the award.”
David Rawlins, RoSPA’s awards manager, said: “The RoSPA Awards encourage improvement in occupational health and safety management. Organisations that gain recognition for their health and safety management systems, such as Palletline Plc, contribute to raising standards overall and we congratulate them.”
