which is a UK leader in specialist engineering, construction, demolition, decommissioning, remediation and environmental services, has been recognised for its approach to occupational health and safety by securing a gold award from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).
Keltbray secured the Gold level again on the back of its health and safety performance and behavioural safety-based programme.
HSQE Director for Keltbray, Keith Stableford, said: “We are delighted to be recognised by RoSPA for our efforts in improving health and safety. Last year, our combined initiatives and efforts helped drive down our Accident Frequency Rate from 1.72 to 1.50; 52% less than the construction industry average.
“At 0.20, our RIDDOR Frequency Rate was also considerably lower (68%) than the industry average for construction. However, it is crucial that we maintain this downward trend, and so we have a target to reduce this figure by a further 10% in 2014 as part of our goal of achieving our zero accidents target.
“This achievement is very much thanks to a team effort; from the operatives and their engagement with safety in the workplace to the boardroom and back. The energy and determination in terms of driving innovations and improvements across the business has been key to this success.”
Awards Manager for RoSPA’s, David Rawlins, said: “The RoSPA Awards encourage the raising of occupational health and safety standards across the board. Organisations that gain recognition for their health and safety management systems, such as Keltbray, contribute to a collective raising of the bar for other organisations to aspire to, and we offer them our congratulations.”
