RoSPA Gold Award for Health and Safety


“This award is testament to everything we work so hard to achieve – to ensure everyone can work safe and go home safe.”

Andy Shuttlewood, HSEQ director

For the fourth year running Tarmac has been awarded the internationally recognised RoSPA Gold award for demonstrating high health and safety standards, which included successfully adapting our operations to the challenges of COVID-19.

Organisations receiving a RoSPA Award are recognised as being world leaders in health and safety practice. Every year, nearly 2,000 entrants contend to achieve the highest possible accolade in what is the UK’s longest-running health and safety industry awards.

Andy Shuttlewood, HSEQ Director, said: “It’s amazing that we’ve achieved a gold medal four years in a row, they’re only presented to organisations sustaining the high standards of the gold level over consecutive years. We want to work together to continually ensure that we improve and learn from areas where we are performing well.

Julia Small, RoSPA’s Achievements Director, said: “The RoSPA Awards scheme is the longest-running of its kind in the UK, but it receives entries from organisations across the globe, making it one of the most sought-after achievement awards for health and safety worldwide.

“RoSPA is very proud of the achievements of its entrants, and with this award we recognise the best of the best, those organisations that have gone the extra mile, raising the bar for the delivery of safety in the workplace. Employees, wherever they may be, should be able to go to work safely in the knowledge that they will return home unharmed and healthy at the end of every day.”

Currently, around seven million people are directly impacted by the RoSPA Awards, but the scheme’s global influence is even wider – with nearly 2,000 organisations from 46 countries represented this year. I would also particularly want to thank our main sponsor NEBOSH, the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health, for their continued support for the 16th consecutive year.”
