The North of England’s gas distributer, Northern Gas Networks (NGN), has been awarded a prestigious Gold award by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) for excellent health and safety practices during 2019.
It is the third consecutive year that NGN has achieved a Gold award; demonstrating the company’s strong commitment to the safety of its customers and employees.
The international RoSPA Health and Safety Awards recognise important achievements in health and safety management systems, including good practice in the areas of leadership and workforce involvement.
Each year, businesses submit a portfolio of evidence to demonstrate their commitment to core health and safety objectives. All the submissions are then independently assessed by a RoSPA panel.
Mark Simpson, EHS Manager for Regulation at NGN, said: “As the North of England’s gas distributer, operating a safe and reliable gas network is our number one priority. I am delighted with the Gold RoSPA achievement. It recognises the hard work and commitment of all our employees to ensuring the health and safety of our customers and our colleagues. And to have been recognised with a Gold award for the third consecutive year demonstrates how excellent health and safety management is core to what we do as an organisation.”
Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of qualifications, awards and events, said: “The RoSPA Awards have become the key fixture in the health and safety calendar, with new sponsors and new awards this year including the Leisure Safety Awards, the Safe@Work Safe@Home Award and the Inspiration Awards. Highly-respected, with almost 2,000 entrants every year, RoSPA award winners benefit from the wide-ranging rewards of improved sector reputation.”
Northern Gas Networks will be presented with the award at a ceremony in Glasgow on Thursday 12th September 2019.
