Success for Imerys Minerals in RoSPA Safety Awards

Friday, May 22nd, 2009

Imerys Minerals Limited of Par, Cornwall, has won the Mining and Quarrying Sector at the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents Occupational Health and Safety Awards.
There were 15 other successful firms from the sector in this year’s RoSPA Awards, winning two President’s Awards, six gold medals, four gold and three silver awards.
Overall, it was another record-breaking year in RoSPA’s awards scheme, with more than 1,650 businesses and organisations recognised for their commitment to protecting the health and well-being of their employees and others.
Tom Mullarkey, RoSPA chief executive, said: “The way organisations manage health and safety speaks volumes about their overall values and professionalism, and the winners of RoSPA awards are to be congratulated for their commitment to improvement in this sphere.
“Those who have gained recognition for their achievements, particularly during tough economic conditions, raise the bar for other organisations to follow, inspiring them to do likewise. Through the public example they have set, the reservoir of safety knowledge and good practice is increased, and this should serve to save lives and reduce injuries and ill health in workplaces across the UK and beyond.”
The awards, now in their 53rd year, were sponsored by the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health (NEBOSH).
Award ceremonies were held over three days (May 12-14) at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel, at the National Exhibition Centre.
Major awards were presented by Lord Jordan of Bournville, RoSPA President, Lord Brougham and Vaux, Vice-President, and Tom Mullarkey at gala evening dinners attended by 3,000 people.
