Ian Williams is delighted to announce it has achieved the prestigious Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) President’s Award for its health and safety practices. Presented as a result of Ian Williams having received 10 consecutive Gold Awards, the coveted President’s Award celebrates consistently high levels of performance in occupational health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.
Richard Parry, Safety, Health and Environmental Manager for Ian Williams comments: “This is a terrific accomplishment for us as an organisation and an honour to receive the President’s award. It’s an absolute endorsement of how we place health and safety at the heart of our business, so that our employees can work safely, day in and day out. We’re committed to delivering what our customers need whenever and wherever they need it, and our teams are working in 100s of properties across the UK daily, carrying out skills like painting, M+E, roofing and plumbing. But we never cut corners in the delivery of these services. I am proud of the fact that Ian Williams is not only a great place to work, but a safe one too. Of course, despite this recognition we won’t be resting on our laurels. The business will continue to drive innovation and practice with health and safety at the forefront of everything we do.”
Mike Turner, Ian Williams Director adds: “Winning the President’s Award is an exceptional achievement by all concerned and a particular thank you to Richard Parry for his leadership in helping us to attain this. It’s especially important as it reflects excellence in our core business strategy of attracting, retaining and developing a sustainable, healthy and vibrant workforce which has safe working at its heart. Ian Williams wants to continue to be an employer of choice for people looking to develop their careers, or those who are new to the industry and are interested in our award-winning Apprenticeship schemes. However, this is only a realistic mission if health and safety is foremost in all our minds and practices to make us an attractive proposition as an employer. The President’s Award underpins this commitment.”
Ian Williams is due to be presented with the award at a ceremony in July.
