26th March 2019

px has been handed a prestigious award in recognition of its practices and achievements in helping its staff get home safely at the end of the working day.

We have achieved a Gold Medal (5 consecutive Golds) in the internationally-renowned RoSPA Health and Safety Awards, the longest-running industry awards scheme in the UK.

Another hugely successful year for Teesside Gas Processing Plant, awarded the RoSPA Order of Distinction (23 consecutive Golds) Award for health and safety performance during the period of January 01, 2018 to December 31, 2018.

We will be presented with the awards during a ceremony at Hilton Birmingham Metropole hotel on Thursday, June 6, 2019.

The RoSPA Awards scheme, which receives entries from organisations around the world, recognises achievement in health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.

Greg Mitchinson, Executive Director – SHE, Technical & Risk Management said:

“This reward recognises our people’s enduring commitment to achieving high standards of health and safety, wherever they work with in the px Group.”

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.”

Gold medals, president’s awards, orders of distinction and the Patron’s Award are presented to organisations sustaining the high standards of the gold level over consecutive years.

Competitive awards go to the best entries in 24 industry sectors including construction, healthcare, transport and logistics, engineering, manufacturing and education.

There are specialist awards for health at work, environmental management and fleet safety, and excellence trophies for the best international, new entry, workforce involvement and organisation operating or based in Scotland. RoSPA’s top accolade is the Sir George Earle Trophy.
