Local News | Chantry Centre Wins Health & Safety AwardThe Chantry Centre, Andover is among the winners in the RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2015.

The Gold award in the prestigious annual scheme run by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) will be presented during a ceremony at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel, at the National Exhibition Centre, on 14 July 2015.

As the UK’s family safety charity, RoSPA’s mission to save lives and reduce injuries covers all ages and stages of life. In support of this mission, the RoSPA Awards, which date back 59 years, recognise commitment to continuous improvement in accident and ill health prevention at work. Through the scheme, which is open to businesses and organisations of all types and sizes from across the UK and overseas, judges consider entrants’ overarching occupational health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.

David Rawlins, RoSPA’s awards manager, said: “The RoSPA Awards encourage improvement in occupational health and safety management. Organisations that gain recognition for their health and safety management systems, such as The Chantry Centre, contribute to raising standards overall and we congratulate them.”

“We take health and safety very seriously at The Chantry Centre,” says Brian Brazier, Operations Manager. “It is even more satisfying when this recognition achieves a Gold Award.”
