W M Walsh Surfacing is a winner in the RoSPA Awards 2014 W M Walsh Surfacing, of London, is among the winners in the RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2014. The Silver award in the prestigious annual scheme run by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) will be presented during a ceremony at Excel London on June 17. 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 58 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 the raising of occupational health and safety standards across the board. Organisations that gain recognition for their health and safety management systems, such as W M Walsh Surfacing Ltd, contribute to a collective raising of the bar for other organisations to aspire to, and we offer them our congratulations.”

“For the second concurrent year we are delighted to have been awarded the prestigious RoSPA Silver award for 2014” said Mr Wayne Walsh, Managing Director of W M Walsh Surfacing. “With a strong innovative team combining our best expertise in all areas of Health & Safety and Environment, we are proud in playing a leading role for business within our sector driving the importance of not only maintaining standards but to consistently strive to improve. In order for us to be successful it is important that we remain focused and committed to the safety and health of our staff, the public and our Clients’ needs for which we have been recognised.

Craig Sharp, Health and Safety Manager, said: “This is another fantastic achievement for 2014. W M WALSH SURFACING LTD is always looking to maintain a very high standard of health and safety in a very demanding industry to keep up with new legislation and our client requirements. This is achieved by our great management systems we have in place, our management staff and every employee on the ground, understanding the requirements expected of them and complying with it, they have all done a fantastic job and W M WALSH SURFACING LTD are very proud to receive this award for the second year in a row, because of their attitudes and commitment.”
