A commitment to workplace safety has earned Waste Recycling Group (WRG) a prestigious Gold accolade in this year's Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2011.
The company, which operates from 173 locations across the country, has received the gold rank for demonstrating a reduced rate of accidents, high levels of compliance and excellent health and safety management systems.
The award for occupational health and safety was presented at a ceremony at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel at the National Exhibition Centre.
The company provides a range of cost- and environmentally-effective processing, recycling, disposal and energy recovery services for local authority and private commercial customers throughout the UK. It employs around 1,200 people.
Group Safety Health Environment and Quality Manager, Paul Stokes, said: "We strive to deliver an effective and sensible health and safety management system throughout our network of facilities. We're delighted with this award and the recognition it gives to all our employees who come to work day after day and do their work safely."
Safety charity RoSPA launched its awards programme 55 years ago and the scheme looks not only at accident records, but also entrants' health and safety management systems, including important practices such as strong leadership and workforce involvement.
David Rawlins, RoSPA's awards manager, said: "Waste Recycling Group has shown that it is committed to striving for such continuous improvement and we are delighted to honour it through the presentation of an award."
