LITA GROUP FACILITIES MANAGEMENT RECEIVES ROSPA GOLD AWARD FOR HEALTH AND SAFETY ACHIEVEMENTS FOR THE 22nd YEAR RUNNING RETAINING ORDER OF DISTINCTION
Lita Group Facilities Management (formerly known as CSG) is celebrating after landing an internationally-recognised award for demonstrating outstanding health and safety standards.
The company has received a RoSPA Gold Health and Safety Award for ensuring that all staff operate in a safe manner, protecting themselves and clients, and ensuring that they get home safely at the end of every working day.
This will be the 22nd consecutive year the company has achieved such an accolade – the only UK based FM and cleaning company to have done so. It therefore means the company has retained its Order of Distinction, originally awarded after the 15th consecutive Gold Award.
Organisations receiving a RoSPA Award are recognised as being world-leaders in health and safety practice. Every year, nearly 2,000 entrants vie to achieve the highest possible accolade in what is the UK’s longest-running H&S industry awards.
Nick Rastelli - Sales and Commercial Director for Lita Group, says: “What a fantastic achievement, and one we are very proud of. To retain our Gold Award standing is one thing but to have retained our Order of Distinction for over seven years, is quite another. It’s just brilliant news.
This shows, that for us, health and safety are not merely words but a complete way of thinking and operating.
“A big thanks to all of our staff for putting safety first and foremost and to Sally Evans and our H&S team for ensuring compliance all year round.”
Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of qualifications, awards and events, said: “The RoSPA Awards scheme is the longest running of its kind in the UK, but it receives entries from organisations around the world, making it one of the most sought-after global accolades in health and safety.
“RoSPA wants every employee, wherever they are, to work safe in the knowledge that they will be going home unharmed and healthy at the end of every day. The RoSPA Award winners are vital to help achieve this goal, as by entering they are driving up standards and setting new benchmarks for organisations everywhere. Currently, around 7million people are directly impacted by the RoSPA Awards, but the scheme’s influence is even wider.”
The majority of awards are non-competitive and mark achievement at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels. 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.
