Ardmac, the leading construction specialist, 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.

Ardmac has achieved an Order of Distinction (19 consecutive Golds) in the internationally-renowned RoSPA Health and Safety Awards, the longest-running industry awards scheme in the UK. The team were presented with the award during a ceremony at ExCeL, London on Tuesday, June 18, 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.

Diarmaid Magee, SHEQ Director, Ardmac said: “We are proud to once again receive the RoSPA award for our 19th consecutive year. Our Safety First approach leads our guiding principles and is foremost in our thinking. To be recognised again this year is a testament to the focus and dedication of our teams to safety, in everything we do and wherever we impact.”

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.”

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.

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