    One Direct, our in-house repairs and maintenance service, has been awarded the prestigious RoSPA Gold Award in recognition of its excellent health and safety practices for the second year running.

    One Direct, our in-house repairs and maintenance service, has been awarded the prestigious RoSPA Gold Award in recognition of its excellent health and safety practices for the second year running.

    The RoSPA Awards scheme, which receives entries from organisations around the world, recognises achievement in a wide range of areas relating to health and safety management, including leadership and workforce involvement.

    Luke Driscoll, our Director of Property and Asset Management, commented: “Ensuring that our teams work safely protecting themselves and our customers is one of our top priorities so it’s great news that the One Direct team has again been recognised for working safely by retaining RoSPA’s Gold Award.”

    The One Direct submission was led by the health and safety team (Mark Bloxidge, Health & Safety Manager & Jessica Langley, Health and Safety Advisor). It involved detailed information being provided on 10 key areas of the health and safety management system and was backed up with 80 separate pieces of supporting evidence from across all workstreams of the business.

    The strength of One Directs submission was our ability to demonstrate that our safety policies and procedures have been truly embedded into our everyday activities and our programme of inspections and audits have continued to drive a programme of continuous improvement.

    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. Highly-respected, with almost 2,000 entrants every year, RoSPA award winners benefit from the wide-ranging rewards of improved sector reputation.”

    The Gold Award will be presented to One Direct at the RoSPA Health and Safety Awards on Tuesday 18 June.
