Bradford District Care NHS Foundation Trust has been recognised for the tenth year running for its occupational health and safety by the Royal Society of the Prevention of Accident (RoSPA). For the fourth consecutive year, the Care Trust has achieved the gold award in the internationally recognised scheme.

Members of the Trust’s estates and facilities team attended a ceremony in Birmingham this month to collect their award. David Gibson, Facilities Business and Governance Manager, said of the accolade “We are delighted to win our fourth successive gold award. Thank you to all members of Trust staff, as health and safety is an integral part of everybody’s role within our organisation so this was a real team effort.  This award is testament to the high standards of safety practised by all teams and staff across the Trust.”

RoSPA recognises the commitment to accident and ill-health prevention in businesses and organisations, and is the largest and longest-running programme of its kind in the UK. The majority of awards are non-competitive and mark achievement at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels. Gold medals are presented to organisations that sustain the high standards of the gold level of achievement over consecutive years.
