Bradford District Care NHS Foundation Trust has been recognised for the eleventh year running for its occupational health and safety by the Royal Society of the Prevention of Accident (RoSPA).

This year, for the fifth year running, the Care Trust has scooped the top gold award in the internationally recognised scheme, for sustaining the highest standards of achievement over consecutive years.

RoSPA recognises the commitment to accident and ill-health prevention across all 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.

David Gibson, Facilities Business and Governance Manager for Bradford District Care NHS Foundation Trust, said: “We are delighted to win our fifth successive gold award which is an amazing achievement. The award recognises the commitment of all our staff because health and safety is part of everyone’s role, from risk assessing to spotting and preventing potential hazards. It’s definitely a big team effort and the award is testament to the high standards of safety practised by all teams across our Trust.”
