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

For the eighth year running the Care Trust, that provides services across Bradford, Airedale, Wharfedale and Craven, has scooped the top gold award in the internationally recognised scheme, for sustaining the highest standards of achievement over consecutive years.

The Society recognises the commitment to accident and ill-health prevention across all organisations and it is the largest and longest-running programme of its kind in the UK.

Most awards are non-competitive and mark achievement at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels.

David Gibson, compliance and governance manager for Bradford District Care NHS Foundation Trust, said: “We are delighted to win our eighth successive gold award which is an amazing achievement, particularly during the last twelve months. The award recognises the commitment of staff across all areas of our organisation, including our mental health, children’s and community services, 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.”
