A Cubbington construction company has struck gold in recognition of the way it protects its staff from accidents and injury.
O’Brien Contractors has won the Gold Award in the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2014.
The company will be presented with the prize at a ceremony at the Hilton Metropole, at the NEC, on Thursday, May 15.
RoSPA, a national charity,, aims to save lives and reduce injuries and in support of that mission, the awards – which date back 58 years – recognise the commitment to continuous improvement in accident and ill health prevention at work.
It is the latest in a string of awards for O’Brien Contractors including Contractor of the Year at the Building Awards 2014, a National Chamber Award and the SME Award at the Celebrating Construction Awards.
O’Brien Contractors managing director Peter O’Brien said: “Any recognition of the company’s qualities and practices is great news but health and safety is such a huge issue in construction and so to achieve gold in the RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards is testament to just how seriously we take it.”
