The team have received the prestigious RoSPA President’s (11 consecutive Golds) Health & Safety Award for working hard to ensure their personnel (staff and contractors) get home safely to their families at the end of every working day.

Organisations receiving a RoSPA Award are recognised as being world-leaders in health and safety practice. The RoSPA Health and Safety Awards is the largest occupational health and safety awards programme in the UK.

Now into its 67th year, the Awards have almost 2,000 entries every year, covering nearly 50 countries and a reach of over seven million employees. The programme recognises organisations’ commitment to continuous improvement in the prevention of accidents and ill health at work, looking at entrants’ overarching health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.

Ian Woodburn (Project Manager for Morson Projects’ Sellafield Operations) said:

“This award and recognition is for each and every one working on Sellafield Limited projects.

“We all understand and appreciate how important safety is in all aspects of the work we do, but the main driver is our very real desire to never see any of our colleagues and friends get hurt while doing their jobs, be it physical injury or mental health issues.  Morson Projects really try to ensure all our personnel feel part of the Morson family.”

Julia Small, RoSPA’s Achievements Director, said:

“Accidents at work and work-related ill health don’t just have huge financial implications or cause major disruption – they significantly impact an individual’s quality of life. That’s why good safety performance deserves to be recognised and rewarded.

“We are thrilled that Morson Projects have won a RoSPA Award and would like to congratulate them on showing an unwavering commitment to keeping their employees, clients and customers safe from accidental harm and injury.”

Sponsored by Croner-i, the RoSPA Awards scheme is the longest-running of its kind in the UK, and receives entries from organisations across the globe, making it one of the most sought-after achievement awards for the health and safety industry.
