Create Group scoops two prestigious construction industry safety awards
The RoSPA Awards scheme, which receives entries from organisations around the world, recognises achievement in health and safety management performance, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement and demonstrates a consistently excellent and continuous improvement in performance. It is the longest-running industry awards scheme in the UK.
At the heart of Create Group’s overall strategy is their ‘create a safer future’ initiative, which ensures its companies protect their people and environments at all times. Create Construction and Create Homes utilise their considerable experience in the delivery of high-volume student & hotel accommodation and quality residential homes respectively.
Claire Oakes, SHEQ Director at Create commented: “We really appreciate the recognition for our fourth Gold RoSPA award for Create Construction. Our strategy is to continually strive for improvement so as to maintain our exceptional safety culture - which helps us protect the health and safety of everyone affected by our undertakings.”
“As Create Homes is just in its infancy, we are extremely proud of the safety standards that have been achieved so soon after launch. We are delighted that RoSPA’s review of our SHE Management System culminated in a Silver Award the very first time we applied.”
The wins represent the extremely valuable work Claire and her team have initiated so far in embedding an excellent safety culture throughout the businesses. The Group already holds several awards and accreditations, including three previous ‘RoSPA Gold Awards’ and a ‘Considerate Constructor’s Gold Award’. Claire herself was also presented with the ‘Maurice Adamson Award’ by Safety Groups UK in 2018, which recognises her outstanding contribution to the Construction Industry.
Julia Small, RoSPA’s Head of Qualifications, Awards & Events, said: “The RoSPA Awards have become the key fixture in the health and safety calendar… Highly-respected, with almost 2,000 entrants every year, RoSPA award winners benefit from the wide-ranging rewards of improved sector reputation.”
The award ceremony is due to take place in Birmingham on June 6, 2019.
