HOUSEBUILDER Redrow Homes has received a top award for its “six in a row” track record on health and safety.

The Gold Medal comes after the company won six consecutive gold awards from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents in recognition of its safety record on building sites all over the UK. The award was presented at a ceremony in Birmingham.

Redrow’ group health and safety director Bob Sayers (pictured) said: “Taking pride in a job well done is very much at the heart of Redrow’s operations.

“Having robust health and safety procedures in place and adhering to them constantly is essential and we rely on the input and cooperation of every member of staff and all of our sub-contractors on site to maintain our strong record.

“Naturally we’re pleased when our achievements are recognised with awards like this but we will continue to prioritise health and safety in our business and to ensure we do not become complacent.”

RoSPA launched its awards programme 55 years ago. The scheme looks not only at accident records, but also entrants’ health and safety management systems, including important practices such as strong leadership and workforce involvement.
