A-PLANT has been awarded Gold at the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents’ (RoSPA) Health and Safety Awards for the eighth consecutive year.

The awards scheme recognises achievements in health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.

Douglas McLuckie, A-Plant’s director of risk management, said the result demonstrates the hire giant’s commitment to health and safety record. He said, “We are extremely proud to have received the highest possible standard for the eighth consecutive year. 

“Health and safety is of paramount importance at A-Plant and we are committed to continually setting new standards for our employers, partners and the industries in which we operate.

“We have an excellent track record for our health and safety performance from a wide range of industry bodies and have even introduced a number of company-wide health and safety initiatives to encourage employees to reflect on safe working practices and undertake extra safety training.

“Last year, our annual Safety Week shined a light on mental health in the workplace and the company’s Work Safe Home Safe campaign continued to encourage teams to take personal responsibility for the way they work.”
