Gold standard: Rokbak earns top health and safety award

MOTHERWELL-based hauler manufacturer Rokbak has won a second consecutive RoSPA gold health and safety award.

Every year, around 2,000 entrants apply to achieve the accolade in what is the UK’s longest-running health and safety industry awards.

Rokbak said the gold awards – as well as four successive silver accolades in the previous years – highlight the improvements made at the firm’s North Lanarkshire site and in the training and welfare of its employees.

“Health and safety has always been a priority for us so we are thrilled to be recognised with a gold award from RoSPA,” said Paul Douglas, Rokbak’s MD. “We’ve had a busy year with the rebrand and the various updates and changes that came with that, as well as lots of new team members on the shop floor, so to hold firm and win our sixth consecutive award is a fantastic result.

“This achievement is a testament to the whole team, their efforts have ensured our working environment remains a safe place.”

Julia Small, RoSPA’s achievements director, commented, “This is a fantastic and well-deserved accomplishment. All our award entrants demonstrate their unwavering commitment and passion for keeping people safe at work.

“By receiving this recognition, Rokbak joins like-minded businesses and organisations worldwide, who represent the very best in their approach to health and safety.”
