CH&Co Group Achieves Gold with Top-Level
Health and Safety Award for 2nd Year Running
C
H&Co Group has been
awarded the highest accolade
of a RoSPA Gold Award for the
nd
2 year running.
The award reflects the group’s
outstanding
health
and
safety
performance for 2017 across its entire
estate and is confirmation of its
commitment to raising standards of
health and safety management.
The Royal Society for the Prevention of
Accidents (RoSPA) Awards scheme,
which
receives
entries
from
organisations around the world,
recognises achievement in health and
safety management systems, including
practices such as leadership and
workforce involvement.
As well as retaining this top-level
accreditation from RoSPA, CH&Co has
also scored an impressive 100% in the
Achilles audit, which assesses health
and safety practices and supply chains
for compliance with laws, regulations
and standards.
Emma Hill, head of food, health, safety
and environment at CH&Co Group,
comments: “It wouldn’t be possible to
gain these accreditations without the
hard work of my HSE colleagues and
the wider CH&Co team ensuring that our
safety standards are maintained across
all of our sites and offices. From short
refresher recaps to our in-depth training
courses, everything adds up to ensure
that we continually exceed our safety

environment at CH&Co Group
requirements. It’s wonderful that
everyone’s dedication has been
recognised with the RoSPA Gold Award.”
Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of awards
and events, said: “The RoSPA Awards
are the most highly-respected in the
health and safety arena, with almost
2,000 entrants every year, and allow
organisations to prove excellence in the
workplace, demonstrating a commitment
to the wellbeing of not only employees
but all those who interact with it.”
CH&Co Group Chief Operating Officer,
Terry Waldron, added: “We’re extremely
proud to have achieved this top-level
accreditation for the 2nd year running.
It’s a clear indication of the emphasis the
operations and health and safety
leadership place on our health and
safety culture across the entire group.
CH&Co has been through a period of
significant growth but this clearly hasn’t
phased our team and we’ve maintained
the same strong focus. The RoSPA
Gold Award shows that the health and
safety systems in place are clear and
robust and I congratulate and thank
everyone involved.”
CH&Co Group will be presented with the
award at a ceremony at ExCeL, London
on Tuesday 19 June 2018.
