NP Aerospace wins Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Silver award

NP Aerospace, based in Coventry, UK has won a Silver Award in the Achievement category, demonstrating its dedication to ensuring its staff  and customers get home safely at the end of every working day.

This achievement demonstrates the drive, passion and dedication of the company and staff to continually improve. The award is based on the organisation’s individual occupational health and safety performance assessed against the strict judging criteria.

In order to achieve the award, NP Aerospace Limited had to provide evidence of a good health and safety system by answering key performance questions and supporting the answers with a concise portfolio of relevant documentation.

The RoSPA Health and Safety Awards is the largest occupational health and safety awards programme in the UK. Now into its 67th year, the Awards have almost 2,000 entries every year, covering nearly 50 countries and a reach of over seven million employees. The programme recognises organisations’ commitment to continuous improvement in the prevention of accidents and ill health at work, looking at entrants’ overarching health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.

While most awards are non-competitive – recognising individual organisations’ achievements – competitive awards are presented in 20 industry sectors and for specialist areas of health and safety management.

Bal Beesla, NP Aerospace Environmental, Health and Safety Manager, said: “It is an honour to achieve the RoSPA Silver Award as health and safety is key to our values at NP Aerospace. Considering the industry we work in, it is not only our mission to protect the lives of defence and security personnel but also those that work for us to allow us to achieve this mission. Thank you to the NP team for continuously keeping each other safe through collaboration and dedication”.

Julia Small, RoSPA’s Achievements Director, said: “Accidents at work and work-related ill health don’t just have huge financial implications or cause major disruption – they significantly impact an individual’s quality of life. That’s why good safety performance deserves to be recognised and rewarded.

“We are thrilled that NP Aerospace has won a RoSPA Award and would like to congratulate them on showing an unwavering commitment to keeping their employees, clients and customers safe from accidental harm and injury.”

Sponsored by Croner-i, the RoSPA Awards scheme is the longest-running of its kind in the UK, and receives entries from organisations across the globe, making it one of the most sought-after achievement awards for the health and safety industry.
