The team at Horizon Construction, with its head office in Colchester, have achieved an internationally-recognised award for demonstrating high health and safety standards. Organisations receiving a prestigious RoSPA (“The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents”) Award are recognised as being world-leaders in health and safety practice.
Horizon Construction was amongst nearly 2,000 entrants this year, representing over 7 million employees, to be assessed for an accolade in the UK’s longest-running H&S industry awards scheme. Open to organisations around the world, the recognition by the accreditation of an Award demonstrates that standards ensure the safety of staff whilst at work, so they return safely to their families at the end of a working day. Horizon Construction received a RoSPA “Silver” Health and Safety Award.
All organisations which are accredited with an Award are committed to benchmarking their performance and development on an annual basis. This includes programmes to achieve continuous improvements in practices and higher levels of Award.
Phil Holding, Managing Director at Horizon Construction, said: “At this time of extreme challenges for individuals and businesses in dealing with the impact of a virus pandemic, the celebration of this accolade is somewhat muted. However, we cannot express enough how proud we are to have achieved this Award; perhaps even more so and relevant at this time. Horizon Construction is defined by its exceptional people and we place their health and safety and well-being at the centre of our business model and in everything we do. We know this positively impacts the quality of services we go on to provide to our clients. Achieving the Award has not gone without a lot of hard work by our team.”
Mr Holding continues: “We are delighted to be part of a vibrant awards community, where we will be actively involved in promoting best practice. We also look forward to delivering our commitment to the awards scheme to further raise health and safety standards.”
