University wins health and safety award

13th April 2010 | Health and Safety Signs

An educational institution in the north of England has won a prestigious health and safety award, it emerged yesterday (April 12th).

Leeds Metropolitan University has been carrying out a range of initiatives to reduce workplace accidents and to inform students of their responsibilities in relation to safety.

Those efforts have been recognised by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA), which will officially present the university with its Gold award next month.

"As well as there being clear ethical reasons and legal requirements for good health and safety management, there is also a strong business case," said David Rawlins, awards manager at RoSPA.

"RoSPA is delighted to publicly honour organisations which have demonstrated their work to improve performance in this sphere."

The university will receive its award - which underlines the value of implementing appropriate safety signs - at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel on May 13th.

Meanwhile, Kevin Molloy, from insurance broker Marsh, has urged companies to consider their employees' capabilities when devising fire safety procedures.
