Chubb Secures Two Gold Awards for Occupational Health and Safety
Chubb Systems has received a Gold Award from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) for the fifth consecutive year, while Chubb Fire & Security received the Gold Award for the second time, following its first Gold Award in 2016. RoSPA Gold Award winners are recognised for achieving a high level of performance while demonstrating well-developed occupational health and safety management systems and culture, outstanding control of risk and very low levels of error, harm and loss. Chubb, a leading provider of security and fire-safety solutions, is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).
Chubb Systems has been awarded a gold medal in recognition of achieving the top gold award for five years in a row. Nichola Maher, EH&S Manager, Chubb Systems, accepted the award on behalf of the organisation. “We are proud to have achieved the top Gold Award five times in a row. It demonstrates that we are never complacent, and we go to extensive lengths to protect employees, and have a robust, on-going commitment to ensuring every Chubb employee is working in the safest conditions.”
Mark Redding, head of environmental, health and safety at Chubb Fire & Security, said health and safety is a core value and at the heart of everything Chubb does, at every level of the business. “We attribute tremendous value and importance on these awards, and achieving these results receives the utmost support from the most senior levels of our organisation.”
By achieving a RoSPA Award, an organisation is proving its commitment to maintaining a well-balanced approach to health and safety management, as well as demonstrating superior practices in areas such as leadership and workplace contribution.
This year, Chubb joined RoSPA in celebrating 100 years of saving lives at its Centenary Royal Garden Party Buckingham Palace. The event provided an opportunity for members, award winners and supporters to join staff and volunteers in marking a century of hard work and dedication to save lives and reduce injuries.
