Chubb Systems has received a Gold Award from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) for the fourth consecutive year, while Chubb Fire & Security received the Gold Award for the first time, following its Silver Award in 2015. 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).
Mark Redding, head of EH&S, Chubb Fire & Security and Chubb Systems, accepted the awards on behalf of the organisation. The RoSPA awards highlight Chubb's commitment to occupational health and safety and recognise the extensive lengths Chubb goes to protect employees.
"We ensure every Chubb employee is working in the safest of conditions, and our occupational health and safety approach is at the heart of everything we do," said Redding. "The two Gold Awards are a tribute to the value we place on employee welfare."
RoSPA has been campaigning to prevent accidents, save lives and reduce injuries for 100 years. Julia Small, RoSPA's head of awards and events, said: "To win an award at such a highly-regarded event as the RoSPA Awards is a great achievement for our winners. It recognises its commitment to maintaining an excellent health and safety record and raises the bar for other organisations to aspire to. We offer them our congratulations.
Its Occupational Health and Safety Awards are internationally known, and this year took place at Safety & Health Expo 2016, London in June 2016. 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.
