LEADING repairs and maintenance provider, Kier Harlow, is seeing double after achieving Gold in the prestigious Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Occupational Health & Safety Awards 2014, as well as being awarded a merit in the British Safety Council’s International Safety Awards.

The awards benchmark Kier Harlow’s health & safety performance and recognise its continuous drive for the highest standards of health and safety while carrying out repairs and maintenance to more than 10,000 council properties in the region.

Set up as a joint venture partnership between Harlow Council and Kier, Kier Harlow has been rewarded for its professional approach to preventing accidents, which includes carrying out regular health & safety briefings and training.

RoSPA’s awards manager, David Rawlins said: “The RoSPA Awards encourage the raising of occupational health & safety standards across the board. Organisations that gain recognition for their health & safety management systems, such as Kier Harlow, contribute to a collective raising of the bar for other organisations to aspire to, and we offer them our congratulations.”

Kier regional operations manager, John Phillips, said: “To receive both a RoSPA and BSC award is a great achievement. They demonstrate our employees’ dedication to continuously improving our health & safety practices and to maintaining the highest standards possible. The safety of employees, residents and members of the public has been, and always will be, of the utmost importance to Kier.”
