HTS (Property and Environment) Limited takes top fleet safety honour at RoSPA Awards
HARLOW Council’s housing repairs and maintenance, facilities management and environmental services company has won the Fleet Safety Trophy at the RoSPA Fleet Safety Awards 2019.
HTS (Property and Environment) Limited, which provides services to residents, leaseholders and community organisations, received its award at a gala dinner at ExCeL London last Tuesday, June 18.
RoSPA’s Fleet Safety Trophy is presented annually to the organisation that demonstrates the most effective and cohesive programme for the management of occupational road risk, supported by historical performance data.
HTS (Property and Environment) Limited won this year’s trophy because of its excellent approach to managing occupational road risk, which is led from the top of the organisation, is well implemented through the management chain and is fully integrated into the company’s overall health and safety strategy. There is a strong training focus, covering managers and individual drivers, good manager-led incident investigation and a range of communications and feedback loops for implementing changes and improvements.
Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of awards, said: “HTS (Property and Environment) Limited has demonstrated a real commitment to the management of occupational road risk, with a particular focus on protecting members of the public. Its management system has resulted in a good overall reduction in incident rates and we are delighted to recognise its achievements through the presentation of the RoSPA Fleet Safety Trophy.”
RoSPA’s other top fleet award – the Fleet Safety Technology Trophy, which is sponsored by Tesco Dotcom and recognises an organisation’s commitment to using the latest technology in managing occupational road risk – was presented to McGee Group.
In addition to the competitive trophies in the RoSPA Fleet Safety Awards, safety charity RoSPA also presents non-competitive achievement awards and this year 53 organisations have had their management of fleet safety recognised in this way, with four – Colas Limited, NFT Distribution Operations Ltd (Bristol), NFT Distribution Operations Ltd (Crick), and Osborne – being presented with the President’s Award for winning more than 10 consecutive Golds.
The RoSPA Fleet Safety Awards form part of the RoSPA Health and Safety Awards, which is the country’s most prestigious, largest and longest-running awards programme of its type, attracting nearly 2,000 entrants each year, and is sponsored by NEBOSH. As well as this week’s London ceremony, there was a ceremony in Birmingham earlier in the month and another will take place in Glasgow in September.
Well done to everyone involved in winning this award. This is more evidence that keeping business local means a better quality service to our community. At this rate HTD are going to need a bigger trophy cabinet. Star performance.
