Claims Consortium Group celebrated the 100 year anniversary of The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) at a garden party last week, held at Buckingham Palace. RoSPA is a registered charity which promotes safety and the prevention of accidents, and has been working to change legislation and attitudes worldwide.
Claims Consortium was invited to attend the coveted event, having recently been awarded the highest standard of recognition at RoSPA’s annual awards scheme. HRH Prince Andrew, Duke of York was also in attendance to celebrate the charity’s achievements.
John Thistlethwaite, Health & Safety Manager, said: “It was an honour to be invited to the garden party, and was a brilliant opportunity to celebrate the scheme’s 100 years, as well as to meet fellow RoSPA members.”
Nick Turner, Professional Services Director, added: “We have been RoSPA members for a number of years now, and were proud to have been awarded Gold standard for the first time at this year’s awards. We take the health and safety of our 300+ staff and 250 strong network of contractors and surveyors very seriously, and it is always a huge achievement to be recognised by such a scheme.”
RoSPA runs its awards each year, which recognise companies with excellent health and safety records worldwide, and considers entrants’ occupational health and safety management systems as well as leadership and workforce involvement.
Claims Consortium Group’s Head of Technical, Tom Burroughs, has been appointed to a senior technical role on the board of trustees for Taunton-based charity Stand Against Violence.
Claims Consortium CEO Jeremy Hyams has pledged to actively support the work of the Institute of Customer Service in his role as Vice President.
As part of our annual staff and supplier awards we were proud to be officially presented with our Queen’s Award for Enterprise, by Her Majesty’s Lord Lieutenant of Somerset, Mrs Annie Maw.
