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 Claire Lashbrook has taken on the role of Careers Advisor for the Exeter branch of the Chartered Institute of Insurance (CII), a new role to encourage young professionals into the sector.
Claims Consortium Group has been honoured at a Royal reception hosted by the Queen at Buckingham Palace this week.
Claims Consortium Group raised £2067 at its annual charity day on Friday 23 June, a joint fundraising event to raise money for local charity Stand Against Violence (SAV) and victims of the Grenfell Tower fire in London.
