Volvo Construction Equipment Division has bagged a Gold Award at the RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2011.

This is the second time in a row that the company has won the award for its very high level of health and safety performance, including the well developed occupational health and safety management systems and culture, outstanding control of risk, and very low levels of error, harm and loss.

“It is particularly pleasing that the company was able to win the RoSPA Gold Award in a consecutive year whilst undergoing a change of the health and safety management, indicating that that the health and safety culture in the company is recognised as an integral part of the business,” said Jonathan Hurley, Volvo CE's Business Process Manager. “Our commitment to continual improvement will ensure that our health and safety management system retains its reputation as one of the strongest in the industry and enables us to achieve our target of winning the award for a third time in 2012,” he concluded.
