Seventh straight health and safety award for Jones Bros6th May 2015

The outstanding health and safety standards of Ruthin-based civil engineering firm Jones Bros have been recognised for a seventh year in a row.

Jones Bros have been awarded a gold medal at the 2015 Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Awards, which commend firms that show outstanding dedication to health and safety procedures in the workplace.

The gold medal, which is given to companies that achieve five or more consecutive RoSPA gold awards, will be presented to Jones Bros at an awards ceremony at the ExCeL centre, London, on June 16.

Dave Gibson, Health and Safety Manager at Jones Bros, said: “Our seventh straight success at the RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards illustrates how central to all of our activities the issue of health and safety is.

The RoSPA awards are open to businesses and organisations of all types and sizes from across the UK and overseas. They consider entrants’ overarching occupational health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.

David Rawlins, RoSPA’s awards manager, said: “The RoSPA Awards encourage improvement in occupational health and safety management. Organisations that gain recognition for their health and safety management systems, such as Jones Bros, contribute to raising standards overall and we congratulate them.”

Founded in the 1950s, Jones Bros employs approximately 300 people. It operates across the UK in sectors including construction of waste management facilities, highways and renewable energy projects such as wind farms.
