Howard Tenens have been awarded with a Gold RoSPA award by the Royal Society of the Prevention of Accidents for the second year running.

RoSPA, the UK’s leading safety organisation, has awarded Howard Tenens with a Gold RoSPA award, internationally recognised as the most sought after accolade within the Health and Safety industry. The award was achieved as a result of the progress Howard Tenens has made in respect to improving Health and Safety across the Group. Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of awards and events, said: “The RoSPA Awards are the most highly-respected in the health and safety arena, with almost 2,000 entrants every year, and allow organisations to prove excellence in the workplace, demonstrating a commitment to the wellbeing of not only employees but all those who interact with it.”

To achieve the award Howard Tenens had to answer a range of questions, supported with detailed evidence of procedures and practices in place across the Group which includes 20 different locations and 200+ vehicles covering the UK. Chris Coulson, National Health and Safety Manager at Tenens has been working towards attaining the Gold RoSPA standard since joining the company in 2014. Chris has introduced and implemented a number of initiatives across all depots and continues to do so. Following the news of the award retention Chris commented: “A lot of hard work and effort has been put in over the last 3 years from all our depots to retain the RoSPA Gold standard.  A really pleasing and fantastic result for Tenens.”

RoSPA promote safety and the prevention of accidents at work, at leisure, on the road, in the home and through safety education. Jamie Hartles Logistics Director at Howard Tenens commented: “Working towards and subsequently achieving the RoSPA Gold Standard again has continued to drive a change in culture across the business and improved our employee’s perception towards Health and Safety. We are delighted by our employee’s willingness to be involved in the process and that our commitment to both our teams and members of the public’s safety is being recognised.”

Howard Tenens will be formally accepting the award at the awards ceremony in Birmingham on the 4th July.
