RoSPA Launches Excellence Forum

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) has launched an ‘excellence forum’ to raise awareness and standards in workplaces across the globe.

The RoSPA Awards Excellence Forum will act as a research and reference facility for generating opinions on key health and safety topics and messages as well as current health and safety news and changes.  Members of the forum will also help RoSPA with occupational health and safety policy formulation and shaping future strategy.

All organisations successful in this year’s RoSPA Health and Safety Awards will be eligible to participate.

Karen McDonnell, RoSPA’s occupational health and safety policy adviser, said: “Sharing success has been central to RoSPA’s Health and Safety Awards for the last 60 years.

“This forum will represent a considerable hub of commitment, expertise and experience which can be channelled to help raise awareness and standards in the workplaces throughout the RoSPA Awards community and its associated supply chain.

Our award winners have demonstrated an appetite to get more involved. ¬†An example of this is our recent consultation on the health and safety needs of apprentices which sought the opinion of 60 top RoSPA award winners.”

The forum is one of RoSPA’s contributions towards achieving the aims of the new HSE strategy – Helping Great Britain work well – and will formalise the Society’s network of higher performing organisations.
