Five ROSPA Awards for Dyer & Butler in recognition of health & safety excellence

Dyer & Butler, an engineering services specialist focused on essential infrastructure including airports, railways and highways, has received five prestigious RoSPA awards for demonstrating consistent health and safety excellence.

Dyer & Butler Ltd has received a RoSPA Order of Distinction Award (15 consecutive Golds), as well as additional Order of Distinction Awards in association with clients Gatwick Airport Ltd and Heathrow Airport Ltd. In addition, Dyer & Butler’s rail division (9 consecutive Golds) and Dyer & Butler Electrical Ltd (5 consecutive Golds) have received RoSPA Gold Medal Awards.

The internationally-recognised awards were presented to Dyer & Butler in recognition of its achievements in health and safety management systems including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.

Organisations receiving a RoSPA Award are recognised as being world-leaders in health and safety practice. Every year, nearly two thousand entrants vie to achieve the highest possible accolade in what is the UK’s longest-running health and safety industry awards.

Dyer & Butler COO Richard Walker commented:

“The safety of our people and the communities we work in will always be a core value of our organisation. This award from RoSPA is testament to the exemplary health and safety values, practice and performance that is inherent to our culture and demonstrates well deserved recognition for our people and their unrelenting commitment to delivering health and safety excellence.”

Safety, Sustainability & Training Director Steve Broom commented:

“The achievement of this year’s RoSPA Awards is a special moment in Dyer & Butler’s health and safety culture. Achieving the Order of Distinction across many of our operating divisions is a firm demonstration of our commitment to health and safety and the reinforcement of our values in delivering safely for our people and our key clients. Whilst it is right to stop and celebrate our achievements, the hard work to maintain our standards will continue to ensure that everyone is “Safe by choice, not by chance.”

Julia Small, RoSPA’s Head of Qualifications, Awards and Events, said:

“The RoSPA Awards scheme is the longest-running of its kind in the UK, but it receives entries from organisations around the world, making it one of the most sought-after global accolades in health and safety.

“RoSPA wants every employee, wherever they are, to work safe in the knowledge that they will be going home unharmed and healthy at the end of every day. The RoSPA Award winners are vital to help achieve this goal, as by entering they are driving up standards and setting new benchmarks for organisations everywhere. Currently, around seven million people are directly impacted by the RoSPA Awards, but the scheme’s influence is even wider.”

Headline sponsor of the RoSPA Awards 2020 is NEBOSH – the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health – for the 15th consecutive year. For more information about the RoSPA Awards visit
