Binnies’ Joint Venture team announce award success for exemplary health and safety standards

Binnies UK Ltd is thrilled to announce that its amey-binnies (ab) joint venture has achieved a prestigious accolade in what has been described as the “toughest health and safety competition in the world”.

ab has received a Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) President’s Health and Safety Award, presented for seven consecutive gold awards for exemplary health and safety standards, and the joint venture’s achievement will be recognised at a live virtual awards ceremony next month.

The ceremony, hosted by broadcaster and journalist Ed James on 9 September, will be attended by RoSPA President Baroness Jolly and Chief Executive Errol Taylor and the event will feature an online auction to raise funds for the vital Keeping Kids Safe campaign.

The prestigious RoSPA awards recognise world leaders in health and safety practice, and each year sees almost 2000 entrants vie to achieve the highest possible accolade in the UK’s longest-running health and safety industry awards.
