Port of Tyne wins health and safety award
The Port of Tyne has been awarded a Gold Medal in this year's Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Health and Safety Awards in the UK.
Tyne was handed the accolade by RoSPA after achieving five consecutive Gold Awards in a row for its health and safety practices, the only port in the country to have done so.
“The Port of Tyne uses continuous improvement to help prevent accidents. We make health and safety our top priority and continually improve though safety training, awareness campaigns and performance,” said Steve Reid, head of health and safety at the Port of Tyne.
“It is testament to the port's commitment that we have consistently been awarded Gold in these prestigious annual awards.”
This year the Port of Tyne launched its health and safety golden rules of support, comply and intervene, which encourage open and honest conversations about health and safety issues and inspire employees to continue to make safety their number one priority.
The RoSPA Health and Safety Awards, now in their 63rd year, offer organisations the opportunity to show their ongoing commitment to raising health and safety standards.
Julia Small, RoSPA's Head of Qualifications, 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, they allow organisations to demonstrate excellence in the workplace, with a commitment to the wellbeing of not only employees but all those who interact with health and safety.”
