Veolia picks up health and safety awards

Ten gold health and safety awards were scooped last week by waste management firm Veolia Environmental Services for the second year running.

Gold awards presented by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) are made to recognise achievement in occupational health and safety.

Veolia chief executive Cyrille du Peloux said: Historically, the waste industrys health and safety record has come in for criticism. I am therefore very pleased that Veolia is showing a clear lead in ensuring that health safety and staff welfare is a business priority.

RoSPA awards manager David Rawlins said Veolia was a fine example to many other companies. We would like to see more organisations following their lead.

The gold awards were awarded to Veolias: Rainham landfill, MRF, transfer station and composting operation; Pitsea landfill; Ockendon landfill; Sandy Lane landfill; Greenwhich integrated waste facility; Church Marshes transfer station and Northumberland Wharf transfer station.

An awards ceremony and dinner will be held next month where the winners of further RoSPA health and safety awards will be announced.
