Precious prize presented to Pacific

PACIFIC picked up its Gold Award from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents at a glittering ceremony in Glasgow.

The framed certificate was handed over to Managing Director Brian Gallacher and Health and Safety Manager Jacqueline Leitch at RoSPA’s annual Health and Safety Awards gala dinner at the DoubleTree by Hilton on September 12.

The event is one of three across the United Kingdom that are regarded as the ultimate celebration of health and safety management excellence.

And the internationally-renowned awards are the longest-running industry recognition scheme in the UK.

The RoSPA Awards scheme, which receives entries from organisations around the world, recognises achievement in health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.

Brian said: “This is yet another example of how we at Pacific Building strive to be the best at absolutely everything we do.

“This award came after a fairly rigorous assessment of our processes and practices.

“It demonstrates our professionalism and commitment not just to delivering the best for our customers but looking after their safety too, while protecting the well-being of our staff.

The certificate was handed over by Errol Taylor, RoSPA Chief Executive.

Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of qualifications, awards and events, said: “The RoSPA Awards have become the key fixture in the health and safety calendar.

“Highly-respected, with almost 2,000 entrants every year, RoSPA award winners benefit from the wide-ranging rewards of improved sector reputation.”

The award to Pacific is non-competitive and is based on the company’s individual occupational health and safety performance assessed against the judging criteria.

The firm had to provide evidence of a good health and safety management system by answering key performance questions and supporting the answers with a concise portfolio of relevant documentation.

Pacific were first told by RoSPA that they had won the Gold Award honour in July, 2019.
