IF only a Gold Standard is good enough for Pacific, then where does the company go after securing an award in the colour of the precious metal?
Answer: another gold medal.
That’s right – Pacific have secured a second Gold Award in the annual RoSPA Health and Safety Awards.
We were recognised for a second time in the recently held, internationally renowned Awards, which are the longest-running industry recognition scheme in the UK.
RoSPA Gold Award winners are deemed to have achieved a “very high level of performance, demonstrating well developed occupational health and safety management systems and culture, outstanding control of risk and very low levels of error, harm and loss”.
In July last year, Pacific was awarded its first gold gong in the RoSPA Awards which drew 2,000 entries from more than 30 countries including Singapore, Brazil, India, Botswana, UAE, Belgium, USA, Ireland and the UK.
The scheme recognises achievement in health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.
Pacific Chairman Brian Gallacher said: “This is yet another example of how we at Pacific Building strive to be the best at absolutely everything we do.
“This second award came after another 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.”
Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of awards, said: “The RoSPA Awards are no longer just an awards scheme – they have gone way beyond that as, by working with our fantastic entrants, we are driving up health and safety standards around the world, making sure more and more people leave work unharmed each and every day.”
The annual presentation ceremonies and gala dinners that traditionally take place in London, Birmingham and Glasgow were replaced this year by a single online event because of COVID.
