Vaillant Industrial wins RoSPA Gold Award for health and safety achievements for the sixth consecutive year!

23rd August 2021

For the sixth year running, Vaillant Industrial has been awarded the RoSPA Gold Award and the RoSPA Gold Medal in recognition of its commitments to ensuring world-class health and safety practices at its manufacturing plant in Belper, Derbyshire.

Organisations receiving a RoSPA Award are recognised as being world leaders in health and safety practices. Every year, nearly 2,000 entrants compete to achieve the highest possible accolade in what is the UK’s longest-running health and safety industry awards.

Vaillant recently announced its expansion to the manufacturing of heat pumps in the UK, the RoSPA Gold award is a fantastic accolade to ensure health and safety is maintained to the highest standard during the expansion. Vaillant’s previous practices will be placed on the new heat pump line once it opens in 2022.

Joe Dunn, Vaillant Industrial UK, Plant Director comments, “We’re delighted to be holders of the RoSPA Gold Award for the sixth consecutive year. Here at Vaillant Industrial, we pride ourselves on the health and safety measures put in place to ensure our team's safety and welfare. With a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, we are committed to providing outstanding working conditions for our team. We are proud to have earned the internationally recognised Gold Award and Gold Medal.”

Julia Small, RoSPA’s achievements director, said: “The RoSPA Awards scheme is the longest-running of its kind in the UK, but it receives entries from organisations across the globe, making it one of the most sought-after achievement awards for health and safety worldwide.

“RoSPA is very proud of the achievements of its entrants, and with this award we recognise the best of the best, those organisations that have gone the extra mile, raising the bar for the delivery of safety in the workplace. Employees, wherever they may be should be able to go to work safe in the knowledge that they will return home unharmed and healthy at the end of every day. Our RoSPA Award winners are central to achieving this goal. By entering they are driving up standards and setting new safety benchmarks for organisations across the world. Currently, around 7million people are directly impacted by the RoSPA Awards, but the scheme’s global influence is even wider – with nearly 2000 organisations from 46 countries represented this year. I would also particularly want to thank our main sponsor NEBOSH, the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health – for their continued support for the 16th consecutive year.”
