Sustainable Services Through Sustainable Practices: Our Gold Standard

21st April 2019

Prestigious UK membership organisation, The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) has once again awarded Lucion Services Gold for both Fleet and Health and Safety performance in 2018.

Operating for over 100 years, RoSPA  plays a fundamental role in UK health and safety. In both personal and occupational life, RoSPA campaigns for the implementation of best safety practices, encouraging continuous change and development in current safety management systems.

Providing a multitude of support, resources and training to individuals and organisations, RoSPA offers reassurance to clients that suppliers who hold RoSPA awards have evidenced effective health and safety practices throughout their business.

RoSPA Health & Safety Awards

The annual RoSPA Health and Safety awards offer organisations the opportunity to demonstrate continuous commitment to not only sustaining but developing their health and safety practices.

Lucion Services can proudly announce that we have been re-awarded our two Gold prestigious, internationally recognised, awards from RoSPA for our outstanding health and safety practices.

What Is Involved In RoSPA Submissions?

RoSPA submissions require a lot of time dedication and out of the box thinking. They should not be underestimated or mistaken as a simple audit conducted by an external company. RoSPA submissions are an extensively detailed submission detailing how an organisation continually improves its health and safety standards and procedures year on year.

Here at Lucion, we want all organisations to champion their health and safety practices and champion the individuals within their organisation to help continuously improve their health and safety practices. We believe in knowledge sharing and want to share with you, our clients and regular blog readers, an insight into what it takes to achieve and maintain our Gold standard (beyond the very late nights and countless hours of writing).

RoSPA submissions involve responding to various questions relating to how, as an organisation, we manage:

  • Safety Leadership
  • Workforce Engagement
  • Active Monitoring
  • Accident Investigation
  • Performance Reviews across the Group

Working with the Chief Risk Officer, the Assurance Team and our esteemed writers, we collate information and use our best examples of health and safety management, practices and innovation that we have implemented during the past year.

As well as including our assurance metrics data, internal training and auditing practices, we also include our homegrown innovative health and safety initiative, Take Care Be Aware (TCBA). Our TCBA initiative works on a two-way feedback system. All team members are encouraged to submit observations, suggestions for improvements, near misses and accidents that are reviewed and educate the development of our health and safety practices.

Health And Safety Award: Gold

Due to the continued development of our internal engagement and communication strategy, we have seen continued year on year decreases in the number of accidents/incidents throughout the company.

Developing our communication methods and investing in effective engagement with our team members has altered our health and safety culture within the organisation. We are proud to say that we are a team lead organisation whereby improvements and development in our health and safety policies, procedures and practices are heavily influenced by our team member’s TCBA observation submissions.

The development of our health and safety practices and investment into improving our engagement with team members has been fundamental to upholding our RoSPA Gold Health and Safety award.

What It Takes To Achieve Gold

RoSPA submissions take a collective effort from multiple stakeholders and around 3-4 weeks to complete including; drafting responses, revisions and collating all the evidence.

Achieving Gold is imperative for our organisation as it demonstrates to both current and potential clients and the industry, that our approach to managing safety, health and wellbeing is continually improving and that our we are a supplier of trusted sustainable asbestos and risk management services.

Kevin Watts, Lucion Services Bids Coordinator, commented:

“RoSPA is a great thing to be involved in as we highlight our innovative and progressive safety practices within the Lucion group. By working collaboratively with Ross Boulton (Chief Risk Officer), Lucy Hughes (Communications Director) and Chris Parr (Assurance Director) we find areas that we can improve on going forward, helping with policy and procedure development and ultimately improving safeguarding for our Teams and clients.” Kevin Watts, Bids Coordinator.
