VPS UK Ltd receives RoSPA Gold Award for health and safety achievements

RoSPA Gold Award

VPS, the UK-wide spe­cial­ist prop­er­ty and peo­ple secu­ri­ty ser­vices firm, is cel­e­brat­ing after land­ing an inter­na­tion­al­ly recog­nised award for demon­strat­ing high health and safe­ty standards.

VPS has received a RoSPA Gold Health and Safe­ty Award 2021, one of the most glob­al­ly sought-after achieve­ment awards. The Roy­al Soci­ety for the Pre­ven­tion of Acci­dents (RoSPA) receives near­ly 2,000 entries every year, vying to achieve the high­est pos­si­ble acco­lade in what is the UK’s longest-run­ning H&S indus­try awards.

Dar­ron Cavanagh, Chief Oper­at­ing Offi­cer for the VPS Group, said. Our staff have always strived to set new safe­ty stan­dards and bench­marks so that they, our cus­tomers and our sup­pli­ers can be assured that our oper­a­tions are con­duct­ed at the high­est lev­els of safe­ty. Many secu­ri­ty firms will cut cor­ners when it comes to safe­ty, but VPS will not, and I am proud my col­leagues have been recog­nised by RoSPA, and their main spon­sor, NEBOSH, the Nation­al Exam­i­na­tion Board in Occu­pa­tion­al Safe­ty and Health.”

Julia Small, RoSPA’s achieve­ments direc­tor, said: This award recog­nis­es the best of the best, those organ­i­sa­tions that have gone the extra mile, rais­ing the bar for the deliv­ery of safe­ty in the workplace.” 

Our clients select VPS because of our Intel­li­gent Triple Pro­tec­tion propo­si­tion, our expe­ri­ence and abil­i­ty to rec­om­mend the best fit-for-pur­pose secu­ri­ty solu­tions. RoSPA’s recog­ni­tion of our safe­ty stan­dards backs up our mar­ket-lead­ing posi­tion.” added Mr Cavanagh.

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.
