RoSPA Awards 2022 – GOLD for the second year! 150 150 Jan O'Mahoney​

We are THRILLED to announce we have once again achieved GOLD!!

Winning Gold for the second year in a row upholds Quadratek’s position as a global leader in health and safety practice. Launched in 1956, the RoSPA Health and Safety Awards directly affect the lives of around seven million people. Organisations receiving a RoSPA Award are recognised as being world-leaders in health and safety practice. Every year, nearly 2,000 entrants vie to achieve the highest possible accolade in what is the UK’s longest-running H&S industry awards. In so doing, they form part of a vibrant community that raises standards and awareness in health and safety across the world.

Celebrating the win, Jan O’Mahoney, compliance co-ordinator at Quadratek, said: “We are delighted to have achieved Gold in the 2022 RoSPA Health and Safety Awards making this our second in a row. Whilst this does not take away from our one Bronze and four Silver Awards from previous years, we feel this clearly demonstrates how seriously we take health and safety. It is once again great news for all of us here at Quadratek. We continue to work tirelessly to keep our staff, contractors, subcontractors, and clients safe, and I’m so pleased to see our work rewarded.”

Julia Small, RoSPA’s achievements director, said: “This is a fantastic and well-deserved accomplishment. All our award entrants demonstrate their unwavering commitment and passion for keeping people safe at work. By receiving this recognition Quadratek join like-minded businesses and organisations worldwide, who represent the very best in their approach to Health and Safety. I would like to add my personal thanks for all the work that it has taken to secure this well-deserved award – congratulations to all those involved, who champion and drive up Health and Safety standards every day. You are a fantastic example to others in your sector.”
