Ashby-de-la-Zouch, UK, 2 September, 2016 – CEVA Logistics, one of the world’s largest supply chain management companies has won five Gold Awards from RoSPA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents) this year for its occupational health and safety performance at locations around the UK.

This is the third year running CEVA has demonstrated that both in its own right and when working with a customer, it has exceeded health and safety performance when assessed against a strict judging criteria. In addition to awards for the company, CEVA’s Danielle Welsh won a RoSPA Guardian Angel Award for her initiative, diligence, enthusiasm and commitment to accident prevention at the Crown Paints site based in Hull.

All of the awards won were RoSPA Gold Awards which are presented to organizations sustaining the highest standards over consecutive years. The scheme is open to companies of all sizes from across the UK and overseas.  Judges consider entrants' overarching occupational health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.

CEVA won its five company Gold Awards for:

  • Its Aberdeen oil and gas logistics facility at Echt
  • Its CEVA Showfreight operation
  • Working in partnership with its customer British Gypsum at Kirkby Thore
  • Working in partnership with its customer Crown Paints at Hull
  • Working in partnership with its customer Princes Foods at Salters Yard, Wisbech

Danielle Welsh won her individual award for her work between 2012 and 2015 when she suggested credible solutions to address potential safety issues at CEVA’s Hull site.  All her ideas have since been implemented and today she continues to work as the site office administrator, has been elected as the site's safety rep and has recently finished studying for her IOSH (Institute of Occupational Safety and Health) qualification.

"Our teams throughout the UK have really excelled in 2016 to achieve these five awards," states Michael O'Donoghue, CEVA's Executive Vice President UK, Ireland and Nordics. "We take health and safety very seriously and achieving this level of recognition with RoSPA shows our level of commitment and dedication to creating a safe environment for our employees and for those members of the public whom we come into contact with. We are also very proud to have such an enterprising young person such as Danielle Welsh on our team.  Her ideas and dedication to the safety of her colleagues has changed the safety culture at a building where the constant application of the correct standards is essential."

In 2016, the RoSPA Awards celebrate 60 years of presenting highly-regarded and sought after accolades to businesses and organizations which have shown ongoing commitment to accident and ill-health prevention.  Julia Small, RoSPA's head of Awards and Events commented: "To receive an award at such a highly regarded event is a great achievement for our winners.  It recognizes their commitment to maintaining an excellent health and safety record and raises the bar for other organizations to aspire to.  We offer them our congratulations".
