To complement internal practices, the company has an on-going programme aimed at educating customers about new health and safety legislation and how to meet the latest operational guidelines from the Health & Safety Executive.
David Rawlins, RoSPA awards manager, said, "A-Plant has shown a commitment to protecting the health and well-being of its employees and others. Entering the RoSPA Awards reinforces the message that good health and safety is good for business, and clearly demonstrates an organisation's dedication to improving performance in this crucial area."
The award will be presented at a ceremony at the Birmingham Hilton Metropole Hotel, at the National Exhibition Centre (NEC), during Safety & Health Expo 2009, being held at the NEC from 12-14 May.
