By Lindsay Gale03 June 2009
The UK's Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) has awarded an Occupational Health and Safety Gold Award 2009 to Walton on Thames-based General Demolition.
RoSPA awards manager David Rawlins said: "General Demolition 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."
General has also gained a second gold award, this time given by the City of London's Considerate Contractor Scheme judging panel for its overall performance during work it carried out on the former north wing of Unilever House, close to Blackfriars Bridge in central London. This is the company's second such award in three years.
According to senior projects manager Tom Henry, who led the General Demolition team on the job: "We are extremely proud to have won another Gold Award. It recognises that we consistently exceeded the requirements of the City of London's Code of Good Practice, carrying out our operations in a safe and considerate manner. It also reflects a spirit of pride in our work, an awareness of the passing public and due regard for the surrounding environment."
General Demolition has also taken a Gold Sponsorship slot for the Little Britain sailing regatta for the UK construction industry (for further information go to www.littlebritain.co.uk).
