Calderdale College receives Patron’s Award after 26 years of commitment to health and safety achievements

Calderdale College has achieved its 26th internationally-recognised award for demonstrating high health and safety standards.

After securing bronze, silver and gold awards for the last 25 years, the college has received its first Patron’s Award from The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents.

The Patron’s Award is the highest certification available and shows the hard work done within the college to ensure college staff get home safely to their families at the end of every working day.

Organisations receiving a RoSPA Award are recognised as being world-leaders in health and safety practice. Every year, nearly 2,000 businesses enter to achieve the highest possible accolade in the UK’s longest-running Health & Safety industry awards.

Ray Newell, Health and Safety Manager at Calderdale College, said: “We are delighted with this achievement and it is with the help and co-operation of colleagues that we continue to perform to such a high standard.”

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 Calderdale College joins 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.”
