RoSPA’s mission is to save lives, reduce injuries and lead the way on accident prevention. Through the scheme, which is open to businesses and organisations of all types and 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.

Compass’ executive dining division, Restaurant Associates, education business Chartwells, healthcare specialist Medirest, business and industry experts Eurest and Instore, a division of Eurest with expertise in restaurant and cafe food services for retailers, have all achieved a gold award. Compass Group Northern Ireland was also awarded the gold accolade. Furthermore, ESS Defence and Government Services received a Commended in the Hotel and Catering Industry Sector Award – an even higher accolade than the prestigious gold award. 

Chris Williams, HSE Director at Compass Group UK & Ireland, commented: “That we’ve won so many gold medals and achieved a Commended Sector award proves that Health and Safety really is our number one priority. Our colleagues, customers and clients’ safety is at the forefront of our business and it’s fantastic that our businesses have been recognised in this way.” 

David Rawlins, RoSPA’s Awards Manager, said: “The RoSPA Awards encourage the raising of occupational health and safety standards across the board. Organisations that gain recognition for their health and safety management systems, such as Compass Group UK & Ireland, contribute to a collective raising of the bar for other organisations to aspire to, and we offer them our congratulations.”
