Three M Group Services businesses had cause to celebrate at the 2017 Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Occupational Health & Safety Awards in Birmingham on July 12, 2017.

Morrison Utility Services

Morrison Utility Services, the UK’s largest, dedicated, independent utility service provider, was recognised for its commitment to continuous improvement in accident and ill health prevention in the workplace with the RoSPA Industry Sector Award.

Morrison Utility Services Safety, Health, Environmental and Quality Director, Paul Kerridge comments: “Over the past 12 months we have launched a number of major safety initiatives that have been designed and developed to drive and deliver outstanding health and safety values, practices and performance across our organisation and on behalf of our clients. Safety continues to be the number one priority for Morrison Utility Services and we are delighted to receive this recognition from RoSPA. Moving forward, we fully recognise that there can be no room for complacency and our aim is to build on the progress that we continue to make in the area of health and wellbeing.”

Dyer & Butler

Dyer & Butler, a specialist engineering service provider to transport infrastructure asset owners including airports, underground, rail and highways, was presented with the President’s Award for its 12th consecutive RoSPA Gold Award. Gold Medals were also presented to Dyer & Butler’s rail division and Dyer & Butler Electrical Ltd. In addition, President’s Awards were presented to Dyer & Butler’s airport teams in conjunction with clients, Heathrow Airport Ltd and Gatwick Airport Ltd.

Neil Edwards, Managing Director of Dyer & Butler, commented: “The award of our third RoSPA Presidents Award, which follows 12 consecutive gold awards, together with our lowest ever AFR rate and the increased volume of close calls, is testament to the commitment of all of our employees to remain safe by choice … not by chance.”

M Group Services Plant & Fleet Solutions

M Group Services Plant & Fleet Solutions received the RoSPA Gold Award for Fleet Safety.

Jeremy Harrison, Director of M Group Services Plant & Fleet Solutions (formerly Morrison Plant & Fleet Services) commented: “We are delighted to receive this recognition from RoSPA for our commitment to fleet and driver safety. Our in-house road-risk and green fleet team manages in excess of 5,000, drivers and vehicles and 14,000 items of plant and equipment across all M Group Services businesses which include Morrison Utility Services, Morrison Data Services and Dyer & Butler. This award is testament to our focus on safety and we will continue to look to innovate in key areas such as vehicle safety systems, driving analysis, coaching and training.”

Julia Small, RoSPA’s Head of Awards, said: “The RoSPA Awards are the most prestigious in the world of occupational health and safety, and held in high regard around the world, as winning one demonstrates an organisation’s commitment to maintaining an excellent health and safety record. Achieving the standard required is no mean feat. This is a special year in the history of RoSPA, and we congratulate all of our winners in this, our centenary year”.

Through the RoSPA Awards 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.
