Birkenhead housing developer named Gold Medal winner for safety

BIRKENHEAD-based affordable housing developer and regeneration specialist Lovell is celebrating a Gold Medal winning performance in the RoSPA (the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents) Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2015.

The national safety charity has presented Lovell; which is based locally in John Street, Birkenhead; with its sought after Gold Medal award marking the company's achievement of consecutive RoSPA Gold Awards over the past 7 years. The Gold Medal recognises Lovell's outstanding safety management performance at its construction sites and offices in the North West and North Wales.

RoSPA awards manager David Rawlins says:- "The RoSPA awards encourage improvement in occupational health and safety management. Organisations that gain recognition for the health and safety management systems, such as Lovell's North West and North Wales region, contribute to raising standards overall and we congratulate them."

Lovell regional director Nigel Yates adds:- "This RoSPA award underlines the sustained expertise and hard work of our health and safety team, our staff and our subcontractor partners. Ensuring the safety and wellbeing of everyone who works with us as well of local people in the communities where we undertake projects is of the utmost importance to the company."

The Gold Medal award was presented in a ceremony at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel.
