Andover’s Chantry Centre has achieved a Gold Medal (6 consecutive Golds) in the internationally-renowned RoSPA Health and Safety Awards, the longest-running industry awards scheme in the UK.

They will be presented with the award during a ceremony at ExCeL, London on Tuesday, June 19, 2018.

The RoSPA Awards scheme, which receives entries from organisations around the world, recognises achievement in health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.

We take health and safety very seriously at the Chantry Centre,” says Steve Cotney, Centre Manager.

It is even more satisfying when this recognition achieves a Gold Medal Award.

What makes receiving this accolade even more special is that this is the sixth consecutive year that we have received a Gold Award in recognition of our effort and this is down to the excellent team that works in the Centre who make sure that our health and safety standards consistently are kept at a very high level.”

Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of qualifications, awards and events, said “The RoSPA Awards are the most highly-respected in the health and safety arena, with almost 2,000 entrants every year, and allow organisations to prove excellence in the workplace, demonstrating a commitment to the wellbeing of not only employees but all those who interact with it.”

The majority of awards are non-competitive and mark achievement at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels. Gold medals, president’s awards, orders of distinction and the Patron’s Award are presented to organisations sustaining the high standards of the gold level over consecutive years.
