Barchester Healthcare is celebrating after landing two internationally-recognised awards for demonstrating high health and safety standards. Barchester has received both a RoSPA Health and Safety Healthcare Sector Winner for working hard to ensure its staff, residents, patients and visitors are safe, and an award for being a Finalist in the Sir George Earle Trophy which honours the strongest entrants from among the Industry Sector winners demonstrating the best health and safety performance during 2021.
Organisations receiving a RoSPA Award are recognised as being world-leaders in health and safety practice. Every year, nearly 2,000 entrants vie to achieve the highest possible accolade in what is the UK’s longest-running H&S industry awards.
Dr Pete Calveley CEO of Barchester Healthcare said: “The health and safety of our residents and staff is paramount at Barchester, and our staff work tirelessly to achieve the best hygiene and infection control standards possible. I am delighted to accept these awards on behalf of all the brilliant people who make up Barchester and who have gone above and beyond to deliver the most excellent care, in the most difficult of circumstances over the past two years.”
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 Barchester join 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.”
