HEART of England Co-op has won a 2005 ROSPA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents) Gold Award for excellence in occupational health & safety performance.

The Award reflects the high standards of health & safety at work maintained by Heart of England Co-op at its 60 locations in Coventry, Warwickshire and south Leicestershire over the past four years, and marks a significant achievement by the employer of over 1,000 local staff.

"Heart of England Co-op is committed to improving health & safety for all persons affected by its business and I am delighted our hard work has been recognised by the leading authority dedicated to workplace safety issues," said Ali Kurji, the Society&#039s Chief Executive.

"The Award recognises the tangible efforts we have made in recent years to develop and enhance our health & safety management systems and I wish to pay tribute to all those employees whose efforts have made this possible."

ROSPA started its occupational health & safety performance award scheme back in 1956 and it has developed over the years to become recognised as a key indicator of high standards of health & safety at work. The Award aims to motivate improvements to health & safety performance in the workplace, promote good practice and recognise those that maintain a high level of performance over a number of years.
