Waltham Abbey-based Roof-Link has achieved the Order of Distinction award in the annual scheme run by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).

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.

Roof-Link joint managing director, Michael Hockley, said: “We are delighted to have achieved the RoSPA Order of Distinction. Health and safety is of the utmost importance to all of us at Roof-Link and to have our efforts recognised through winning this award is a tribute to the hard work of our entire team.”

Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of awards and events, 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.”

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