Posted by admin / 03.04.2020 / Latest News

At a time where health and safety is of the utmost priority City, one of the world’s largest privately owned facilities management companies, has been recognised in this years’ Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) awards.

Two of City’s subsidiary companies achieved awards for their outstanding commitment to safeguarding employees, with City FM Ltd celebrating success in receiving a gold award for the sixth consecutive year and the fleet safety award for the third year running.

City Building Engineering Services (CBES) was awarded the President’s Award for achieving an outstanding 13 consecutive gold awards and the fleet safety award for the seventh consecutive year.

Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of qualifications, awards and events, said:

The RoSPA Awards scheme is the longest running of its kind in the UK, but it receives entries from organisations around the world, making it one of the most sought-after global accolades in health and safety. 

“RoSPA wants every employee, wherever they are, to work safe in the knowledge that they will be going home unharmed and healthy at the end of every day. The RoSPA Award winners are vital to help achieve this goal, as by entering they are driving up standards and setting new benchmarks for organisations everywhere. Currently, around 7million people are directly impacted by the RoSPA Awards, but the scheme’s influence is even wider.” 

With more than 10,000 City colleagues currently working to deliver key services to help keep retail stores clean, safe and well maintained during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, our approach to health and safety has never been more prevalent.

Duncan McNicol, head of risk and compliance for CBES and City FM Ltd said:

“We are immensely proud of our colleagues and the commitment and dedication that they have shown not only during the COVID-19 outbreak, but also in their overall approach to health and safety.

“It is fantastic to be recognised in these prestigious awards, however we cannot become complacent and with safety at the heart of the City family values, we will continually strive to improve on health and safety processes, engagement within our teams and driving innovation in safety.”
