The APC receives RoSPA Silver Award for health and safety practices

Jonathan Smith, CEO of The APC: “We’re delighted to be recognised for our health and safety practices with the achievement of the Silver RoSPA award in quick succession to our previous bronze award. Our staff are committed to achieving the highest standards of safety possible. This award reflects our commitment to improving our health and safety standards and the importance of health and safety at The APC.
Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of qualifications, awards and events, said: “The RoSPA Awards have become the key fixture in the health and safety calendar with new sponsors and new awards this year including the Leisure Safety Awards, the Safe@Work Safe@Home Award and the Inspiration Awards. Highly-respected, with almost 2,000 entrants every year, RoSPA award winners benefit from the wide-ranging rewards of improved sector reputation.”
