Top UK food company Moy Park has been named the winner of the prestigious 2015 RoSPA Food and Drink Health & Safety Award, in recognition of its outstanding and industry leading health and safety performance. The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Awards have been running for almost 60 years and are widely recognised as the ‘Oscars’ of health and safety awards across UK industry. Moy Park attributes its success to making safety its number one priority, with safety performance improving by 78% over the last three years and many of its sites having achieved over one million hours without a Lost Time Incident. Mike Mullan, Moy Park HR Director Europe said: “This was our first time to enter and it is a great honour to be recognised in the UK’s most prestigious health and safety awards. Health and safety is at the core of everything we do, with risk assessment, accident prevention and active monitoring embedded firmly into our everyday operations. To win an industry wide RoSPA award truly is an outstanding achievement for everyone - across the health and safety teams, site management, and at an individual level – as we work together to continually drive forward industry-leading health and safety standards.” David Rawlins from RoSPA said: “In making the award, judges considered Moy Park’s overarching occupational health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement. The standard of entries overall continues to improve making winning an Industry Sector award an ever greater achievement.” In addition to the overall industry sector award, Moy Park also received a MORR:Bronze award in recognition of its management of road risk.
