NHS teams maintain their gold standard
19th award of the year
Staff from NHS Lanarkshire’s West of Scotland Laundry (WoSL), hotel and maintenance services have struck gold once again.
The hard-working teams won another Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) award in recognition of the work they do to promote health and safety.
The gold category prize means the departments have now collectively won 19 awards – all retaining celebrated gold status – this year.
Collectively, the departments employ nearly 1000 staff, delivering laundry and linen services to NHS Lanarkshire and other health boards and domestic, catering, portering, transport, switchboard, help desk, maintenance and grounds services across the region.
Alison Jamieson, deputy head of linen services, said: “We are absolutely delighted that our commitment to health and safety has been recognised by RoSPA yet again.
“Working together with our colleagues in Salus, we thrive on setting and achieving high standards and are committed to protecting the health and wellbeing of all our employees. The WoSL staff are extremely proud of this achievement”.
June Levick, head of hotel services, added: “Continuing to achieve this level of recognition is due to the hard work and commitment our staff deliver every day and the great support of Salus and partnership in all that we do to promote safety in the workplace.”
The gold award marks “a very high level of performance, demonstrating well-developed occupational health and safety management systems and culture, outstanding control of risk and very low levels of error, harm and loss”.
In great health NHS Lanarkshire’s teams celebrate with their RoSPA gold award honour
