Wishaw Press - - CLEANING UP - Ross Thom­son

Staff within NHS La­nark­shire’s West of Scot­land Laun­dry (WOSL), ho­tel and main­te­nance ser­vices team have struck gold.

The team have won an­other ROSPA gold award in recog­ni­tion of the work they do to pro­mote health and safety.

The de­part­ments have now col­lec­tively won 19 awards, all re­tain­ing cel­e­brated gold sta­tus again this year.

The teams won the award at the pres­ti­gious Royal So­ci­ety for the Preven­tion of Ac­ci­dents (ROSPA) Oc­cu­pa­tional Health and Safety Awards in recog­ni­tion of their ap­proach to the preven­tion of ac­ci­dents and ill-health.

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.”

Col­lec­tively, the de­part­ments em­ploy nearly 1,000 staff, de­liv­er­ing laun­dry and linen ser­vices to NHS La­nark­shire and other health boards.

The de­part­ments also cover do­mes­tic, cater­ing, por­ter­ing, trans­port, switch­board, helpdesk, main­te­nance and grounds ser­vices across NHS La­nark­shire.

John Pater­son, di­rec­tor of prop­erty and sup­port ser­vices divi­sion ( PSSD), added his con­grat­u­la­tions to all of the laun­dry team.

“To se­cure gold stan­dard at all is a con­sid­er­able achieve­ment for PSSD,” said John.

“Con­grat­u­la­tions to all those whose hard work is un­der­lined by this achieve­ment. It’s a tes­ta­ment to the team­work of the staff.”
