SQA achieved the Gold award in the prestigious RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2016, run by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents.
 
The RoSPA Awards is celebrating 60 years of presenting highly-regarded and sought after accolades to businesses and organisations which have shown commitment to accident and ill-health prevention.

Allan Dunbar, SQA’s Health, Safety and Environmental Officer, was presented with the award by Errol Taylor, RoSPA Deputy Chief Executive/Strategic Partnerships Director, during a ceremony in Glasgow, which marked the diamond anniversary of RoSPA.

After collecting the award, Allan said: “I’m delighted to accept this award on behalf of everyone at SQA.  Across both our sites, in Glasgow, and in Dalkeith, our primary focus is the safety of our staff and visitors.  We work to maintain a secure environment for everyone, and the RoSPA Gold award recognises our consistency and commitment.”

Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of awards and events, said: “To win an award at such a highly-regarded event as the RoSPA Awards is a great achievement for our winners. It recognises their commitment to maintaining an excellent health and safety record and raises the bar for other organisations to aspire to. We offer them our congratulations.”
 
Gold medals, president’s awards and orders of distinction are presented to organisations sustaining the high standards of the gold level over consecutive years. 

There are specialist awards for occupational health, environmental management and fleet safety, and excellence trophies for the best international, new entry, workforce involvement and organisation operating or based in Scotland. RoSPA’s top accolade is the Sir George Earle Trophy.
