mydentist, the UK’s only national dental brand, has for the second year achieved the gold standard at the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2016.
mydentist, which has more than 650 dental practices in the UK, will be presented with the award during a ceremony at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole hotel 13th July.
This year the RoSPA Awards celebrates its 60th anniversary of presenting highly-regarded and sought after accolades to businesses and organisations which have shown commitment to accident and ill-health prevention.
Through the scheme, which is open to businesses and organisations of all types and sizes from across the UK and overseas, judges consider entrants’ overarching occupational health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.
Steve Williams, clinical services director of mydentist says: “We’re delighted to have been recognised again by RoSPA and awarded with its gold award.
“I am very proud to lead such a committed team of professionals and this award is a direct reflection of all their dedication, hard-work and the care each and every one of our employees takes to provide clinically excellent, safe and welcoming dentistry to our eight million patients.”
Gold awards, president’s awards and orders of distinction are presented by RoSPA to organisations sustaining the high standards of the gold level over consecutive years.
Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of awards and events, adds: “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 mydentist our congratulations.”
“This year was doubly special for our winners as their achievements were recognised as the RoSPA Awards celebrated its diamond anniversary, which is a ringing endorsement of the thousands of businesses and organisations that have committed to continuous improvement in accident and ill-health prevention.”
Headline sponsors of the RoSPA Awards 2016 is NEBOSH - the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health - for the 11th consecutive year.
