Palletised distribution specialist Palletline has won one of RoSPAs prestigious Occupational Health & Safety Awards for 2010, underlining the organisations ongoing commitment to occupational health and safety procedures at its Birmingham hub. The RoSPA Awards are not just about reducing the number of accidents and cases of ill health at work; they are also about encouraging organisations to develop robust health and safety management programmes.
David Rawlins, RoSPAs Awards manager, said: Palletline has shown a commitment to protecting the health and well being of its employees and others. Organisations which do this deserve to have such dedication recognised, and thats where the RoSPA Awards come in. As well as there being clear ethical reasons and legal requirements for good health and safety management, there is also a strong business case. RoSPA is delighted to publicly honour organisations which have demonstrated their work to improve performance in this sphere.
Commenting for Palletline, managing director Kevin Buchanan welcomed this official recognition for Palletlines commitment to occupational health and safety. When we moved to our current premises, we structured our operational procedures around the most stringent health and safety requirements, he stated. Winning the RoSPA Award is a testimonial to the professionalism and dedication of the team here in Birmingham.

The Award will be presented to Palletline at a ceremony at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel on Thursday May 13th alongside Health & Safety Expo 2010, Europes leading health and safety exhibition.
