Leicester-based manufacturer secures top prize

Michael Smith Switchgear has won a prestigious RoSPA Award for the eighth consecutive year – demonstrating a commitment to health and safety.

The Gold Medal Award from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) is an internationally-recognised prize, judged by a team of health and safety professionals.

The standard demonstrates the Leicester-based manufacturer’s continuing commitment to excellence in its performance, policies, and procedures.

Managing Director Sean Smith said: “Keeping our teams safe is always the priority for us, so I’m proud that our ongoing commitment has been recognised with an eighth consecutive award.

“The fact that we’ve been awarded gold again shows how important it is for us to create a safe and modern working environment for our people.”

The RoSPA Awards is the UK’s largest health and safety programme. With almost 2,000 entries annually from over 50 countries, impacting over seven million employees, the programme offers a platform to those who demonstrate unwavering commitment to continuous improvement and excellence in health and safety.

Julia Small, RoSPA’s Achievements Director, said: “Workplace accidents don’t just pose financial risks and operational disruptions; they significantly impact the quality of life for individuals. This is why acknowledging and rewarding excellent safety performance is vital.

“Michael Smith Switchgear has again proved its unwavering commitment to keeping employees, clients and customers safe from accidental harm and injury.”
