WASTE management firm Yorwaste has received a gold award in the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents awards.

The accolade is in recognition of the firm’s excellent health and safety management standards, forward-thinking employee engagement and commitment to embedding occupational health and safety into the culture of the business.

The poster campaign was launched with a series of one-day safety workshops, where staff were given pocket cards to allow them to stop check the guidelines on-the-go.

Peter Frankish, Yorwaste head of risk management said: “Achieving awards, such as this, demonstrates our commitment to embedding a positive health and safety culture throughout the entire business.”
