Published: 31 March 2023

GMG’s commitment to health and safety excellence has once again been recognised. 

We are pleased to announce the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) has awarded GMG with the internationally renowned Order of Distinction Award in construction.

The award comes after GMG received 15 consecutive gold awards from RoSPA, along with the 2022 President’s Award, in recognition of our top-class workplace safety.

Gerry McGinn, CEO of GMG Contractors Ltd, said: “Safety will always come first with GMG. Health and safety considerations are weaved into all our business decisions for the protection of our workforce, contractors and the public. Everyone has the right to make it home after a day at work and we are committed to achieving a workplace that is free from injuries and work-related illness.

“We are honoured to have been recognised by RoSPA for the 15th year in a row. This award recognises our long-standing commitment to the health and safety in all sections of our business and communities.”

Now in its 67th year, the RoSPA Awards receive almost 2,000 entries annually from around 50 countries and reach more than seven million employees. The programme recognises organisations’ commitment to continuous improvement in the prevention of accidents and ill health at work, looking at entrants’ overarching health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.

Julia Small, RoSPA’s Achievements Director, said: “We are thrilled that GMG Contractors Ltd has won a RoSPA Award and would like to congratulate them on showing an unwavering commitment to keeping their employees, clients and customers safe from accidental harm and injury.”GMG is committed to the continued development of our employees to ensure they remain fully aware and competent in their health and safety responsibilities.

Independent safety consultants carry out rigorous audits and internal training programmes to keep the GMG workforce aware of the latest regulations and safe working practices.
