Vauxhall earned yet another award during the 60th annual RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2016.
“To win an award at such a highly-regarded event as the RoSPA Awards is a great achievement for our winners, recognizing their commitment to maintaining an excellent health and safety record,” said Julia Small, RoSPA’s Head of Awards and Events. “This year is a special one as the RoSPA Awards celebrates its diamond anniversary. The longevity of the awards is a ringing endorsement of the thousands of businesses and organizations that have committed to continuous improvement in accident and ill-health prevention.”
The award will be presented during the diamond anniversary awards ceremony at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole hotel on July 13, and recognizes the Luton assembly plant for its excellence in safety. Simply put, the plant earned the award because it was able to demonstrate excellent health and safety management systems and performance.
“We have had an outstanding start to the year and have won awards in numerous sectors for our cars and vans. Now our manufacturing facility in Luton has been recognized for its outstanding health and safety record,” said Rory Harvey, Vauxhall’s Chairman and Managing Director. “Our team at the Luton plant works hard to ensure they work to the highest safety standards and we are pleased that this has been acknowledged by RoSPA, with the team achieving the highest level of award.”
In addition to receiving this award, Vauxhall also becomes the number one van maker for the 14th year in a row. The Luton plant built over 60,000 vans last year, nearly half of which were the Vivaro.
