8th RoSPA Gold Award

23 May 2017

Lanes Group plc has won a RoSPA Gold Health and Safety Award for the 8th year in a row. The achievement means the UK's largest independent drainage and wastewater maintenance specialist retains its RoSPA Gold Medal, awarded for achieving multiple consecutive RoSPA Gold Awards. 

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents annual award scheme, now in its 61st year, is one of the most rigorous and prestigious tests of health and safety in the UK. 

Lanes Group MD Wayne Earnshaw said: "To win the RoSPA Gold Award each year, we have to demonstrate continuous improvement. This is one aspect of this latest win that is most pleasing. Retaining our RoSPA Gold Medal tells our customers and the wider public that we set high standards, yet we are constantly striving to do better. I would like to thank all our teams across the Lanes family for their contribution to this success. 

"It shows our strategy of safeguarding and improving the health, wellbeing and safety of our staff, our customers and the thousands of other people we meet while doing our work every day is robust and fit for purpose." 

Lanes is due to receive its RoSPA Gold award during a ceremony at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole hotel on Thursday, July 13, 2017.
