Burnt Tree was presented with the silver award for occupational health and safety at the recent Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) awards ceremony in Glasgow.

In July this year, Burnt Tree achieved its target of working one million man hours without any reportable accidents or incidents at either its Shrewsbury head office or any of its 19 branches in England, Scotland and Wales. It was in February 2012 that the last reportable incident took place at Burnt Tree.

Burnt Tree is now on the way to reaching its second target of two million accident and incident free man-hours across all the company premises.

Commenting on the award, Richard Metcalfe, chief executive of Burnt Tree, said: “The RoSPA Awards go back over 57 years and is the largest and longest running programme of its kind in the UK.

“It is pleasing that Burnt Tree’s long-term approach to effective occupational health and safety has been recognised by such an important organisation, supporting our serious commitment to accident and ill-health prevention.”
