Palletline Crowned with RoSPA Transport, Storage and Distribution Best in Sector Award


Birmingham based Palletline has scooped RoSPA’s top industry award at a prestigious ceremony held on 6 June 2019 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole, just around the corner from the firm’s national hub.

The RoSPA Awards scheme, which receives entries from organisations around the world, recognises achievement in health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.

Palletline Ltd achieved Winner of the Transport, Storage & Distribution Industry Sector in the internationally-renowned RoSPA Health and Safety Awards, the longest-running industry awards scheme in the UK.

Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of qualifications, awards and events, said: “The RoSPA Awards have become the key fixture in the health and safety calendar with new sponsors and new awards this year including the Leisure Safety Awards, the [email protected] [email protected] Award and the Inspiration Awards. Highly-respected, with almost 2,000 entrants every year, RoSPA award winners benefit from the wide-ranging rewards of improved sector reputation.”

Richard Gutsell, Operations Director of Palletline commented, “we have won many accolades during our 27-year history, which have previously included a number of RoSPA Gold awards, however this latest award goes to show that not only is our group-wide safety-first policy continuing to pay day-to-day dividends, it is also recognised across the transport sector and by the leading authority on safety, RoSPA. I am extremely proud of our highly professional teams across the UK for which this sector award aptly celebrates their achievement”.

The majority of awards are non-competitive and mark achievement at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels. Gold medals, president’s awards, orders of distinction and the Patron’s Award are presented to organisations sustaining the high standards of the gold level over consecutive years.

Ken Bell, Palletline’s Health and Safety Manager collecting the award added, “We work tirelessly at Palletline to ensure health and safety is at the heart of everything we do. Achieving the top industry award is an amazing feat and is testament to the benefit of managing safety to the benefit of all our employees and customers”.

Competitive awards go to the best entries in 24 industry sectors including construction, healthcare, transport and logistics, engineering, manufacturing and education.

There are specialist awards for health at work, environmental management and fleet safety, and excellence trophies for the best international, new entry, workforce involvement and organisation operating or based in Scotland. RoSPA’s top accolade is the Sir George Earle Trophy.
