Caddick Construction praised for health & safety

Caddick Construction has fought off internal competition to scoop a prestigious Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) award, and a Merit honour from the British Safety Council, demonstrating its commitment to health and safety on projects delivered throughout 2022.

Throughout the year, Caddick Construction delivered a great number of high profile developments across the country. This includes the £300 million regeneration project at SOYO, New York Square in Leeds City Centre where the team on-site carried out 1 million hours of building work without a single reported incident.

Caddick Construction’s Managing Director, Paul Dodsworth commented: “Our awards are thanks to every single member of the Caddick Construction team; without their hard work and dedication our impeccable standards on site simply aren’t possible. At Caddick, we treat the safety and wellbeing of our employees, our supply chain, clients, and the public, with the utmost importance. Receiving recognition from RoSPA and the British Safety Council is very important to us; it validates the important work we do and signals best practice for our industry.”

Julia Small, RoSPA’s Achievements Director, commented: “Accidents at work and work-related ill health don’t just have huge financial implications or cause major disruption – they significantly impact an individual’s quality of life. That’s why good safety performance deserves to be recognised and rewarded.

“We are thrilled that Caddick Construction 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.”

The RoSPA Health and Safety Awards is the largest occupational health and safety awards programme in the UK. Now in its 67th year, the awards have almost 2,000 entries every year, covering nearly 50 countries and a reach of over 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.

The British Safety Council’s service is equally recognised internationally, ensuring health and safety and environmental management systems are suitable in the workplace.
