B&M Waste Services has been successful in the 60th year of the RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2016.
The company, based in Wirral, achieved the Silver award in the prestigious annual scheme run by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).
The RoSPA Awards is celebrating 60 years of presenting highly-regarded and sought after accolades to businesses and organisations which have shown commitment to accident and ill-health prevention.

Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of awards and events, said: “To win an award at such a highly-regarded event as the RoSPA Awards is a great achievement for our winners. It recognises their commitment to maintaining an excellent health and safety record and raises the bar for other organisations to aspire to. We offer them our congratulations.
“This year was doubly special for our winners as their achievements were recognised as the RoSPA Awards celebrated its diamond anniversary, which is a ringing endorsement of the thousands of businesses and organisations that have committed to continuous improvement in accident and ill-health prevention.”
Mick Ashall, Director at B&M Waste Services said: “We are very proud of our achievements and grateful for the recognition this award presents. The health and safety of our staff and the general public are of great importance and will continue to be while we as a business further ourselves. We pride ourselves on utilising the latest in vehicle safety equipment and occupational health and safety techniques to ensure all staff members are safe and happy in the workplace. ”
