DHL cold chain wins Safety Gold

London UK: DHL Supply Chain has won a Gold award in The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents’ (RoSPA) prestigious Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2011.

The award was for the outstanding performance of DHL Supply Chain’s Temperature Controlled Network and the company’s well-developed occupational health and safety management systems and culture, high levels of risk-control and minimal levels of error, harm and loss.

Matthew Butt, regional health and safety manager at DHL Supply Chain, says: “This is a fantastic achievement for DHL. As a leader in the logistics industry, we take the health and safety of our workers very seriously. It’s great to receive such a high level of recognition for our consistent performance and development.”

RoSPA, a safety charity, launched its awards programme 55 years ago. The scheme looks not only at accident records, but also entrants’ overarching health and safety management systems, including important practices such as strong leadership and workforce involvement.

The awards were presented at a ceremony at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel, at the National Exhibition Centre, on 19 May 2011.
