Moy Park recognised for commitment to health and safety

Leading European poultry producer Moy Park has been awarded with two 2016 Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Occupational Health and Safety Awards. 

The Northern Irish firm was presented with the overall Food and Drink Health & Safety Award for the second consecutive year for its dedication to health and safety performance, as well as winning a Gold Award for Fleet Safety.

Now in its 60th year, the awards are designed to recognise businesses and organisations that demonstrate an industry-leading commitment to health and safety, and accident prevention.

“It’s a great honour to be named the UK’s leading food and drink company for outstanding occupational health and safety performance for the second year in a row, and to receive a Fleet Safety Gold Award in recognition of our excellence in managing road risk,” commented Mike Mullan, Moy Park executive director.

“The safety of our people is a number one priority at Moy Park with risk assessment, accident prevention and monitoring embedded in our teams and at an individual level in all our operations. We are delighted that our health and safety performance is worthy to be recognised once again and we will continue to work together to drive our industry-leading safety practices.”

Many of Moy Park’s sites have achieved more than one million hours without a lost time incident, with its Anwick site reaching three million hours since its last lost time incident.

“To win an award at such a highly-regarded event as the RoSPA Awards is a great achievement for Moy Park,” added Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of awards and events.

“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.”
