Active Nottingham, part of Nottingham City Council – Sport and Leisure, has fought off global competition to win a prestigious RoSPA Award, demonstrating its commitment to health and safety excellence.

Active Nottingham achieved their sixth consecutive Gold Award in the Leisure Safety category.

The esteemed RoSPA Awards program now celebrates its 68th year as the UK’s largest and most impactful health and safety programme. With almost 2,000 entries annually from over 50 countries, impacting over seven million employees, they offer a platform to spotlight an unwavering commitment to continuous improvement and excellence in health and safety.

Whether entrants seek non-competitive excellence recognition or vie for competitive awards across 32 industry sectors, the RoSPA Awards provide an unparalleled opportunity to stand among leaders shaping safer, healthier workplaces.

As of this year, the RoSPA award entry process can be used as reflective practise to contribute to continuing professional development (CPD).

Health, Safety and Training Manager for Active Nottingham, Sport and Leisure, Tom Bartley said: “Receiving this award for the sixth year in a row is truly a remarkable achievement. It is a testament to the hard work and dedication of every member of our team.

“Everyone has played a crucial role in upholding our commitment to health and safety at all six of our sites. It is a result of our collective efforts to prioritize safety above all else, and to continuously strive for excellence in this area.

“I would like to extend our gratitude to every member of our team for their hard work and dedication. This award belongs to everyone, and we will continue to work together to ensure that safety remains our top priority at all times.”

Julia Small, RoSPA’s Achievements Director, said:

Workplace accidents don’t just pose financial risks and operational disruptions; they significantly impact the quality of life for individuals. This is why acknowledging and rewarding excellent safety performance is vital.

“We congratulate Active Nottingham for winning a prestigious RoSPA Award and showing an unwavering commitment to keeping employees, clients and customers safe from accidental harm and injury.”

Sponsored by Croner-i, the RoSPA Awards scheme is the longest-running of its kind in the UK, and receives entries from organisations across the globe, making it one of the most sought-after achievement awards for the health and safety industry.
