Pall-Ex has achieved the RoSPA Silver Award for health and safety performance after focussing on the eradication of forklift truck incidents (1)

Pall-Ex has achieved a silver award from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) for health and safety performance.

The network received the bronze award in early 2021 and then spent the year making further improvements to its health and safety standards; in particular, focusing on eradicating fork lift truck incidents.

It said it set up a task force to examine accident data and introduce measures across the business that affected operational and support staff.

Kelvin Sidaway, Pall-Ex head of group QHSE and maintenance, led the taskforce and worked with the senior management team to implement the changes that led to it earning its new status.

He said: “To receive the silver award is recognition of Pall-Ex’s commitment to excellence in all areas, especially our health and safety.

“RoSPA sets the standard for safety in the UK and I am proud that everyone at Pall-Ex wants to not only meet this standard, but go far beyond it to keep everyone safe.

“We are not satisfied with where we are and we are already working on improving our safety management systems as we aim for gold next year!”
