Multiplex Construction Europe Ltd – RHSC & DCN was named as the Scotland Trophy winner in this year’s RoSPA Health and Safety Awards. 

It was awarded the trophy for the safety of its employees and others on its construction of the new Royal Hospital for Sick Children and Department of Clinical Neurosciences in Edinburgh.

The Scotland Trophy is awarded each year to the top RoSPA Awards entrant that is based or operating in Scotland. The hospital project was also highly commended in the Construction Commercial Industry Sector of the awards scheme.

Well-developed safety management system

Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of qualifications, awards and events, said: “The awards assessors noted an excellent, all-round high-quality submission from the hospital project, which evidenced a well-developed safety management system that is implemented very effectively.

“Everyone at RoSPA would like to congratulate the team at Multiplex working on the project, in achieving one of our top awards.”

Multiplex specialises in undertaking the role of principal contractor on large complex construction projects. It has particular expertise in the construction of high-rise buildings and the health sector.

Running for 61 years, the awards programme, which is sponsored by NEBOSH (the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health), is the largest and longest-running occupational health and safety awards programme in the UK.

It recognises organisations’ commitment to continuous improvement in the prevention of accidents and ill health at work. It assesses entrants’ overarching health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.
