Our team at the Perry Barr Residential Scheme in Birmingham are celebrating after being awarded the RoSPA Gold Award for demonstrating consistently high health and safety standards.

Organisations receiving a RoSPA Award are recognised as being world-leaders in health and safety practice. Every year, nearly 2,000 entrants vie to achieve the highest possible accolade in what is the UK’s longest-running H&S industry awards.

Matt Statham, EHS Lead, UK Regions, Lendlease, said: “This award is justly deserved because of everything our team does each day to ensure the right values and behaviours from all our stakeholders to leave a lasting legacy. Our client, Birmingham City Council is delighted to receive such excellent news and I am proud to be part of this team.”

Ian MacLeod, Director of Planning, Transport & Sustainability, Birmingham City Council, said: “I am delighted that Lendlease have received this award which reflects their commitment to the highest standard of health and safety. The development is making a significant contribution to the City’s housing need and is also creating new employment and training opportunities for the local community.”

Julia Small, RoSPA’s Achievements Director, said: “This is a fantastic and well-deserved accomplishment. All our award entrants demonstrate their unwavering commitment and passion for keeping people safe at work. By receiving this recognition Lendlease join like-minded businesses and organisations worldwide, who represent the very best in their approach to Health and Safety. I would like to add my personal thanks for all the work that it has taken to secure this well-deserved award – congratulations to all those involved, who champion and drive up Health and Safety standards every day. You are a fantastic example to others in your sector.”
