This year's awards ceremony took place at Excel, London on Tuesday, 19 June 2018. EHS Manager, Ivan Tibble accepted the award on behalf of Qualter Hall. Julia Small, RoSPA's head of qualifications, awards and events, said: 'The RoSPA Awards are the most highly-respected in the health and safety arena, with almost 2,000 entrants every year, and allow organisations to prove excellence in the workplace, demonstrating a commitment to the wellbeing of not only employees but all those who interact with it.'
2017 was particularly special for RoSPA as it marked their centenary year. As part of the celebrations, 3,500 guests gathered at Buckingham Palace for a Garden Party hosted by HRH the Duke of York and HRH Princess Eugenie during a very sunny day in May. Qualter Hall's EHS Manager Ivan Tibble and his wife were delighted to be among the guests invited to this special occasion.
