Moores gets RoSPA award for Manufacturing Industry Sector

Moores has won the prestigious Manufacturing Industry Sector Award from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).

Moores was announced as the winner of the manufacturing industry sector at an exclusive ceremony held on Wednesday 4th July at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel. The company received an engraved Salver which will proudly sit alongside 17 previous Awards from RoSPA at its headquarters in Wetherby.


Steve Parkin, CEO of Moores comments: “The RoSPA Manufacturing Industry Sector Award is recognition of the hard work and dedication of all our employees at Moores Furniture Group.  Employee engagement is the key to Moores’ success in driving health and safety excellence forward today and in the future. The RoSPA sector awards scheme provides Moores with the opportunity to demonstrate how collaboration, personal responsibility and simplification of process, through continuous improvement, reduces risk and prevents harm. Winning the Manufacturing Industry Sector Award is a significant milestone in our Health and Safety Journey and one that we are extremely proud to have achieved.”

This is not the first award Moores has won for Health and Safety. The Manufacturing Industry Sector award follows the company’s 2017 accolade from RoSPA for ‘Order of Distinction’ after its 16 years of consecutive Health and Safety Awards from the society.

RoSPA exists to save lives and reduce injuries from preventable accidents in the workplace. In 1993 the society introduced individual sector awards to be presented annually for the most outstanding performance in health and safety by a company or organisation within an industry or sector.

Entrants must be able to demonstrate a robust and high-quality safety management system together with a minimum of four years' consistently excellent or continuously improving health and safety performance.
