Bells Food Group Limited has achieved a Gold in the internationally-renowned RoSPA Health and Safety Awards, the longest-running industry awards scheme in the UK. They will be presented with the award during a ceremony at DoubleTree by Hilton Glasgow Central on Thursday, September 12, 2019.

Ronnie Miles, Managing Director of Bells stated:
“It is an honour to achieve the top award in recognition of our commitment and dedication to Health & Safety , achieving GOLD is a reflection of our strong safety culture, robust working practices and our drive for continuous improvement. Chris Brannan our Health & Safety Officer deserves special recognition for his unrelenting hard work and commitment to making Bells Food Group a safe place to work.”
Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of qualifications, awards and events, said:
“The RoSPA Awards have become the key fixture in the health and safety calendar with new sponsors and new awards this year including the Leisure Safety Awards, the Safe@Work Safe@Home Award and the Inspiration Awards. Highly-respected, with almost 2,000 entrants every year, RoSPA award winners benefit from the wide-ranging rewards of improved sector reputation.”
