Continental Tyre Group, which is based in West Drayton and manufactures the Conti Urban HA3 bus tyre, is celebrating after landing an award for demonstrating high health and safety standards. The company received a RoSPA Gold Health and Safety Award for its work to ensure its staff are safe at work.

The RoSPA award recognises organisations which are pro-active in health and safety practice; every year, nearly 2,000 entrants vie to achieve the accolade in what is said to be the UK’s longest-running H&S industry awards.

Stewart Jackson, Supply Chain Director at Continental, said: “Continental is immensely proud to receive the RoSPA Gold Award, building on our silver accreditation awarded last year. Health and safety practices are integral to all areas of Continental’s operations, so adhering to the guidelines set out by RoSPA is something that everyone at Continental takes incredibly seriously. We share our success not only within the Continental family, but alongside our fellow award winners who strive to maximise safety in the workplace.”

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 Continental Tyre Group joins like-minded businesses and organisations worldwide, which 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.”
