As the UK’s family safety charity, RoSPA’s mission is to save lives and reduce injuries in all ages and stages of life. David Rawlins, RoSPA’s Awards Manager, said, “The RoSPA Awards encourage the raising of occupational health and safety standards across the board. Organisations that gain recognition for their health and safety management systems such as Northbrook College, contribute to a collective raising of the bar for other organisations to aspire to, and we offer them our congratulations.”

Simon Aston, Health & Safety Manager at Northbrook said, “We're delighted to accept this respected award for the second year running. Health & Safety depends upon consistency as much as a positive attitude and we instil both values from the top down. The RoSPA Gold Award is only given to organisations which meet strict criteria, and Northbrook College is honoured by the fact that there are only a couple of Colleges throughout the country who can boast that they have achieved this high accolade. It is a testament to our staff and students who have all played an active part in our continuing success.”
