BT and CityFibre Scoop 2024 RoSPA Awards for Health and Safety

1st place cup broadband award

Telecoms and broadband giants CityFibre and BT have both scooped up wins at this year’s annual Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Awards 2024 event. CityFibre secured the Gold Achievement Award for its third consecutive year (four if you include lower awards) and BT won the Industry Sector Award for ‘Information & Communication’.

The RoSPA states that winners of the Gold Achievement Awardhave achieved a very high level of performance, demonstrating well developed occupational health and safety management systems and culture, outstanding control of risk and very low levels of error, harm and loss.” We also note that Digital Infrastructure (BeFibre) won the same award, although they’ve now merged into FullFibre Ltd (here).

Meanwhile, winners of the industry Information & Communication award “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.”

Sarah Parsons, Director of Compliance at CityFibre, said:

“To secure this important award over four consecutive years is a great honour, and testament to the commitment of our team and the wider SHiFT Group.

We continue to work diligently with our partners to improve health and safety standards within our industry, and, as our rollout expands, this responsibility grows. Everywhere we go, we strive to protect the communities we operate in, by ensuring our work is fulfilled while maintaining the safety of our staff and the public.”

A number of civil engineering firms, which do some telecoms and fibre building work too, were also listed at this year’s event. In fact quite a lot of awards, across multiple categories, were given out and so it’s possible that we might have overlooked the odd other winner from the UK telecoms industry.
