London Luton Airport (LLA) has scooped a Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) award, demonstrating its commitment to health and safety excellence.

LLA was awarded a Silver Award in the Occupational Achievement category, demonstrating its dedication to ensuring its staff, passengers, and contractors get home safely at the end of every working day.

The RoSPA Health and Safety Awards is the largest occupational health and safety awards programme in the UK. Now in its 67th year, the awards have almost 2,000 entries every year, covering nearly 50 countries and a reach of over seven million employees. The programme recognises organisations’ commitment to continuous improvement in the prevention of accidents and ill health at work, looking at entrants’ overarching health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.

Culture of outstanding performance

Neil Thompson, Operations Director at London Luton Airport, commented: “As one of the UK’s busiest airports and the area’s biggest employer, London Luton Airport is committed to delivering a culture of outstanding performance in Health, Safety and Wellbeing. Ensuring that LLA is a safe and secure environment for airport staff, passengers and partners is our number one priority and we are delighted to receive this prestigious recognition from RoSPA. Our aim now is to continue to deliver outstanding safety values, practice and performance across our operation.”

Julia Small, RoSPA’s Achievements Director, said: “Accidents at work and work-related ill health don’t just have huge financial implications or cause major disruption – they significantly impact an individual’s quality of life. That’s why good safety performance deserves to be recognised and rewarded.

“We are thrilled that London Luton Airport has won a RoSPA Award and would like to congratulate them on showing an unwavering commitment to keeping their employees, clients and passengers safe from accidental harm and injury.”
