O’Brien Contractors is committed to providing safe and healthy working environments for all staff and clients. This has been recognised by it being awarded the Gold Royal Society for Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Award, which is the fifth year in a row the company has received this prestigious accreditation.

The O’Brien Sports management team has over 55 years’ experience in sports pitch construction and was one of the first large civil engineering firms able to offer turnkey solutions for a range of sports facilities, delivering projects ranging from stadiums and arenas through to rugby, football and hockey pitches. This capability is all maintained in house by thier team of experts who have a proven track record of delivering a diverse range of design and build sports projects to exacting client specifications.

The RoSPA Health & Safety Awards have become a key accreditation in the UK construction industry and offer firms a way to demonstrate their commitment to continually improving standards.

Managing Director, Peter O’Brien, said: “We are delighted to have been recognised with a Gold RoSPA award for the fifth year in a row. As a company we are dedicated to making sure that all of our sites are safe both for everyone working on them and for members of the public. Receiving this award again is testament to how hard we all work to achieve that.”

Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of qualifications, awards and events, said: “The RoSPA Awards are the most highly-respected in the health and safety arena, with almost 2,000 entrants every year, and allow organisations to prove excellence in the workplace, demonstrating a commitment to the wellbeing of not only employees but all those who interact with it.”

O’Brien Contractors provides ongoing training, information, supervision and advice so that all of our employees are competent to work safely and are committed to providing the resources necessary to support this provision. Our industry-leading standards have also been recognised with many other occupational health and safety accreditations ranging from OHSAS 18001 to CHAS, Achilles Building Confidence (five star rating) and Achilles RISQS.
