Their enviable reputation for quality and service is backed up by a strong emphasis on health and safety.

Dating back 57 years, the RoSPA Awards scheme is the largest and longest-running programme of its kind in the UK. It recognises commitment to accident and ill health prevention and is open to businesses and organisations of all types and sizes from across the UK and overseas. The scheme not only looks at accident records but also entrants’ overarching health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.

Commenting on the awards, Dean De Beer, Tristar Worldwide’s CEO said: “We are delighted that our commitment to health and safety has been recognised in these two prestigious awards. From the latest technology to driver training, delivering a safe and secure experience for our clients is at the very top of our priorities.”

Tristar Worldwide has shown that it is committed to striving for such continuous improvement and we are delighted to honour it through the presentation of an award.”
