Commenting on the centre’s success, Jonathan Bunting, CEO for Smiths News, said:

“A RoSPA Award is a well-recognised accolade that highlights a company’s efforts towards promoting workplace safety. Health and safety is something we take very seriously and the fact that the Smiths News Nottingham team has managed to retain the Gold Award for a third consecutive year is a testament to that.

“I’m incredibly proud of the team’s hard work and ongoing commitment to ensuring they promote the highest levels of safety and employee care.”
