Waste Recycling Group was awarded the Golden Accolade for Occupational
Health and Safety by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).
Created 55 years ago, this prestigious award is recognized nationally and inter-

safety management schemes are verifed, as well as aspects such as strong
leadership and workforce involvement. The award is divided into three catego-

WRG has a deeply rooted culture of occupational risk prevention and is rightly
proud of its efforts to implement appropriate procedures to ensure compliance
with their high standards.
This is great news and everyone should be congratulated.
