Selwood Housing Group awarded Silver RoSPA award for second year running

Selwood Housing Group, based in Trowbridge, Wiltshire has been handed a prestigious award in recognition of its high performance in health and safety, including tackling stress related absence in the workplace, for the second year.

Fee Nunn, head of health, safety and facilities at Selwood Housing Group, shares:

"We constantly review what we do to try and achieve best practice in health, safety and wellbeing, so it's fantastic to be recognised in this way by RoSPA. Over the last three years we've worked particularly hard supporting staff mental health and wellbeing, perhaps not commonly thought of in the context of accident prevention. However good mental health is key in creating safer, healthier workplaces."

We detail more about our approach in our news release from last year, detailed below:

Selwood Housing Group awarded Silver at RoSPA awards ceremony

Selwood Housing Group, based in Trowbridge, Wiltshire has been handed a prestigious award in recognition of its high performance in health and safety, including tackling stress related absence in the workplace.

At an awards evening that took place on Thursday 6 June 2019, the local housing group was handed a Silver in the internationally recognised RoSPA Health and Safety Awards, the longest-running industry awards scheme in the UK.

Fee Nunn, head of health, safety and facilities at Selwood Housing Group, shares:

"In 2016/17 we became increasingly aware of a steady rise in the number of days off employees were taking due to stress related issues. Working with all parts of the business, including Silcoa, our repairs and planned maintenance company, we put in place an initiative to halt this rise, whilst also focusing on impacting the longer-term culture of the organisation. The results have been very successful, with a 95% reduction in stress related absence in a year-on-year comparison between August 2017 and August 2018.

"The initiative for improving mental health is just a small part of what we do as an organisation. This award is testament to the hard work and commitment of all our employees, who all play a role in keeping each other and customers safe and well."
