Manchester-based B3 Cable Solutions, a global manufacturer of copper and optical fibre cable solutions, has won its seventh consecutive Gold Medal in the annual RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards

B3 Cable Solutions will be presented with its award at a ceremony being at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel on Tuesday, May 15, 2012.

Dating back to 1956, the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Occupational Health and Safety Awards scheme is the largest and longest-running programme of its kind in the UK.

The scheme does not just look at accident records, but also entrants’ overarching health and safety management systems, including important practices such as strong leadership and workforce involvement.

David Rawlins, RoSPA’s awards manager, said: “The RoSPA Awards programme provides well-deserved recognition for the winners and spurs on other organisations to raise their standards of accident and ill health prevention.

“We congratulate B3 Cable Solutions on its success and encourage it, and all our other winners, to remain committed to safety and health, an approach that is well recognised to be good for workers and the bottom line.”

Colin Sykes, chief executive officer at B3 Cable Solutions said: “We strive to achieve the highest health and safety standards within the workplace and this award is testament to that and the continued hard work of the team.”

B3 has major manufacturing operations in the UK and Spain as well as sales and distribution facilities across Europe, the Middle East and the Far East that support a global customer base which includes BT, Telecom Italia and Telefonica.
