Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group has achieved the Order of Distinction from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) for winning 15 consecutive Gold awards.

Alistair McPhee, CEO of Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group, commented: “Our continued success reflects how seriously we take health and safety at Marshall. We have strong ‘one team’ culture and each and every employee has a role to play in improving safety. I am thrilled that our business has been presented with this prestigious award as it demonstrates our continued commitment to health and safety.”
Julia Small, RoSPA’s Head of Awards and Avents at RoSPA, commented: “The RoSPA Awards are the most prestigious in the world of occupational health and safety, and held in high regard around the world, as winning one demonstrates an organisation’s commitment to maintaining an excellent health and safety record. Achieving the standard required is no mean feat. This is a special year in the history of RoSPA, and we congratulate all of our winners in this, our centenary year”.
Gold medals, president’s awards and orders of distinction are presented to organisations sustaining the high standards of the gold level over consecutive years.
