A second gold for MITIE

MITIE, the strategic outsourcing and asset management company, is celebrating winning a prestigious Gold RoSPA Occupational Health & Safety Award in its cleaning and environmental business for the second year in a row. 

The RoSPA awards aren’t just about reducing the number of accidents and cases of ill-health at work but also help to ensure that businesses have good health and safety systems in place. By entering the awards, a business reinforces how seriously it takes health and safety and that it can clearly demonstrate its achievement to a high level. 

This year’s 2009 RoSPA Occupational Safety Awards Ceremonies for Achievement Award Winners will take place in May at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel and continues to be sponsored by NEBOSH (The National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health), the leading health and safety professional examining body. 

Martyn Freeman, Managing Director of MITIE’s cleaning and environmental business, said: “Good health and safety process are paramount. Winning the RoSPA award for the second time in a row proves that what we’re doing in the workplace is right and that we have the correct processes in places to look after our people. We will strive for continuous improvements in our processes and look forward to the awards ceremony in May.”

What is MITIE?
We’re the strategic outsourcing and asset management company.

What does that mean in practice? Providing everything from strategic consultancy, to world-class delivery on the ground. From long-term infrastructure planning, to facilities management, property and engineering services. Our strategic input can add value at the highest level, while our practical management expertise can save customers money and maximise their returns.

At the same time, it’s not just what we do, but how we do it that makes us different. Our people are passionate about what they do, committed to working in partnership with their clients, and will always look for a fresh answer to a new challenge.

We work with our clients in three ways; some take full advantage of our whole range of expertise by buying the whole suite, others may only need one aspect of what we do:

Strategy and consultancy

+ Facilities and project management

+ Service delivery

In other words, we think, we manage, and we deliver.

The thinking phase is all about finding strategic answers to long-term challenges about assets and resources. Facilities and project management puts those plans in place, and our unrivalled range of services is one of the best in the business.

There’s a lot more to MITIE than you probably think. We’re a big company with big ambitions - a leading FTSE 250 support services business, with 49,000+ people, revenues in excess of £1.4bn, and a reputation for being the best.
