Checkmate Fire Solutions, based strategically across the UK, has fought off stiff international competition to scoop a prestigious RoSPA Award, demonstrating huge commitment to health and safety excellence.
Checkmate is delighted to have won a Silver Award in the Industry Sector category, demonstrating its dedication to ensuring its staff, clients and contractors get home safely at the end of every working day.
The RoSPA Health and Safety Awards is the largest occupational health and safety awards programme in the UK. Now into its 67th year, the Awards have almost 2,000 entries every year, covering nearly 50 countries and a reach of over seven million employees. The programme recognises organisations’ commitment to continuous improvement in the prevention of accidents and ill health at work, looking at entrants’ overarching health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.
While most awards are non-competitive – recognising individual organisations’ achievements – competitive awards are presented in 20 industry sectors and for specialist areas of health and safety management.
Checkmate's Head of Health and Safety, Colin Campbell, said;
To receive the silver award from RoSPA for all Checkmate has achieved over the last 12 months is absolutely incredible - especially as this was our first submission. The health and safety of our staff, customers and end users is our highest priority, and we are proud to be recognised for our dedication to this. A huge thank you to everyone who was involved with getting this over the line – and an even bigger thank you to Checkmate for embracing our safety-first culture.”
Julia Small, RoSPA’s Achievements Director, said;
“Accidents at work and work-related ill health don’t just have huge financial implications or cause major disruption – they significantly impact an individual’s quality of life. That’s why good safety performance deserves to be recognised and rewarded.
“We are thrilled that Checkmate Fire has won a RoSPA Award and would like to congratulate them on showing an unwavering commitment to keeping their employees, clients and customers safe from accidental harm and injury.”
Sponsored by Croner-i, the RoSPA Awards scheme is the longest-running of its kind in the UK, and receives entries from organisations across the globe, making it one of the most sought-after achievement awards for the health and safety industry.

Passive vs. Active Fire Protection
When someone asks about your building’s fire protection system, you probably think about its alarm and sprinkler systems when, in reality, it is much more. It is a collaboration of systems between Active Fire Protection and Passive Fire Protection.
