Mental health specialist, Pathways Northwest, has been recognised for having an outstanding level of health and safety in its care homes.
The company has been shortlisted for a prestigious award for commitment to workplace health, safety and welfare.
Presented by Peninsula, the leading provider of employment law and health and safety services in the UK, the award recognises the efforts of the business with the most outstanding commitment to Health and Safety.
Around 25,000 businesses have integrated Peninsula as part of their HR and Health and Safety departments.
Each year Peninsula receives feedback from Health and Safety Consultants about the level of commitment to Health and Safety, observed when they inspect their clients’ premises.
The winner will be decided upon in the next two weeks and the award will be presented at the end of July.

“The vulnerable nature of many service users with complex mental health needs means our staff members must play a particularly active and important role in safeguarding and improving safety.
“We work hard to continuously deliver quality and safety improvements in our care homes.”
Pathways Northwest, a specialist resource offering a recovery programme to people with complex mental health needs, is committed to providing a safe environment for its service users.
