We are delighted to announce that City FM and City FM UK have joined CBES in winning the RoSPA Gold Health and Safety Award, an internationally recognised award for demonstrating health and safety standards.

The awards are testament to the absolute dedication of our teams to keep our people safe every single day. They also reflect our commitment to continually improving safety and compliance in support of our customers. In 2020, we carried out over 760 audits to measure health and safety compliance and provided 2,700 colleagues with technical and HSE-related training.


Mal Roberts, our Group Head of Health, Safety and Environment (UK and Europe) said:

“This is a huge achievement when you consider the amount of sites we operate in across the UK & NI, as well as the challenges our 10,000+ colleagues have faced in supporting customers and operating safely throughout the pandemic".


In addition to our RoSPA success, our cleaning teams also supported Asda in being voted the safest supermarket to shop in during the pandemic (as voted by the Grocer magazine). Stuart Wiggans, Senior Director for Compliance (Asda), said:

“Huge congratulations to you all – great result and well deserved. Thank you for helping us provide a safe place to shop and work for customers and colleagues”.
