Six Prestigious Safety Awards for EMCOR UK

Company News

Leading facilities management provider EMCOR UK has recently been presented with six top safety awards from two of the UK’s most prestigious safety organisations, RoSPA (the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents) and the British Safety Council, recognising the company for its significant focus on health and safety management.

 

EMCOR UK received a Gold Medal Award in RoSPA’s 2017 annual scheme, recognising the company for achieving a very high level of performance, demonstrating well developed occupational health and safety management systems and culture, outstanding control of risk, and very low levels of error, harm and loss.

 

RoSPA also presented EMCOR UK with four additional awards for its work with its customers, recognising its commitment to keeping employees safe at work, and continuing to maintain an excellent health and safety record. A Gold Medal Award was presented for work with BAE Systems and PHE Porton Down. A Gold Award was presented for work with United Utilities and Thames Water.

 

Furthermore, EMCOR UK received a 2017 International Safety Award from the British Safety Council, in recognition of the company’s high standard of health and safety management.

 

These recent safety awards are in addition to the 33 awards EMCOR UK has been presented in the last 15 years, recognising the company’s continuing excellence in this area.

 

David Parker, Group Executive Director, EMCOR UK said:

“We are very proud to have again been recognised by RoSPA and the British Safety Council as a leader in health and safety with three Gold Medal Awards, two Gold Awards and an International Safety Award. These awards are a validation of our approach which is founded upon excellent planning, extensive employee training and communication programmes and rigorous analysis of our risk management processes across all of our operations.”

 

Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of awards and events, said:

“The RoSPA Awards are the most prestigious in the area of occupational health and safety, and are held in high regard around the world. Winning an award demonstrates an organisation’s commitment to maintaining an excellent health and safety record. Achieving the high standard required is no mean feat.”
