Leading international oilfield services company, Expro, has been presented with a fourth President’s Award at RoSPA’s (Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents) Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2017 – building on 12 consecutive years of awards from this key industry organisation.
The company has been recognised by RoSPA every year since 2005, receiving four oil and gas sector awards from 2006 to 2009, the Gold Medal in 2010, and the Scotland Trophy in 2013.
This latest accolade is presented to organisations that sustain the highest standards of health and safety management over consecutive years. It recognises Expro’s continued success in safety, including the introduction of a Champion Safety campaign in 2015, which focuses on improving the company’s safety culture - ensuring it is at the forefront of every project, process and activity.
The award, now in its 61st year, considers entrants’ overarching occupational health and safety performance and management, including practices such as leadership and workforce engagement.
David Ford, Expro’s Group HSEQ Manager, commented:
“Winning the RoSPA award again this year highlights our continued commitment to health and safety excellence. Our company values and behaviours include Champion Safety, which drives a programme of activity through our employees and ensures we maintain this at the heart of our business.
“Irrespective of challenging market conditions, we have achieved a number of important safety milestones across the organisation in the past year. This accolade is thanks to everyone’s contribution in maintaining a focus on this business critical area.”
Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of awards and events, said:
“The RoSPA Awards are the most prestigious in the world of occupational health and safety, and held in high regard around the world, as winning one demonstrates an organisation’s commitment to maintaining an excellent health and safety record. Achieving the standard required is no mean feat.
“This is a special year in the history of RoSPA, and we congratulate all of our winners in this, our centenary year”.
