Fugro Survey Limited Celebrates Success in the RoSPA Awards 2012
24 August 2012Fugro Survey Limited, Aberdeen, has been recognised for its excellent approach to the prevention of accidents and ill health in the RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2012.
The Order of Distinction is the highest merit of continuous HSE performance excellence as it is only awarded after 15 consecutive Gold awards are achieved. The award will be presented at a ceremony and gala dinner at the Hilton Glasgow on Thursday, 20th September 2012.
Dating back to 1956, the RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards scheme is the largest and longest-running programme of its kind in the UK. It recognises commitment to accident and ill health prevention and is open to businesses and organisations of all types and sizes from across the UK and overseas. The scheme does not just look at accident records, but also entrants’ overarching health and safety management systems, including important practices such as strong leadership and workforce involvement.
David Rawlins, awards manager at the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA), a safety charity with a 95-year history, said: "The RoSPA Awards programme provides well-deserved recognition for the winners and spurs on other organisations to raise their standards of accident and ill health prevention. We congratulate Fugro Survey Limited on its success and encourage it, and all our other winners, to remain committed to safety and health, an approach that is well recognised to be good for workers and the bottom line.”

Organisations maintaining high standards can win gold medals, president’s awards and orders of distinction.
