Foster Wheeler AG announced that the UK subsidiary of its Global Engineering and Construction Group has been awarded, for the sixth successive year, the prestigious Order of Distinction Award for Occupational Health and Safety by the UK’s Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA), and also its twentieth consecutive RoSPA Gold Award for outstanding health and safety performance on UK and international projects.

The Order of Distinction is RoSPA’s highest achievement award and is only presented to those companies which have attained at least 15 consecutive RoSPA Gold Awards for outstanding health and safety performance.

“We take great pride in once again receiving the prestigious RoSPA Order of Distinction Award,” said Filippo Abbà, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Foster Wheeler Energy Limited.

“This award reflects our company’s commitment to our Realizing Zero strategy designed to engender a Zero Harm safety culture and confirms that our health, safety, environmental and security (HSES) performance is underpinned by world-class systems. This latest award provides continued assurance that Foster Wheeler is truly a leader when it comes to HSES management.”

Dating back 57 years, the RoSPA 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 not only looks at accident records, but also entrants’ overarching health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.

David Rawlins, RoSPA’s awards manager, said, “RoSPA firmly believes that organisations that demonstrate commitment to continuous improvement in accident and ill health prevention deserve recognition. Foster Wheeler Energy Limited has shown that it is committed to striving for such continuous improvement and we are delighted to honour it through the presentation of an award.”

Foster Wheeler AG is a global engineering and construction company and power equipment supplier delivering technically advanced, reliable facilities and equipment. The company employs approximately 13,000 talented professionals with specialized expertise dedicated to serving its clients through one of its two primary business groups.

The company’s Global Engineering and Construction Group designs and constructs leading-edge processing facilities for the upstream oil and gas, LNG and gas-to-liquids, refining, chemicals and petrochemicals, power, minerals and metals, environmental, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology and healthcare industries.
