Foster Wheeler AG announced that Foster Wheeler Energy Limited (FWEL), the UK subsidiary of its Global Engineering and Construction Group, has achieved two prestigious Five-Star ratings from the British Safety Council (BSC) in connection with its environmental and health and safety management systems.

The Five-Star Environmental Audit rating follows a BSC review of the overall environmental management systems and associated arrangements of FWEL’s operation in Middlesbrough, Teesside, in northeast England. Organizations are rated from one to five, five being the top rating. FWEL achieved a five-star rating, with an overall audited score of 92.3 percent.

The Five-Star Occupational Health and Safety Management System Audit rating follows a BSC review of the overall health and safety management system of FWEL’s operation in Reading, UK. FWEL’s Reading Office achieved a five-star rating, with a world-class overall audited score of 96.6 percent.

“These Five Star ratings demonstrate the importance we place on our environmental and health and safety management systems,” said Roberto Penno, Chief Executive Officer, Foster Wheeler Global Engineering & Construction Group. “We are especially pleased with the score for our health and safety management system, which we have designed to underpin a zero-harm culture.”

The BSC’s Five-Star rating is an internationally recognized audit system used by leading organizations to benchmark performance against current best practice
