London/United Kingdom – The British branch of the Swiss based engineering company has further won its nineteenth consecutive RoSPA Gold Award.

Recognising Safety and Security Measures
Dating back to 1956, the RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards scheme is the largest and longest-running program of its kind in the UK. It recognizes commitment to accident and ill-health prevention and is open to businesses and organizations of all types and sizes from across the UK and overseas. The goal of the organisation is not only to look at accident records, but also to recognise overarching health and safety management systems, including measures such as strong leadership and workforce involvement.
“Remain Committed to Safety”
David Rawlins, Awards Manager at RoSPA said: "The RoSPA Awards program provides well-deserved recognition for the winners and spurs on other organizations to raise their standards of accident and ill health prevention. We congratulate Foster Wheeler Energy on its success and encourage it, and all our other winners, to remain committed to safety and health, an approach that is well recognized to be good for workers and the bottom line."
