Abu Dhabi-based National Petroleum Construction Company (NPCC) has been handed a prestigious award in recognition of its practices and achievements in helping its staff/customers/clients/contractors get home safely at the end of the working day.
NPCC has achieved a Gold Medal (five consecutive Golds) in the internationally-renowned RoSPA Health and Safety Awards, the longest-running industry awards scheme in the United Kingdom, said a statement from the company.
The RoSPA Awards scheme, which receives entries from organizations around the world, recognizes achievement in health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.
On the big win, CEO Engineer Ahmed Al Dhaheri said, "We are extremely proud of winning the RoSPA Gold medal after winning five consecutive RoSPA Gold Awards. It is the recognition of our commitment and dedicated efforts towards implementing a safe work culture and practicing 100 percent HSE."
The majority of the awards at RoSPA are non-competitive and mark achievements at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels, said the statement from NPCC.
Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of qualifications, awards and events, said: "These awards are the most respected in the health and safety arena, with almost 2,000 entrants every year, and allow organizations to improve excellence in the workplace, demonstrating a commitment to the wellbeing of not only employees but all those who interact with it."
Gold medals, president’s awards, orders of distinction and the Patron’s Award are presented to organizations sustaining the highest standards of the gold level over consecutive years, she added.
