International oilfield services company Expro has been awarded the Scotland Trophy at the RoSPA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents) Health and Safety Awards and has been recognised with an Order of Distinction for 16 consecutive gold awards.
The Scotland Trophy recognises the company that has demonstrated the highest standard of health and safety management and performance of all participating companies based in or operating in Scotland, across all industry sectors.
Expro has shown commitment towards the continual improvement and raising of health and safety standards through outstanding service quality and safety initiatives. This has been supported through its team of more than 100 HSEQ specialists, who have also driven environmental improvements and health and wellbeing programs that have led to the company’s strong safety culture.
The importance of health and safety is at the core of all activities, at all levels of the business, in all corners of the world, through 1,268 management led regional safety engagement sessions and Expro holding four global webcasts streamed to all 4,300 staff across 47 countries.
Stuart Paterson, Expro’s Global HSE and Service Quality Director, comments, “We pride ourselves on having exemplary health and safety standards across all of our services and capabilities, in every region we operate in. The strong safety culture that we have cultivated, encouraged and equipped with our entire workforce is testament to the excellent work done by all to champion safety at every opportunity.”
“We are genuinely proud of achieving these industry accolades for our efforts and standards and we look forward to continuing to set the bar as high as possible for health and safety across the globe,” Paterson adds.
Commenting on the award announcement, Alistair Geddes, Chief Operating Officer says, “Following many years of RoSPA accolades, we are honoured to receive this prestigious award. This momentous achievement recognises every one of Expro’s employees, across the globe, for their outstanding dedication towards safety and safe working practices in accordance with our champion safety culture.”
Expro has been recognised by RoSPA every year since 2005, including four Oil and Gas Sector awards, the Gold Medal in 2010, the Scotland Trophy in 2013, and has received the President’s Award every year since 2014.
