Foster Wheeler AG (Nasdaq: FWLT) announced today that the UK subsidiary of its Global Engineering and Construction Group has been awarded, for the seventh 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). The award will be presented during a ceremony in London on 17 June.

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. Foster Wheeler has received twenty-one consecutive RoSPA Gold Awards.

“We take great pride in once again receiving this prestigious RoSPA Order of Distinction,” said Roberto Penno, Chief Executive Officer, Foster Wheeler Global Engineering and Construction Group.

“This award reflects our company’s commitment to our Realizing Zero strategy designed to engender a Zero Harm safety culture. It also confirms that our health, safety, environmental and security (HSES) performance is underpinned by world-class systems implemented by an engaged and committed workforce. While this latest award provides assurance that Foster Wheeler is truly a leader when it comes to HSES management, it also helps to drive continuous improvement.”

A UK safety charity, RoSPA’s mission over the last 97 years has been to save lives and reduce injuries, both in and out of work, across all ages and stages of life. In support of this mission, the RoSPA Awards, which date back 58 years, recognize commitment to continuous improvement in accident and ill health prevention at work. Through the scheme, which is open to businesses and organizations of all types and sizes from across the UK and overseas, judges consider entrants’ overarching occupational health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.

David Rawlins, Awards Manager, RoSPA, said, “The RoSPA Awards encourage the raising of occupational health and safety standards across the board. Organizations that gain recognition for their health and safety management systems, such as Foster Wheeler Energy Limited, contribute to a collective raising of the bar for other organizations to aspire to, and we offer them our congratulations.”
