gold standard safety record, recognised by RoSPA

Our safety record is exemplary, and once again the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) has recognised our achievement with a number of awards across the sites we operate and maintain.

5th June 2018

px group has achieved more Gold Awards from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) – as well as an Order of Distinction and two Gold Medals for three sites, which have operated to the gold standard for a number of years consecutively.

This means that we’ve achieved the top gold standard at every site that was judged for a second consecutive year.

These include:

  • Teesside Gas Processing Plant, near Seal Sands,  received a coveted Order of Distinction following over two decades of exemplary health and safety performance.
  • Gold Medal Achievement Awards for both the gas fired Stallingborough Combined Heat and Power Plant, near Immingham
  • Gold Awards were for Fellside CHP, St Fergus Gas Processing Terminal, Port Talbot Biomass Power Plant and Inver Energy Fuel Terminal at Cardiff Dock
  • Five Gold Awards in five years for the group’s headquarters in Stockton

Greg Mitchinson, Director of Safety Health and Environment (SHE), Technical and Risk Management with px group, said:

“Our objective is zero harm to people, the environment and the plants we operate and our team puts an enormous effort into this, maintaining our reputation as a proactive business which continues to achieve the very highest standards.  These efforts have delivered thousands of hours of incident free work which, in turn, has again been recognised by RoSPA.”

“I’d like to thank all of the employees and contractors who work on our sites for continuing to follow our safe working practices, and for looking out for one another, in order to keep themselves and the areas in which they work, safe.”

The RoSPA Awards scheme, which receives entries from organisations around the world, recognises achievement in health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.

Julia Small, RoSPA’s Head of Qualifications, Awards and Events, said:

“The RoSPA Awards are the most highly-respected in the health and safety arena, with almost 2,000 entrants every year. They allow organisations to prove excellence in the workplace as well as demonstrating a commitment to the well-being of not only employees but all those who interact with it.”
