Foster Wheeler Energy Limited has won the Five Star Health and Safety Management System Audit Award from the British Safety Council
Foster Wheeler Energy Limited (FWEL) a subsidiary of its Global Engineering and Construction Group, has won the Five Star Health and Safety Management System Audit Award from the British Safety Council for the performance of FWEL’s UK-headquartered operation in Reading.
The award follows a Five Star audit, in which the British Safety Council reviewed the health and safety performance of FWEL’s Reading home office operation.
The British Safety Council Audit, encompassing the management of health and safety through to the implementation of associated systems in the workplace, results in an overall numerical score, or star rating, of the organisation’s performance. Organizations are rated from one to five, five being the top rating — to indicate the effectiveness of their health and safety programs. FWEL’s Reading operation achieved a five-star rating, with a world-class audit score of 93 percent.
“I am proud to see that the British Safety Council has recognized our commitment to health and safety,” said Umberto della Sala, Chief Operating Officer of Foster Wheeler AG. “The British Safety Council rightly focuses on not only systems and performance but on an organization’s commitment to continuous improvement — a commitment that is shared by everyone at Foster Wheeler — senior management and staff alike.”
The British Safety Council Five Star Audit is used by organisations world-wide to benchmark their health and safety management system against health and safety best practice.
