Greenergy's approach to safety is recognised by RoSPA Gold Awards
28th March 2014
Greenergy's Plymouth fuel terminal and biodiesel manufacturing facility at Immingham have both been awarded RoSPA Gold awards for occupational health and safety.
The awards recognise Greenergy's commitment to ensuring the highest standards of health and safety performance and management.
Andrew Owens, Greenergy Chief Executive said:
"Over the last 18 months operational responsibility for both these facility has been brought in-house. These awards recognise the continuous improvement at both sites, with the Plymouth terminal progressing from a silver award last year and our biodiesel manufacturing facility demonstrating improvement on every measure of health and safety performance.
"We're making significant infrastructure investments at the current time, so it's critically important that our approach to safety is of the highest standard."
Greenergy's approach to safety is based on detailed and open reporting and structured follow-up. Every individual working in the business is encouraged to report near misses and hazards, however small, so they can be followed up and more serious incidents prevented. Every incident is logged, investigated, tracked and resolved through dedicated central SHE management software. This information is analysed and shared throughout the company to ensure that lessons are learnt across all parts of the business.
The RoSPA Awards scheme is the largest and longest-running programme of its kind in the UK. It recognises commitment to accident and ill health prevention and is open to businesses and organisations of all types and sizes from across the UK and overseas. The scheme not only looks at accident records, but also entrants' overarching health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.
