Dubai, United Arab Emirates, … April 2017

Gold winner at the RoSPA Health and Safety Awards 2017

Ecolog, with headquarters in Dubai and current presence in 22 countries, has been awarded, at its first attempt, the Gold award in the prestigious annual scheme run by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).

Ecolog, a turnkey provider of support services has an integrated HSE footprint in all its contracts in over 150 locations, which drives the company to continuously develop its HSE programs, promote safety, the prevention of accidents and improve safety performance.

Ecolog will be presented with the award during annual ceremony at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole hotel on Thursday, July 13, 2017. The award was achieved during a special year for family-safety charity RoSPA, as it celebrates its centenary.

Through the RoSPA Awards scheme, which is open to businesses and organisations 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. The awards are now in its 61st year.

Employee training and awareness are key in such a successful implementation. Mr. Roy Griffin, Vice President Q&S at Ecolog, explains: “HSE starts with leadership, from active involvement of the CEO, to all levels of the leadership teams. It sets the highest level of good practice within the various areas of responsibility. The commitment in developing a HSE culture, together with a Generative Organization, have a strong bearing on actual behavior and performance of our people. At Ecolog we work together to make it culturally unacceptable when safety rules are broken.”

Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of awards and events, said: “The RoSPA Awards are the most prestigious in the world of occupational health and safety, and held in high regard around the world, as winning one demonstrates an organisation’s commitment to maintaining an excellent health and safety record. Achieving the standard required is no mean feat. This is a special year in the history of RoSPA, and we congratulate all of our winners in this, our centenary year”.

The majority of awards are non-competitive and mark achievement at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels. Gold medals, president’s awards and orders of distinction are presented to organisations sustaining the high standards of the gold level over consecutive years.

Competitive awards go to the best entries in 24 industry sectors including construction, healthcare, transport and logistics, engineering, manufacturing and education.
