Aramark has secured a sixteenth consecutive RoSPA Gold Award for Occupational Health and Safety meaning the company has also been awarded the 2015 RoSPA Order of Distinction for health and safety best practice.
RoSPA, the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents, presents the accolade to organisations with an outstanding and consistent performance in health and safety over a prolonged period of time. Only companies with at least 15 consecutive annual Gold Awards qualify, making this the second time that Aramark has received the Order of Distinction.
Based in Dyce, Aberdeen, Aramark’s offshore team provides hotel, catering and facilities management services to remote sites - including oil, gas and drilling platforms, and accommodation support vessels - off the coasts of Aberdeen, Great Yarmouth, Blackpool and Hull. Overseas it serves coasts off Denmark and the Middle East.
Andrew Thomson, Managing Director, Aramark Offshore North Sea, says: “The unique conditions on oil rigs or gas platforms demand an exemplary approach to safety management. We are the only company in our sector to have been awarded the Order of Distinction and that speaks volumes about our approach to service delivery in offshore environments.
“This is excellent recognition for our extremely hard-working teams. We will never be complacent and will seek to build on our commitment to health and safety over the coming years.”
Now 59 years in operation, the RoSPA Awards scheme is the largest and longest-running programme of its kind in the UK.
