By Laura Hatton07 August 2013
Industrial crane and lifting equipment manufacturer Konecranes has received a silver award in the UK's Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents 2013 Occupational Health and Safety Awards.
The award recognised the company’s commitment to preventing accidents and ill health.
Pat Campbell, director of market area West Europe, said, “The ROSPA Awards are extremely well supported by a host of major UK and overseas companies and are internationally acclaimed for acknowledging success within the field of health and safety. Not surprisingly, we are understandably delighted to have once again received recognition for our ongoing and often pioneering work within what is an increasingly important part of the overall business.”
UK health, safety, environmental and quality manger Dave Harvey said, “With the UK already holding the Konecranes Global Corporate Safety Award across the 48 worldwide territories where it has a presence, we shall look to use our latest success at the ROSPA Occupational Health & Safety Awards to reaffirm our rigorous stance towards delivering effective and workable health and safety management systems and methodologies that benefit each and every Konecranes employee."
“Since 2007 we have seen a year-on-year downward trend in accident occurrence, despite introducing greater transparency to accident reporting systems. This is something that we shall understandably look to build on.”
