UK: Paradigm Wins Gold RoSPA Award
Paradigm Flow Services has won the Gold Award for Safety from Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) in recognition of its approach to the prevention of accidents and ill health.
The Inverurie-based firm will be presented with the prestigious accolade at the Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2012 on September 20.
The RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards scheme is the largest and longest-running programme of its kind in the UK. Securing the Gold Award underlines Paradigm’s commitment to health and safety.
Rob Bain, managing director of Paradigm Flow Services, said: “It is an honour to win the highest level RoSPA award and achieving the Gold standard is something we are very proud of at Paradigm. Health and safety is core to our business and we work tirelessly to ensure we mitigate risk and create a safe and healthy working environment for our employees. We are very pleased that we have measured up to the stringent RoSPA criteria.”
The scheme not only analyses accident records, but also entrants’ overarching health and safety management systems, including important practices such as strong leadership and workforce involvement.
David Rawlins, awards manager at RoSPA, said: “The RoSPA Awards programme provides well-deserved recognition for the winners and spurs on other organisations to raise their standards of accident and ill health prevention. We congratulate Paradigm Flow Services on its success and encourage it, and all our other winners, to remain committed to safety and health, an approach that is well recognised to be good for workers and the bottom line.”
Paradigm’s Gold RoSPA Award follows other recent success, such as securing the internationally recognised BS OHSAS 18001 standard for occupational health and safety management systems for risk management, and having ISO accreditations renewed for quality, 9001, and environmental, 14001.
Paradigm Flow Services was launched in 2010 and has developed groundbreaking technologies for detecting, remediating and preventing subsea and topside blockages. The firm now has 27 staff with plans for further recruitment as demand for services continues to grow.
