KIDDERMINSTER, UK, Aug. 17, 2007 -- Kidderminster company Enpure is celebrating its third consecutive win in the RoSPA Occupational Health & Safety Awards.
The company scooped a Gold RoSPA Achievement Award which recognises those companies who have achieved a very high level of performance, demonstrating well developed occupational health and safety management, systems and culture, outstanding control of risk and very low levels of error, harm and loss. They add this to the Gold Achievement and Sector awards achieved over the past two years.
Increasingly, businesses large and small are being judged by the way they manage health and safety. Whether in the boardroom or in individual work teams, the ability to demonstrate consistently high standards of health and safety risk management is being seen as a hallmark of business effectiveness and professionalism.
Steve Smith, Director responsible for health and safety says, "This further award coming in our third consecutive year of gaining ROSPA recognition, is a sign of the company's commitment to Health and Safety and a measure of the good Health and Safety culture within our Staff."
Enpure fully backs the 'Working Well Together Theme' that is driven by the H & S Executive and actively promotes health and safety among all its subcontractors. It achieves this through a Working Well Together Group, consisting of 10 major contractors which review and develop health and safety systems and procedures that are mutually rewarding.
Peter Bray, SHEQ Manager said, "When done well, health and safety management protects people from risks that cause harm and suffering. In the long term there is a satisfaction that there is total belief in the welfare of everyone at work. When done badly it can lead to lack of confidence from a workforce that considers health and safety as a personal goal. Enpure have no intention of losing the confidence of our employees and work associates and will continue to strive for continual improvement at all times. The preparation and the winning of awards such as the RoSPA award is one vehicle to achieve such improvement."
Enpure (formerly Purac Ltd) is a process engineering business providing design, technologies and design and build solutions for the water and waste sectors. Based in Kidderminster in the Midlands, Enpure's 250 UK employees achieve a turnover of around £50m each year.
