Global Marine Systems has been honoured with a President's Award after being awarded eleven consecutive Gold Awards by RoSPA (The Royal Society of Prevention for Accidents). As the largest independent provider of submarine cable installation, maintenance and related engineering services worldwide, Global Marine Systems is committed to delivering strong occupational health and safety management systems across its business.
The RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2010 are sponsored by The National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health (NEBOSH), the leading health and safety professional examining body. The awards programme encourages organisations to develop health and safety management systems as well as reducing the number of accidents and cases of ill-health at work.
"Safety is paramount to Global Marine's operating philosophy and it is always first on our agenda," said John Golding, operations director of Global Marine Systems. "We've developed our safety management system significantly over the last few years and measure the company's ability to respond quickly and correctly to any potential accident, right down to putting a plaster on a finger. Our strong reputation is built on 160 years of quality service and reliability and we are proud to receive this recognition that we have one of the best safety records in the industry."
Stephen Johnston and Mike Symons from Global Marine Systems received the award on behalf of the company at a formal awards presentation with other industry leaders on 22nd September 2010 in Glasgow, Scotland.
