Arya Sasol Polymer Company (ASPC) has won a prestigious Sword of Honour and Globe of Honour from the British Safety Council (BSC).
ASPC, one of the best petrochemical companies in the Middle East in terms of HSE, was one of 11 organisations worldwide which won the ‘double’, both the Sword of Honor and Globe of Honor. They are awarded to organisations that have demonstrated excellence in the management of health, safety and environmental risks.
In order to compete for the Sword of Honour and Globe of Honour, an organisation first had to achieve the maximum five stars in the British Safety Council’s health and safety and environmental management audit scheme in the period August 2016 – July 2017.
Lynda Armstrong, Chair of the British Safety Council, said: “On behalf of the board of trustees and staff of the British Safety Council I would like to congratulate ASPC on achieving the very highest standards of health, safety and environmental management. Excellence at this level is very hard won. We are proud to have supported you in your achievements, and I am delighted that you have chosen to celebrate with us today.”
Mike Robinson, Chief Executive of the British Safety Council, added: “I would like to congratulate ASPC and its staff for their huge commitment to keeping their workplace safe and healthy and minimizing risks to the environment from their organisations’ day-to-day activities.
The 2017 awards mark the 38th consecutive year that the British Safety Council has awarded the Sword of Honor for health and safety management excellence and the seventh year of awarding the Globe of Honor for excellence in environmental management.
The winners were invited to a luncheon in the City of London on November 24, 2017, celebrated and shared their success. This event was an enjoyable way to network and share experiences and knowledge about how best to keep workers safe and healthy and to ensure sustainable business practices.
