Foster Wheeler In The UK Wins British Safety Council’s Sword Of Honour And Globe Of Honour

Stocks in this article: FWLT

Foster Wheeler AG (Nasdaq: FWLT) announced today that the UK subsidiary of its Global Engineering and Construction Group has been recognized by the British Safety Council with two awards, the Sword of Honour for health and safety management excellence and the Globe of Honour for environmental management excellence.

Foster Wheeler was one of 80 organizations world-wide presented with a British Safety Council Sword of Honour and one of six organizations who won the “double” – the Sword of Honour and the Globe of Honour.

The winners of the Sword of Honour have all been recognized by the British Safety Council as having exemplary health and safety systems that are among the best in the world. In order to compete for the Sword of Honour, organizations must have achieved the maximum rating in the British Safety Council’s five star health and safety management system audit at specific locations. They must also have demonstrated to an independent adjudication panel a culture of best practice for health and safety throughout the business – from the boardroom to the shop floor.

The Globe of Honour award scheme was launched in 2010 to recognize exemplary environmental management. The winners have completed the British Safety Council’s five star environmental audit, and in so doing have demonstrated that they go beyond compliance and strive for best practice in all areas of environmental management.

“These awards confirm that Foster Wheeler’s health, safety and environmental (HSE) performance is underpinned by world-class systems. This in-depth review of our systems and HSE culture by the British Safety Council provides assurance to our stakeholders that Foster Wheeler is truly a leader when it comes to HSE management,” said Filippo Abbà, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Foster Wheeler Energy Limited.
