Expro Wins Second RoSPA Safety Accolade

Expro International Group has won a second prestigious RoSPA Oil, Gas and Water Industry sector award for occupational health and safety.

More than 500 people from a diverse range of industries attended the event to see the company collect its trophy. It follows Expro's first success in the competition in 2005 when it won a RoSPA health and safety Gold Award for its global health and safety performance.

The presentation was made by Lord Jordan of Bournville, Deputy President of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents, at the Hilton Hotel in Glasgow on Thursday, September 28th.

Roger Bibbings, RoSPA occupational safety adviser said: "A second prize for Expro, in such a tough category, is a major achievement and is testament to the company's dedication and outstanding performance in improving health and safety across its global operations. The company and each of its employees are ambassadors in the industry and I hope they will be a shining example to others in the sector."

Expro Group HSEQC Manager Jim McQueenie said: "It's an honor to receive our second award from RoSPA which is an extremely influential and respected organisation and is recognised nationally and internationally. The award is for our global performance and as such acknowledges the company's commitment to health and safety and the hard work that all our staff, many of whom work in extremely harsh environments, have done to push barriers for better safety performance.

"We invest heavily in safety training, competence and facilities and over the past five years have achieved an 80% reduction in lost time injury frequency."
