TSMarine Scoops Top Safety Award For Third Year Running

Aberdeen-based marine and subsea support specialist TSMarine (Contracting) Ltd has scored a hat-trick after winning the prestigious International Safety Award for the third year in a row.

TSMarine lifted the British Safety Council's esteemed International Safety Award following a gruelling assessment procedure set by an independent adjudicating panel.

Only companies with accident rates below the industry average are eligible to apply and winners have to demonstrate an array of impressive safety policies as well as a firm commitment to continually improving corporate health and safety year on year.

This is the third consecutive year TSMarine has won the award and company representatives will be invited to celebrate their success with other winners from across the country on May 16, at a ceremony at London's prestigious Grosvenor House Hotel in Park Lane, London.

Alasdair Cowie, CEO of TSMarine, said: "I am delighted we have been recognised for our outstanding safety record for the third year running. Winning the International Safety Award re-affirms TS Marine's commitment to excellence in creating a positive health and safety culture for all our employees. This award is testimony to the fact that we promote the highest standards of Health, Safety, Environment and Quality (HSEQ) management throughout all of our working practices both onshore and offshore globally.

"This is a great boost for staff morale and I would like to thank everyone at TSMarine for all their continued hard work and dedication."

The award is recognised by the Health and Safety Executive as a powerful motivator for achieving high safety standards.

Prime Minister Gordon Brown also added his support, saying, "I am delighted to send my congratulations to all of those organisations being presented with an award by the British Safety Council. These awards recognise the crucial success that these organisations and their employees have achieved in their pursuit of excellence in the management of health, safety and environmental matters at an international level."
