Expro Wins Fourth Successive RoSPA Industry Safety Award

Leading international oilfield service company Expro has reinforced its commitment to world-class safety performance by winning the Oil & Gas industry sector award from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents for the fourth year in succession.

Expro received the accolade after demonstrating outstanding safety performance across its business globally, including the best statistical safety performance over the past five years, excellent health and safety processes, and innovation in the training and development of employees.

In 2006, Expro became the first service company to receive the honor. Since then, the company's commitment to maintaining the highest health and safety standards saw it retain the award in 2007 and 2008, with this year's award making it four in a row for Expro.

The award was presented at a ceremony, hosted by RoSPA president Lord Jordan of Bourneville, at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel, on May 12.

This significant achievement marks the latest milestone in Expro's Excellence in Operations program, which has the delivery of outstanding safety performance, service quality and customer care at its heart.

Expro's group HSEQ manager, David Ford, who received the award, said, "Winning this award for the fourth year in a row is a fantastic achievement. It speaks volumes for our global health and safety performance and procedures and could only have been achieved with the dedication and hard work of our people.

"Health and safety is integral to our business. We all recognize the importance of maintaining a safe working environment, and through buy-in and commitment across the company, we have integrated safe, sound and sustainable working practices which are adopted by all."

Expro's Chief Executive Officer Gavin Prise said, "At Expro, our commitment to keeping our people and our workplaces safe is absolute. Excellence in Operations has driven safety and quality across our business and everyone in Expro appreciates the need to 'make it personal' every day when it comes to the delivery of operational excellence.

"We are delighted that this commitment has again been recognized by RoSPA and I congratulate the Expro team across our global network for their focus and determination to maintain such world-leading safety performance."

David Rawlins, RoSPA awards manager, said, "Expro has shown a commitment to protecting the health and well-being of its employees and others. Winning a RoSPA Award reinforces the message that good health and safety is good for business and clearly demonstrates an organization’s dedication to improving performance in this crucial area."
