Stadco secures back to back wins at prestigious industry awards
Stadco, the leading international supplier of body-in-white products and services to the automotive industry, has once again won the regional award for health and safety at the Employers Engineering Federation (EEF)/Aldermore Future Manufacturing Awards.
This is the second consecutive year that Stadco has been recognised at the awards, picking up the Health and Safety award in 2014 previously. The company was selected by a panel of judges drawn from business leaders, industry experts and academics and was up against stiff competition from a range of businesses, small and large, from across the Midlands. Stadco will now go on to find out if it has won the national titles at a gala dinner in London in January.
The Health and Safety Award celebrates the achievements of manufacturing businesses that have achieved improvements in the health and safety culture of their workplace. One example of Stadco’s commitment to health and safety is its behavioural safety training programme which every employee in the business has undertaken. Stadco has significantly reduced accident rates year-on-year since 2011, and in turn reduced days lost as a result of injury by 90 per cent. Despite this strong performance, Stadco is continuing to strive to become a zero-harm employer.
Simon Randall, Head of Environment (Health and Safety) at Stadco commented: “To win this award for two years running is a direct reflection of the hard work of every person in the organisation. Ensuring safety at work is a priority of ours and we are hopeful of gaining further recognition of this in the national finals.”
