ATS EUROMASTER TAKES GOLD IN RoSPA SAFETY AWARDS
14 May 2014
ATS Euromaster is pleased to announce that its excellence in occupational health and safety management has been recognized at the highest level by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).
The company has now become the only national tyre specialist to be accredited with the RoSPA Gold Award. Success in the 2014 Safety Awards follows a series of awards and accreditations over the past 4 years underscoring the company’s ongoing commitment to raising health and safety standards.
The prestigious accolade was awarded to ATS Euromaster at an official award ceremony on May 14 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel.
ATS Euromaster operates one of the largest fleets of mobile technicians in the UK and implements a number of schemes to ensure the company runs as safely as possible – including a ‘Safe by Choice’ programme, which promotes safety as a personal choice for staff.
ATS Euromaster’s Group Managing Director, Peter Allen, says: “Safety is not something that can be taken lightly and scooping a prestigious Gold RoSPA award really highlights the high standards ATS Euromaster sets and achieves in all areas of our business.”
Stan Rudowski, Group Head of Health, Safety and Technical Services at ATS Euromaster, adds: “ATS Euromaster has nearly five decades’ experience in this industry, as such our customers get some of the most experienced professionals in the sector and some of the safest too, guaranteeing outstanding customer care.
“We are delighted that ATS Euromaster’s continued dedication to improving health and safety standards has been recognised by such a prestigious organisation.”
The RoSPA Safety Awards recognise health and safety excellence, and are only awarded to businesses which demonstrate a commitment to implementing a range of health and safety practices.
Alongside being the first national tyre and fast fit supplier to be awarded a Gold RoSPA award, ATS Euromaster was also the first in its sector to be endorsed by both SAFEContractor and the Contractors Health and Safety Scheme (CHAS) – accreditations it continues to hold.
The internationally renowned RoSPA Safety Awards have set the standard for excellence in safety practices since they were launched in 1956.
