GONG: ATS Euromaster celebrate award
ATS Euromaster have scooped a safety accreditation from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) in their 2013 Safety Awards.
The accolade comes after ATS Euromaster continued to lower the number of lost time accidents, recording an unprecedented 25% reduction last year.
In 2011, ATS Euromaster reduced their lost time accidents by 58% compared with 2007, making the recognition particularly noteworthy.
ATS Euromaster were the only national fast fit and tyre specialist to win at the Safety Awards, which recognise health and safety success.
Stan Rudowski, Group Head of Health, Safety and Technical Services at ATS Euromaster, said: “Strict health and safety standards are paramount in all our working practices.
“We were the first national tyre specialist to be accredited by both SAFEContractor and the Contractors Health & Safety Scheme (CHAS), so our commitment to promoting a culture of ‘safety first’ within ATS Euromaster is reinforced further with this latest RoSPA award.
“With the largest fleet of mobile technicians in the UK, all of ATS Euromaster’s staff are expertly trained to work safely and competently in a range of challenging environments, from airfields to quarries.
“Staff follow our ‘Safe by Choice’ programme, which promotes safety as a personal choice.
“This programme has gone from strength to strength and is a key factor in the continued reduction in the number of lost time accidents we’ve experienced.
“When our customers call on the assistance of ATS Euromaster, they can be assured they are in the hands of professionals, who have been extensively trained and adhere to a strict code of practice.”
A RoSPA Safety Award is one of the most sought after accreditations in the sector.
All entrants must demonstrate a commitment to implementing a range of health and safety practices, which are judged by some of the leading bodies in the industry.
