Expro awarded ROSPA Scotland trophy

26th September 2013

Leading international oilfield services company, Expro, has received another major acknowledgement for its approach to occupational health and safety management from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).


Expro was presented with the prestigious RoSPA Scotland Trophy at the charity’s Occupational Health and Safety Awards, in a ceremony at the Hilton Glasgow, on Thursday 19 September.

The RoSPA Scotland Trophy is presented annually to recognise the highest standard of health and safety management and performance by an organisation based in or operating in Scotland.

This accolade adds to the nine years of continuous recognition of Expro by RoSPA for its consistent and outstanding safety record. Earlier this year, the company was awarded a RoSPA Commendation for excellence in health and safety at work within the oil and gas sector in the Society’s 2013 Awards.

In 2010, Expro received a coveted Gold Medal in recognition of six years of industry-leading health and safety performance and commitment. In 2011 and 2012, Expro was also commended in the oil & gas industry sector highlighting its long-term commitment to safety.

David Rawlins, RoSPA’s Awards Manager, said: “RoSPA firmly believes that organisations that demonstrate commitment to continuous improvement in accident and ill health prevention deserve recognition. Expro has shown that it is committed to striving for such continuous improvement and we are delighted to honour it through the presentation of an award.”

David Ford, Expro’s Group HSEQ Manager, comments: “We are very proud to receive this major award from RoSPA. This accolade is indicative of how much effort Expro employees, across the globe, put into safety and safe working practices in the delivery of our services.”
