Stanlow – a winner in the 2014 RoSPA safety awards

Essar Oil UK received the gold award for 2014 and the order of distinction for 18 consecutive gold awards at its Stanlow manufacturing complex.
Delighted to be recognised for Essar Stanlow’s commitment to occupational health and safety, site manager Jon Mason commented: “We’re very proud of this achievement, which is our 18th consecutive award, as it recognises our absolute commitment to preventing injuries and ill health at Stanlow.
” The RoSPA awards date back 58 years and recognise commitment to continuous improvement in accident and ill health prevention at work. Through the scheme, which is open to businesses and organisations of all types and sizes from across the UK and overseas, judges consider entrants’ overarching occupational health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.
David Rawlins, RoSPA’s awards manager, said: “The RoSPA awards encourage the raising of occupational health and safety standards across the board. Organisations that gain recognition for their health and safety management systems, such as Essar Oil UK’s Stanlow manufacturing complex, contribute to a collective raising of the bar for other organisations to aspire to, and we offer them our congratulations.”
Stanlow produces approximately 15% of UK transport fuels, including three billion litres of petrol, 3.5 billion litres of diesel and two billion litres of jet fuel per year.
