Sharjah Container Terminal and Momentum Logistics, divisions of Gulftainer Group, based in Sharjah, UAE, are celebrating after landing an internationally-recognised award for demonstrating high health and safety standards.
These facilities have received a RoSPA Gold for Health and Safety Award for working hard to ensure its staff, customers, clients, and contractors get home safely to their families at the end of every working day.
Organisations receiving a RoSPA Award are recognised as being world-leaders in health and safety practice. Every year, nearly 2,000 entrants vie to achieve the highest possible accolade in what is the UK’s longest-running H&S industry awards.
Charles Menkhorst, Gulftainer Group CEO, said: “Gulftainer is delighted to be recognised for its health and safety practices at SCT and Momentum Logistics. We strongly believe that our people are our most critical asset and we need to provide them with a safe working environment. Safety at work is an integral part of Gulftainer’s DNA. The ROSPA award is a testament to that commitment.”
Julia Small, RoSPA’s achievements director, said: “The RoSPA Awards scheme is the longest-running of its kind in the UK, but it receives entries from organisations across the globe, making it one of the most sought-after achievement awards for health and safety worldwide.
“RoSPA is very proud of the achievements of its entrants, and with this award we recognise the best of the best, those organisations that have gone the extra mile, raising the bar for the delivery of safety in the workplace. Employees, wherever they may be should be able to go to work safe in the knowledge that they will return home unharmed and healthy at the end of every day. Our RoSPA Award winners are central to achieving this goal. By entering they are driving up standards and setting new safety benchmarks for organisations across the world. Currently, around 7million people are directly impacted by the RoSPA Awards, but the scheme’s global influence is even wider – with nearly 2000 organisations from 46 countries represented this year. I would also particularly want to thank our main sponsor NEBOSH, the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health – for their continued support for the 16th consecutive year.”
