EMCOR UK Recently Presented Seven Prestigious Safety Awards From RoSPA & the British Safety Council
Leading facilities management provider EMCOR UK is proud to announce it was recently presented 7 top safety awards from two of the UK’s most prestigious safety organisations, RoSPA and the British Safety Council, recognising the company for its significant focus on health and safety management.
EMCOR UK received the Gold Medal Award in RoSPA’s (the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents) annual scheme. RoSPA also presented EMCOR UK with five Gold Medal Awards for its work with its customers Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE), Public Health England (PHE), RAF Coningsby, BAE Systems, and United Utilities.
RoSPA awards represent excellence in health and safety management systems at customer sites including practices, leadership and workforce involvement.

For example, EMCOR UK has had zero reportable incidents at AWE since 2011.
