Golds galore for hazards specialists at safety awards
12 Jul 2018
Hazardous energy process and storage operator PX Group has won a slew of gold awards from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).
The company which power stations, gas processing plants and fuel storage depots in the UK, scooped five gold medals – in addition to the Order of Distinction and two gold wins that three of its sites have secured over consecutive years.
Sites to be honoured officially at a ceremony in Birmingham this month include the Teesside Gas Processing Plant which was commended with an Order of Distinction. It has secured a gold award for the 22 years in a row.
Five gold awards in five years for the group’s headquarters in Stockton and the gas fired Stallingborough Combined Heat and Power Plant, near Immingham, secured Gold Medal Achievement Awards for both sites.
Gold Awards were also allocated to the company’s Port Talbot Biomass Power Plant and the Inver Energy Fuel Terminal at Cardiff Dock.
Greg Mitchinson, director of safety health and environment, technical and risk management for the group, said: “Our objective is zero harm to people, the environment and the plants we operate and our team puts an enormous effort into this, maintaining our reputation as a proactive business which continues to achieve the very highest standards."
PX recently acquired the 370 acre site Saltend Chemicals Park, in Hull, from BP. It will be entered for a RoSPA award in 2019.
