ATS Euromaster wins RoSPA Gold Award for fifth year running
ATS Euromaster has received the Gold Award from the Royal
Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) for the fifth consecutive year.
RoSPA presented the tyre and vehicle maintenance provider
with the award for its introduction of new safety schemes in 2017, aimed at
improving safety communication throughout the business and a focus on further
reducing incidents related to manual handling.
Paul Millward, health, safety and environment manager at ATS
Euromaster, said: “We’ve seen year-on-year improvements to health and safety
for five years running, and this award validates our commitment to being one of
the safest companies in our sector. We have invested heavily in training
initiatives so our customers can be sure our staff are working as safely as
possible - be that in one of our centres, or on the road as part of our mobile
In 2017, ATS Euromaster’s SAFE (Specific Activity For
Excellence) Programme targeted the causes of specific handling incidents to
ensure the company’s expert technicians can easily avoid them in the future.
The programme was backed by video tutorials and information posters in the
company’s 330-plus service centres.
ATS Euromaster has also revamped its service centre inspection
logs, consolidating separate publications of compliance literature in a single
book - making it easier for managers to ensure their service centre continues
to meet the high standard required to ensure a safe working environment.
The company has also made improvements to its
staffroom-based ‘What’s The Focus?’ communications board, providing a direct
link between technicians and management to quickly communicate key safety
information via engaging graphics and bulletins.
The RoSPA Gold Award is the top accolade available from the
safety charity. It is presented to businesses that demonstrate the highest
commitment to reducing accidents, and can only be retained by those that
deliver continuous improvement to an already robust safety record.
