RoSPA, Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents, is a safety charity. It bestowed the award based on its examination of Konecranes’ accident records and its health and safety management systems.

”RoSPA firmly believes that organizations that have demonstrated their commitment to continuous improvement in accident and ill health prevention deserve recognition,” said David Rawlins, RoSPA’s awards manager.

RoSPa further explained that Konecranes had demonstrated an ongoing program of improvement on its safety systems. “Konecranes UK Ltd has shown that it is committed to striving for such continuous improvement and we are delighted to honour it through the presentation of an award.”

Konecranes says that personnel safety requires additional time during installations. “At Konecranes there is no job so important or service so urgent that we cannot take the time to perform our work safely and correctly.”

The award ceremony will be held on May 27 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel in Birmingham UK.
