Global Marine Systems has been awarded the Order of Distinction by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) in recognition of the company’s 15th consecutive year of outstanding occupational health and safety results.

The RoSPA Awards, which date back 58 years, recognise commitment to continuous improvement in the promotion of safety and the prevention of accidents.

The Order of Distinction award will be presented during a ceremony in June, and demonstrates Global Marine’s ongoing commitment to health and safety success. With nearly 2000 entries, the Awards are one of the most sought after accolades in health and safety achievement.

RoSPA awards manager David Rawlins said: "The RoSPA Awards encourage the raising of occupational health and safety standards across the board. Organisations that gain recognition for their health and safety management systems, such as Global Marine Systems, contribute to a collective raising of the bar for other organisations to aspire to, and we offer them our congratulations."

Global Marine Systems fleet and operational support director Captain Simon Hibberd said: "The RoSPA award is a wonderful endorsement of the outstanding health and safety commitment within Global Marine Systems. We log over 3 million man hours each year on a wide variety of subsea cable projects, so this achievement is significant for us."
