The safety and wellbeing of Alstom employees, those working alongside Alstom employees, and visitors to an Alstom-owned or operated site, is one of our highest priorities. In the UK, Alstom has stringent Environment, Health and Safety policies and management systems which have enabled us to achieve a strong safety record across the industries in which we operate.
Our Power business has achieved the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) President's Award, the Engineering Construction Industry Association's (ECIA) 'Safe' working award and has been highly commended by the ECIA 'BEST' Register.
In addition, Alstom works with industry partners to address broader safety issues. In particular, in 2010, Alstom opened a world-class lifting and rigging training facility in Rugby, located in central England, in order to target industry concerns on safety issues relating to lifting activities. The facility uses classroom and practical training to share best practice with its own employees as well as being open to external companies.
