Middle East Navigation Aids Service (MENAS) has scooped a prestigious international Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Award, demonstrating its commitment to health and safety excellence, reports Ship Management International.
RoSPA Health and Safety Awards
MENAS, a branch of the International Foundation for Aids to Navigation (IFAN), won a Silver Award in the Engineering category, showing its dedication to ensuring its personnel have a safe working day. It is the fourth consecutive RoSPA Award for MENAS having previously being awarded Silver in 2022 and Bronze in 2021 and 2020.
The RoSPA Health and Safety Awards is the largest occupational health and safety awards programme in the UK. Now into its 67th year, the Awards have almost 2,000 entries every year, covering nearly 50 countries and a reach of over seven million employees. The programme recognises organisations’ commitment to continuous improvement in the prevention of accidents and ill health at work, looking at entrants’ overarching health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.
While most awards are non-competitive – recognising individual organisations’ achievements – competitive awards are presented in 20 industry sectors and for specialist areas of health and safety management.
Operating from its main base in Bahrain and a support base in Abu Dhabi, MENAS owns and maintains an extensive network of Aids to Navigation (AtoNs) as well as owning four DGPS transmitters which provide essential positioning information, and broadcasting Notices to Mariners, advising on hazards to shipping.
Sponsored by Croner-i, the RoSPA Awards scheme is the longest-running of its kind in the UK, and receives entries from organisations across the globe, making it one of the most sought-after achievement awards for the health and safety industry.
