Mace has achieved four British Safety Council Occupational Health & Safety and Environmental Five Star Audits at Heathrow for Infrastructure and Aviation and AMS Campus for International Contracting.
Heathrow was awarded an overall score of 98.46% (a cumulative score of 96.37%) within the Environmental Management Indicator areas and an overall score of 95.04% (cumulative score of 94.55%) within the Occupational Health and Safety Management Indicator areas.
AMS was awarded an overall score of 97.95% (a cumulative score of 95.65%) within the Environmental Management Indicator areas and an overall score of 93.57% (cumulative score of 91.39%) within the Occupational Health and Safety Management Indicator areas.
The qualifying level to reach five star success is 92%, which was exceeded in both audits. The audits are focused on policy and organisation, strategy and planning, implementation and operation, performance measurement and evaluation and review. The inspection process is used to determine the effectiveness of the implementation of Mace’s environmental and occupational health and safety management arrangements on the Heathrow site.
The audits reviewed key areas of Mace’s management documentation and systems in relation to the requirements of the British Safety Council’s Audit specification, followed by an inspection of Mace’s projects.
The audits also focused on key aspects of Mace’s approach to managing environmental and occupational health and safety issues and offering a structured path for continuous improvement towards best practice.
The five sections of the audits are divided into 56 elements, which attract a maximum numerical value of 5,000 points.
Nigel Cole, Director of Aviation at Mace, said:
“I would like to congratulate the Infrastructure and Aviation team for their hard work in imbedding client and Mace sustainability and health and safety strategies. This incredible achievement of receiving five stars for both of these areas would not have happened without the full commitment and engagement of our people. This is a significant achievement for our Business Unit and I’d like to thank everyone for putting a significant amount of effort into preparing the teams for the audit and establishing a consistent standard.”
David Williams, Director of AMS Campus, said:
“I am delighted with the results of yet another successful achievement with the British Safety Council Five Star audits. After the first Five Star result in 2015, this is testament to the enthusiasm, continued dedication and drive demonstrated by the AMS Campus team to deliver a fast paced project whilst maintaining the highest standards of both health & safety and sustainability. This has been possible through a collaborative approach with our supply chain recognising cultural differences and the joint desire to achieve excellence. I should like to congratulate the AMS Campus team on this well-deserved achievement and for their tremendous efforts in making it happen.”
