Foster Wheeler AG has announced that its Global Engineering and Construction Group has won eight Workplace Safety & Health (WSH) Awards in Singapore for outstanding safety performance in 2008.

The WSH Awards are presented annually by the Workplace Safety and Health (WSH) Council, in collaboration with the Ministry of Manpower.

Foster Wheeler won a Gold Workplace Safety and Health Performance Award (WSHPA) for its overall safety performance and the Foster Wheeler-led joint venture executing ExxonMobil’s second petrochemical project won a Silver WSHPA.

In addition, six of the company’s projects received a SHARP (Safety and Health Award Recognition for Projects) award.

“One of our prime objectives on every project is that ‘nobody gets hurt; everyone returns to his/her family safe and uninjured.’ These awards are a reflection of our genuine commitment to this objective, our ability to execute projects safely and the quality of the safety and health management systems which underpin our performance,” said Umberto della Sala, President and COO of Foster Wheeler AG.

Foster Wheeler has now won 38 awards in Singapore for outstanding health and safety performance on projects.
