Meanwhile, a petrochemical joint venture between Foster Wheeler and ExxonMobil, also in Singapore, has won a Silver WSHPA. In addition, seven other Foster Wheeler projects in Singapore have received a SHARP (Safety and Health Award Recognition for Projects) award. These included;
• Shell Bukom Refinery Modification Project

All of these awards demonstrate our consistent world-class health and safety performance, our robust health and safety management systems and a genuine ‘safety first’ culture throughout our organisation.”
