Global logistics execution and supply chain services platform EV Cargo has received two prestigious awards for its commitment to workplace safety during 2023, after seeing a 37% reduction in accidents.

EV Cargo has won a RoSPA Gold award for occupational safety, improving on the silver accolade it received last year, demonstrating its dedication to ensuring its staff, customers, clients and contractors get home safely at the end of every working day.

It also collected an International Safety Award from the British Safety Council in recognition of its commitment to keeping its workers and workplaces healthy and safe in 2023.      

The double success is recognition of EV Cargo’s continuing efforts to promote and maintain a culture of safety across its international workforce, underpinned by its safety, health, environment and quality (SHEQ) strategy, which has seen regular safety conferences, meetings and tours for staff and management.

Enhanced safety training is designed to prevent accidents, improve reporting and promote the wellbeing of staff.

In 2023 EV Cargo achieved a 30% reduction in RIDDORs (Reporting of Incidents, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences) and a 37% fall in lost-time accidents.

Andrew Mawson, Head of Compliance and Risk at EV Cargo, said: “Receiving these two highly prized awards is a great achievement for everyone in the business and demonstrates a commitment to continually improving our safety performance. Our robust SHEQ strategy and positive engagement across our workforces means safety, health and wellbeing is prioritised right across our business.”

Mike Robinson, Chief Executive of British Safety Council, congratulated EV Cargo on its success in winning an International Safety Award 2024 with a Pass: “The British Safety Council applauds EV Cargo on its achievement. The award is to recognise its commitment and hard work to keep their employees and workplaces free of injury and ill health.  

The RoSPA Awards is the UK’s largest health and safety programme. With almost 2,000 entries annually from over 50 countries, impacting over seven million employees, they offer a platform to spotlight an unwavering commitment to continuous improvement and excellence in health and safety.

Julia Small, RoSPA’s Achievements Director, said: “Workplace accidents don’t just pose financial risks and operational disruptions; they significantly impact the quality of life for individuals. This is why acknowledging and rewarding excellent safety performance is vital.

“We congratulate EV Cargo for winning a prestigious RoSPA Award and showing an unwavering commitment to keeping employees, clients and customers safe from accidental harm and injury.”
