Grampian-based ACE Winches has achieved a five star grading from the British Safety Council in its Five Star Occupational Health and Safety Audit conducted by the British Safety Council.

The audit measured ACE’s performance against a number of key safety management indicators and achieved the highest rating.

The British Safety Council’s Five Star Occupational Health and Safety Audit provides organisations with a worldwide benchmark of their safety management systems against current best practice to enable continual improvement.

The Audit specification was revised in 2013 to include performance measurements in two additional safety management indicators (Leadership and Continuous Improvement) which are continually assessed, alongside other indicators, throughout the audit process.

Richard Wilson, Chief Operations Officer, ACE Winches, said: “This accolade is a testimony to how we use ACE Focus to inspire our people to continuously improve in key areas of the business.  This award helps us to demonstrate to staff and customers our commitment to achieving and delivering world-class standards.”
