ATS Euromaster Sets Industry Safety Record

ATS Euromaster
ATS Euromaster captured the Gold Award from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accients for the fourth consecutive year.
ATS Euromaster has received the Gold Award from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) for the fourth year running. The award follows ATS Euromaster’s introduction of additional programmes to consolidate its industry health and safety record.

As the first national tyre and vehicle maintenance provider to hold the RoSPA Gold Award, the repeat receipt of the accolade means ATS Euromaster’s commitment to safer working environments remains unmatched in the sector.

Winning a RoSPA Gold Award requires a demonstration that the business has improved its health and safety practices from the previous year. During 2016, ATS Euromaster introduced its ‘Think safe: Home safe’ programme, which emphasises how health and safety regulations protect the lives of colleagues and customers.

Additions to the rules include new guidance on safe driving for mobile technicians, designed to help those driving the company’s fleet of 710 mobile service vans continue to work as safely as technicians working in centres. There has also been a renewed focus on wheel security to protect all customers.

Paul Millward, Health, Safety and Environment Manager, ATS Euromaster, says: “When it comes to health and safety, there’s no room for complacency. This is why we continue to invest in new training and programmes designed to ensure all our staff and customers benefit from safe working practices, whether it’s in a service centre or by the side of the road.

ATS Euromaster also recently renewed its SafeContractor accreditation, meaning the company has the most extensive health and safety certification in the sector. In addition to having held the RoSPA Gold Award since 2014 and SafeContractor since 2009, ATS Euromaster has also been a member of the Contractors Health and Safety Scheme (CHAS) since 2010.
