American Power Conversion (APC), a leading global supplier of high availability systems for network-critical physical infrastructure (NCPI), has been awarded highly commended status for the second year in succession by the National Safety Organization (NISO).
The prestigious 'Electronics/Electrical Award 2005' award recognises improvements in safety at work and is awarded to organisations for outstanding achievements in meeting National Irish Safety Organisation standards. It was announced at the 14th Annual Awards Ceremony dinner, held in the Citywest Hotel, Dublin. The judging of the Awards was undertaken by an independent panel of experts.
Over 100 companies from a wide range of industrial sectors are nominated for the awards. This years nominees included many leading household names including Hewlett Packard, Tyco Healthcare, Abbott Ireland., and OMalley Construction.
Bill Ryan, Health and Safety Manager, American Power Conversion Ireland said: The Electronics/Electrical award is only given to companies that can demonstrate the highest standards with regard to management of a safe work environment. Safety concerns are a critical part of APC culture and how we conduct our business, from our products right through to the well-being of our staff and customers.
Receiving the award for a second year in succession is a significant endorsement of the ongoing development of our health and safety policy and we are naturally delighted that the National Safety Organization has chosen to recognise us with this important accolade. The new Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005, which came into effect from this September, raises in the bar in terms of personnel wellbeing, and APC will continue its hard work to avoid accidents in the workplace.
