Abu Dhabi 31 June 2015 -- Al Jaber Leasing Services, a member of Al Jaber Group, won the RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Award 2015. Al Jaber Leasing Services have on their first submission attained a gold award in two prestigious safety categories. ALES are the first and only leasing company in the UAE to have both these awards.

As the UK’s family safety charity, RoSPA’s mission to save lives and reduce injuries covers all ages and stages of life. In support of this mission, the RoSPA Awards, which date back 59 years, recognise commitment to continuous improvement in accident and ill health prevention at work. Through the scheme, which is open to businesses and organisations of all types and sizes from across the UK and overseas, judges consider entrants’ overarching occupational health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.

Mr. Saher Hamd, Executive Director of Al Jaber Leasing Services said: “Ever since the commencement of Al Jaber Group, health and safety are priorities to our chairman and board members. At ALES we exert noticeable effort to maintain the highest health and safety standards and procedures. We are proud to be the first and only leasing company in the UAE to have won these two prestigious awards, and we are committed to enhancing our health and safety policies and processes”.

David Rawlins, RoSPA’s awards manager, said: “The RoSPA Awards encourage improvement in occupational health and safety management. Organisations that gain recognition for their health and safety management systems, such as Al Jaber Leasing Services, contribute to raising standards overall and we congratulate them. Awards are presented in more than 20 industry sectors, and they also recognise excellence in specialist areas, such as the management of occupational road risk (MORR), an award that Al Jaber Leasing Services was also a Gold Award winner in and again we congratulate them.”

The gold award in the prestigious annual scheme run by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) was presented during a ceremony at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel, at the National Exhibition Centre. The majority of RoSPA’s awards grade achievement at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels. Organisations that maintain high standards in consecutive years can win gold medals, president’s awards and orders of distinction.”
