Dubai, July 26, 2020: Emirates Driving Institute, based in Dubai, is celebrating its success after landing an internationally-recognized award for demonstrating high health and safety standards.
Emirates Driving Institute has received a RoSPA Fleet Safety Trophy for working hard to ensure its staff, customers, suppliers, contractors, and partners get home safely to their families at the end of every working day.
Organizations that receive a RoSPA Award are recognized as being the world-leaders in health and safety practice. Every year, nearly 2,000 entrants vie to achieve the highest possible accolade in what is the UK’s longest-running H&S industry award.
Following the principles of the RoSPA National Safe Driving Award scheme, these awards are judged on verifiable historical performance data of accidents and the identification of an effective, cohesive corporate road risk management program.
Mahmood Al-Khamis, Director – Overseas Projects, Emirates Driving Institute, said:
“We are extremely honored to win this prestigious safety award from the most sought-after global accolades in health and safety. At EDI, we strive to create better, skillful, and safe drivers, and this award is a strong reiteration of our commitment towards it. It is also a reward for all our staff members who have successfully contributed over the years to create the brand ‘Emirates Driving Institute’. This award inspires us to strengthen further our reputation as the leading learner and driver training organization in the Middle East.”
Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of qualifications, awards, and events, said: “The RoSPA Awards scheme is the longest-running of its kind in the UK, but it receives entries from organizations around the world, making it one of the most sought-after global accolades in health and safety.”
“RoSPA wants every employee, wherever they are, to work safely in the knowledge that they will be going home unharmed and healthy at the end of every day. The RoSPA Award winners are vital to helping achieve this goal, as by entering they are driving up standards and setting new benchmarks for organizations everywhere. Currently, around 7 million people are directly impacted by the RoSPA Awards, but the scheme’s influence is even wider.”
