Innospec Inc. announced that its Ellesmere Port, U.K. production facility was recently awarded a Gold Medal by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA). The award recognizes the plant’s safety, health and environmental performance.

Innospec was one of only nine chemical companies in the U.K. to receive a Gold Medal from RoSPA. The company began participating in the RoSPA program in 1998, when its Ellesmere Port site faced a number of safety and environmental challenges. The facility qualified for this year’s Gold Medal by winning Gold Certificates from RoSPA for five consecutive years, and by demonstrating continuous improvements and progress each year.

Paul Jennings, Innospec’s president and chief executive officer, said, “The dramatic improvement in the safety, health and environmental performance of the Ellesmere Port site over the last 10 years is a great example of what we can achieve when everyone at Innospec is moving forward in one direction. Winning this Gold Medal from RoSPA sends a clear message about how important safety and training is to the Innospec company.”

Also in the U.K., the company’s Widnes site recently achieved its first RoSPA certificate.

In the U.S., the North Carolina Department of Labor recognized two Innospec facilities producing performance chemicals for outstanding on-the-job safety achievements during 2006 at its biannual safety awards banquet. The company’s Highpoint, NC site received its sixth award for its excellent safety record, while the Spencer, NC location was awarded its fifth award for safety and health awareness.

In addition, the company recently received a Sustainable Development Certificate of Excellence from the U.K. Chemical Industry Association.
