AMECs Jinks saluted by National Safety Council


Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States (08 February 2010) - AMEC, the international engineering and project management company, announces today that Roger Jinks, President of the company's Earth & Environmental division, has been named to the National Safety Council's 2010 list of "CEOs Who Get It."

Only eight executives made this year's list, which recognizes corporate leaders who have made distinguished contributions to the safety and health of their employees, their employees' families and to corporate and community sustainability.

"When leaders value safety, engage with employees and implement best practices, they are able to produce successful and profitable workplaces," said Janet Froetscher, National Safety Council president and CEO, adding: "Mr. Jinks closely monitors his organization's safety program and addresses injuries both on and off the job. His passion for safety and the well-being of his employees shows in AMEC's safety record."

The National Safety Council is the premier advocacy group for safety in the United States.

"While I am proud of this designation, for me, it is a team honor, not a personal honor," said Jinks. "Our Safety, Health and Environment Program, led by Vladimir Ivensky, is a model of hands-on advocacy and hard work across all levels of our organization. At AMEC, we are committed to continuous improvement of our health and safety performance throughout all our global operations. We focus on leading by example, influencing the safety behaviors of our work colleagues and communities where we live and work through integrated safety management, involvement of experts, daily safety messages, quizzes, inspections, training sessions, and performance updates."

AMEC has received six National Safety Council awards in the past three years. These include two last October "- one for logging five million employee hours without a lost-time injury over a 17-month period in the United States and the other for four million hours without a lost-time injury in its global operations over a period of more than seven months.  AMEC also was listed as one of "America's Safest Companies" by EHS Today magazine last November.
