Celebrating International Women in Engineering Day!
Today we celebrate International Women in Engineering Day and the amazing work that women engineers around the world are doing.
We would like to introduce you to On Line Design’s Piping Designer, Alex Seaton whose love of engineering stems from a combination of two things. In her own words:
“Firstly, of my own curiosity, when travelling to the Netherlands on the ferry as a young girl, passing what I would later understand to be Rotterdam’s oil refineries and wondering what everything is and why it all does what it does. Everything from the almost mirror like reflection of the sunset in the stainless-steel piping to the plumes of steam and the flares from the stacks burning bright was completely fascinating to me.
The second, is down to growing up around the motor industry and being surrounded by beautiful cars, wanting to understand more about how the things we use and take for granted each and every day are actually put together, constantly evolving and becoming more efficient and globally conscientious, from diesel and petrol engines to hydrogen, hybrids and now solely electric engines.”
On Line Design & Engineering Ltd receives RoSPA President’s Award
On Line Design & Engineering Ltd is celebrating after landing an internationally recognised award for demonstrating high health and safety standards.
On Line Design & Engineering Ltd has received a RoSPA President’s (10 Consecutive Golds) Health and Safety Award for working hard to ensure its staff get home safely to their families at the end of every working day.
Organisations receiving a RoSPA Award are recognised as being 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 awards.
Duncan Russell, Engineering Director, said: “On Line Design & Engineering are proud to accept this award from RoSPA. It’s a just reward to the conscientious and diligent efforts of our workforce who set the highest standards for themselves in relation to Health and Safety in the workplace.”
Julia Small, RoSPA’s achievements director, said: “The RoSPA Awards scheme is the longest-running of its kind in the UK, but it receives entries from organisations across the globe, making it one of the most sought-after achievement awards for health and safety worldwide.
“RoSPA is very proud of the achievements of its entrants, and with this award we recognise the best of the best, those organisations that have gone the extra mile, raising the bar for the delivery of safety in the workplace. Employees, wherever they may be should be able to go to work safe in the knowledge that they will return home unharmed and healthy at the end of every day. Our RoSPA Award winners are central to achieving this goal. By entering they are driving up standards and setting new safety benchmarks for organisations across the world. Currently, around 7million people are directly impacted by the RoSPA Awards, but the scheme’s global influence is even wider – with nearly 2000 organisations from 46 countries represented this year. I would also particularly want to thank our main sponsor NEBOSH, the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health – for their continued support for the 16th consecutive year.”
