Alpha Mead Facilities (AMF) has been adjudged winner of the High Quality Professional Business Service Award, organised by the 9jaSAFE Awards.
The Award, which is designed to distinguish firms and individuals, who record outstanding results in their industries, recognised AMF, a facilities management (FM) company with operations in Nigeria, Dubai, South Africa, Ghana, Senegal and Cameroun for its outstanding achievements in the FM industry.
“This is a well-deserved award, which we are convinced is merited, given the amount of time, financial and very high quality human resources that we have deployed to take charge of this aspect of our business,” Femi Akintunde, an engineer and Alpha Mead Group Managing Director, said.
He described the award as apt, giving the level of awareness about Health, Safety, and Environment (HSE) in most organisations. “It’s quite unfortunate that some people still assume that safety is expensive, when in reality the cost of an accident or fatality far exceeds the initial cost of preventing same,” he added.
He further explained that as a Health and Safety conscious organisation, the firm has, in its 10 years of operations, implemented strategies that ensure the strict compliance of its HSE policy, which is periodically reviewed to suit the dynamic nature of the business environment. Similarly, the company recently won the achievement award for Outstanding Commitment to Health, Safety, and Environment by the Nigeria Safety Award for Excellence.
The Awards Co-ordinator, Mr. Jonathan Hicks, expressed pride in the success of the winners: “Working in this vibrant and exciting region offers many challenges and opportunities. Therefore, it is my pleasure to congratulate Alpha Mead Facilities and wish them the best of luck as they look ahead,”he said.
