Amec Foster Wheeler congratulates winner of Women in Science and Engineering Awards


Sponsorship of health and safety category is part of ongoing drive to promote STEM careers for women

Amec Foster Wheeler today congratulates Helen James of BAM Nuttall on winning the health and safety category of this year’s Women in Science and Engineering (WISE) Awards.

The award is designed to recognise women in science or engineering who have made a contribution to improving the health and safety culture in the workplace or out in the field.

Amec Foster Wheeler sponsored the health and safety category in this year’s awards as part of the company’s ongoing commitment to WISE, which promotes science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) studies and careers for women.

Helen is a worthy winner of this award and we congratulate her for advancing the cause of health and safety, which is an overriding priority in everything we do.

If organisations want to make sustained improvements to their health and safety culture, it is important for diverse points of view to be heard.

Amec Foster Wheeler is already seeing encouraging results in our drive for more diversity and inclusion and our present and future work with WISE will, I’m sure, provide benefits not only for us, but for the industries we work in as well.
Tom Jones, Vice President of Amec Foster Wheeler’s Clean Energy business

The award was presented by Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal at a black tie dinner in London last night.

Amec Foster Wheeler was one of the organisations nominated by WISE in the employer category of this year’s awards.
