June 7, 2023 • London, UK

International logistics provider Peterson Energy Logistics has won the EHS Innovation Excellence Award for its achievements with Pro-Sapien, EHS software on Microsoft 365. 

Peterson Energy Logistics took home the Operational Risk Management award in London, UK, at the awards ceremony during the Verdantix EHS Summit EMEA 2023. 

Winners were selected across 10 categories by a panel of three independent judges from Verdantix, the International Institute of Risk & Safety Management, and sustainability consultancy Arup. 

Derek MacIver, HSEQ Manager at Peterson Energy Logistics, said:

“We are thrilled to win this prestigious award which is a testament to our team’s unwavering commitment, dedication, and innovative approach to improving risk management. 

“We have been working closely with the Pro-Sapien team for the past 10 years and their innovative solutions have been instrumental in our journey towards excellence. We look forward to continuing this collaboration and achieving even greater success in the future.”

Peterson Energy Logistics operates across 34 sites in seven countries providing the energy industry with integrated logistics services and supply chain solutions. The company is certified carbon-neutral and has ambitious plans to be net zero by 2025.  

Having previously dealt with risk assessments on a site-by-site basis, Peterson Energy Logistics set out to simplify and enable a better understanding of risk and work instructions. 

The roll out of Pro-Sapien’s Risk Assessment Software on Microsoft 365 in 2022 enabled Peterson Energy Logistics to reduce the number of risk assessments in their system.  

All risk assessments were redeveloped to reduce volume and establish a systematic process within the Pro-Sapien platform, enabling all workers to perform their work to a safe and high standard. 

Hannah Stewart, Marketing & Communications Manager at Pro-Sapien, commented: 

“We were pleased to nominate Peterson for the Operational Risk Award and we’re over the moon they’ve won. Peterson has been a Pro-Sapien client for several years and we are continuously impressed with how they’re using our EHS solution on their Microsoft platform. This Verdantix award deservedly reflects the hard work of everyone involved and recognises Peterson’s commitment to keeping their people safe.”   

The Verdantix award win adds to Peterson’s impressive list of HSEQ accolades received this year.  In May, Peterson won the Port Health and Safety award at Port of Aberdeen‘s inaugural Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) Awards for the company’s efforts in safety leadership, employee engagement, and implementing and achieving goal zero. Peterson also received Energy Transition Award at The Offshore Achievement Awards earlier this year for implementing a range of sustainability initiatives that saw the company achieve carbon-neutral status at the end of 2022. 

Peterson continues to work with Pro-Sapien’s EHS software on Microsoft 365 to effectively manage risk and improve safety outcomes across the business.
