British Safety Council has been auditing numerous companies so as to establish their efforts towards environmental risk management. The audit committee decides on the winning companies once the audit is complete depending on stars awarded to each company. The companies that are considered to show excellence in management are given a maximum of a 5-star rating, and in the year 2016, all the 18 companies together with OSI Group had received a score of five. This led to these companies being nominated for the Globe of Honor Award.

Lynda Armstrong, the chair of British Safety Council, congratulated OSI Industries for their unmatched performance in her speech during the award event. She added that the company has always been concerned about environmental protection and other health and safety matters.

Careers with IAP help soldiers transition back to civilian life

IAP Worldwide is a leader in global logistics. Primarily serving the United States Armed Forces, it offers a staggering range of services from space operations to flying top-secret intelligence missions for the CIA. IAP is a top jobs creator in the U.S. and is always seeking talented professionals to round out its ranks.

IAP makes the transition to civilian life a little less hectic

Combat veterans returning from war often face a difficult transition. War zones are no laughing matter and what’s routine for the forward deployed soldier would send many civilians into a state of catatonic fear. IAP’s jobs have many features of military life on Careercast.com, but also more features of civilian life than a forward deployment offers.

For many soldiers returning from the battlefield, IAP has provided a way to ease back into full fledged civilian life, a sort of decompression chamber. Yet many former soldiers who go to work for IAP discover that their skill set and IAP Worldwide’s military-friendly environment are just the right match. Ex-military personnel routinely stay on with IAP as contractors until they retire. The pay is typically outstanding and the benefits top-flight.

Many jobs to choose from

IAP doesn’t just have a diverse workforce but one of the most diverse workloads of any company that exists. One of IAP’s large contracts is the Distributed Common Ground System. This joint intelligence infrastructure handles everything from remotely identifying and diffusing roadside IEDs to operating airborne reconnaissance and strike assets like the MQ9 Reaper drone. Employees on such jobs are given high-level intelligence tasks and many have security clearances.

Another interesting IAP Worldwide business is the expeditionary infrastructure division. Under this division, employees are sent to remote locations such as African jungles or Mideast deserts. There they are given the task of constructing from the desolate wilderness the all facilities and amenities of modern civilization. These missions take place everywhere from friendly ground to hostile enemy territory. Again, many of these missions are classified as top-secret, with employees required to wear side arms at all times in some cases.

IAP Worldwide provides a fantastic opportunity for anyone with the skill set to contribute to one of its many, diverse missions. With pay that often exceeds that of the highest paid white-collar professionals, its employees are both well compensated and well recognized for their contributions. Ex-soldiers describe the sense of camaraderie on typical IAP deployments as very similar to that experienced in combat zones among tight knit units.
