Safety-First Program yields new positive results.
For instance, Ammonia Production Plant construction site in Kingisepp (Leningrad region) with an incentive program for HSE rules observance has celebrated its 4 000 000 man-hours without incidents or injuries.
Each Thursday a commission made up of representatives of the Client and our Company’s HSE specialists conducts a site walk down monitoring compliance with HSE rules. Following the walk down Client’s representative identifies which types of safety procedures shall be discussed with the employees and which individuals shall be rewarded for due performance.
Next day, on Friday, prior to the commencement of a work shift Project Manager gathers all workers engaged into construction activities for a Toolbox Meeting where HSE specialist explains how to safely conduct construction activities and which work elements shall be paid most attention to.
“We tackle different HSE topics: works at height or use and importance of PPE. Toolbox is attended by Project Manager who demonstrates commitment to safety rules through personal example and Client’s representative who awards employees for their compliance with HSE rules,” Ainur Kulchanova, senior HSE specialist, notes.
“These meetings are aimed not only at reminding our employees about the importance of safety rules, but also at getting across the ideas of the principle management of the Company, that is that no one should be afraid to stop works if they see that their health and safety are compromised. In our Company safety gets first priority and it’s important that this rule governs each specialist regardless of their position,” Branko Lukovic, Project Manager, says.
