Industrial Services reach Safety Milestone
Wood’s Industrial Services service line has recently achieved a significant safety milestone.
With over 2000 employees in the service line work on sites across the UK and Ireland including shipyards and docks, offshore platforms, power stations, construction and manufacturing sites, Industrial Services have reached six million man hours with no recorded lost work cases.
A lost work case is a work related injury or illness which results in the injured person being absent from work for one or more days.
Craig Shanaghey, Senior Vice President, UK & Ireland for Industrial Services, commented: “Ensuring our people remain safe does not happen by chance – we plan for success by using the procedures in place and working together to keep safety at the forefront of our business.”
“Through a sustained investing in time, training and resources we have seen our safety observation report numbers from our employees reach more than 1000 each month- proactively preventing incidents and injuries through the monitoring, trending and management of both safe and unsafe behaviour.”
“Encouraging workforce engagement and everyone playing their part in accident and incident prevention with support from our supervision and leadership team has played an important part in our continued safety performance”.
