Getting closer to our goal of world class safety excellence
A constant commitment to improvement at Hertel has been reflected in the safety performance for 2010. A fresh approach to safety delivered great results, bringing us closer to our goal of zero incidents.
Both a new safety management programme and Workplace Safety Assessments (WPA) were introduced during 2010, with managers and front line staff given additional training in safety observation.
These measures led to Hertel’s Total Recordable Injury Frequency (TRIF) score – the international standard by which safety records are measured – of 0.36.
The number of recordable incidents amongst the 13,000 staff showed a 44% reduction. Some divisions reported particularly strong results, with several regions completing millions of hours injury free and no recordable incidents in the Offshore business in the whole of 2010.
Dirk Eikemans, HSE Director, says: “These achievements are the direct result of the commitment and efforts of our staff worldwide, who continue to put safety at the heart of all Hertel’s work.
“Hertel has one of the best TRIF scores in the industry, but there is always room for improvement where safety is concerned. We have an ongoing safety management programme in place and expect to see a continued improvement in performance throughout 2011.”
