Latest Lanxess award makes it four in Singapore

This is the fourth time the ‘Safe Contractor of the Month’ award has been presented to Hertel UTOC.
Hertel and UTOC are playing a significant part in the project, providing a team 960 strong which contributes to a total of around 2000 from 14 contractors working on site. In addition to the award, Hertel UTOC has crossed the milestone of 1 million man-hours LTI free.

Various awareness programmes have been run - both in conjunction with Foster Wheeler and independently - focusing on safe working within specific areas such as hotworks, safe lifting and rigging, and working at height.

It was clear from the start: there were literally 21 days for the maintenance shutdown in the Omrin boiler. That meant working under high pressure and asked for effective cooperation between Hertel and all other parties.
Frank Schiltkamp has worked at Hertel for 32 years and is currently the project manager and contact person for the customer and Hertel at the Amsterdamse Afval Energie Bedrijf. His pride is also evident in his responses: "The whole team is there day and night for AEB, in principle. I know that everybody keeps their mobiles by their bedside, just in case AEB calls."
More than two million hours without a lost-time incident has been reached by Hertel at Sellafield in the UK.
