InterMoor UK Operations, part of Acteon’s foundations and moorings business, has completed seven years and more than 2,300 projects without a single lost-time incident (LTI).
The safety record includes the companies comprising InterMoor UK Operations – InterMoor Ltd, InterMoor Marine Services Ltd and ChainCo – and operations at three bases, five storage yards and numerous quayside locations where operations have been both in the UK and globally.
Alan Duncan, managing director of InterMoor UK Operations, said, “Providing safe working environments and high-quality training for employees are vital for InterMoor. This milestone highlights the extent of our commitment to safety and the professionalism of our staff. It was achieved with the participation of the entire workforce, from quayside support personnel to senior management.”
Throughout 2014, InterMoor UK Operations has renewed its focus on safety. Hazard identification, supervisory controls and management involvement have been top priorities.
Bruce Strachan, InterMoor UK Operations’ quality assurance and health, safety and environment manager, said: “Seven years without an LTI places InterMoor UK at the forefront of worldwide safety performance. Very few businesses of a comparable size have conducted operations for this length of time without recorded incidents. Of course, the aim is to continue the trend. Our target is, and will always be, zero accidents or incidents.
“The statistics for 2014 are particularly impressive. In addition to everyday operations, InterMoor has completed two huge projects in China, which have brought the total number of exposure (working) hours to about 500,000 for the year to date.”
