The safety milestone complements the company’s commitment to workplace safety, which includes the adoption of strict safety standards, procedures and systems.
In June this year, Douglas OHI recorded 15 million safe hours on the project, Construction Week reported.
Speaking about the milestone, general manager at Douglas OHI, Aaron Hennessy, said: “This is a significant accomplishment for Douglas OHI, and it’s another example of the good outcomes that can result from the efforts of our entire workforce practising our safety culture.”
On a site level, we value the everyday procedures from toolbox talks that focus on daily job tasks and associated hazards and risks, and the daily team and individual-based field level risk assessments. This achievement clearly demonstrates our commitment to ensuring that everybody goes home safe.”
Corporate health safety security and environment (HSSE) manager, Peter Baker, said: “This is a great achievement by all involved and a testament to our people-focused safety programme.”
Douglas OHI recently celebrated the third consecutive Gold Global Health and Safety Award from The Royal Society For The Prevention Of Accidents (RoSPA). Organisations receiving a RoSPA Award are recognised as being world-leaders in health and safety practice.
