Keppel Kicks Off Yard Safety Initiative

Keppel Shipyard Limited, the shiprepair unit of Keppel Corporation Limited through its wholly owned subsidiary, Keppel Offshore & Marine Limited (Keppel O&M), has launched a Safety Leadership Program.

Aimed at ensuring that safety practices are built into everyday work processes, this new program is the latest initiative by the yard to achieve an incident-free work environment.

The program reinforces and promotes safe work behavior through effective observation and intervention by supervisors. There are above 10,000 workers daily working at Keppel Shipyard and these workers are managed by the supervisors.

Mr Nelson Yeo, Executive Director of Keppel Shipyard, said, "Supervisors have direct contact and strong influence on changing workers' behavior. The Safety Leadership Program will also equip supervisors with effective observation and intervention skills. With these skills, supervisors will be able to coach and encourage workers to carry out their tasks in a safe manner."

Keppel, Single Buoy Mooring (SBM), and ExxonMobil have previously successfully executed two Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) projects, and they are collaborating on two similar FPSO projects right now.

Safety is a fundamental business practice for Keppel Shipyard. This practice is up held across the entire Keppel Group. Keppel Corporation has set up a Board Safety Committee to facilitate a common discussion platform for safety-related matters. Group companies have also implemented the practice of safety as the first item on the agenda for their board meetings. Keppel Shipyard has taken this a step further. The yard has ensured that safety is first on the agenda for all its operations meetings.

Keppel Shipyard is committed to create a safer and healthier workplace. The Safety Leadership Program (SLP) is a further enhancement of its Safety Plus Program, introduced in 2002. As safety involves the partnership and ownership of all stakeholders, Keppel Shipyard has introduced the Subcontractor Stewardship Program for its subcontractors. It has also successfully encouraged workers, with the support of workers' unions, to set up the Workforce Safety Council and Contractors' HSE Watch Groups.

Its customers such as ExxonMobil, SBM, Shell, Prosafe, Woodside, Petrobras and many others are also actively involved in the yard's safety program. Some of them including SBM and ExxonMobil are on board its Safety Steering Committee.

Keppel O&M is a global leader in offshore rigs and shiprepair and specialized shipbuilding. Combining the expertise and experience of its subsidiaries, Keppel FELS, Keppel Shipyard and Keppel Singmarine, the group's near market, near customer strategy is bolstered by a global network of 20 yards in the Asia Pacific, Gulf of Mexico, Brazil, the Caspian Sea, the Middle East and the North Sea regions. Integrating the experience and expertise of its yards worldwide, Keppel O&M aims to be a provider of choice and a partner in solutions for the offshore and marine industry.
