RBG Scores Safety Milestone at Trinidad and Tobago
RBG has recorded a significant safety achievement by completing more than 2,000,000 man-hours without a lost time incident across the company's Trinidad and Tobago operations.
The achievement marks another major milestone in the company's REACH safety program which, since its launch in December 2009, has played a major role in reducing Lost Time Incident Frequency (LTIF) by 38.5% globally. REACH aims to create a stronger, safer culture throughout RBG and in 2011 the initiative will expand to improve the company's full HSEQ remit.
In 2010, RBG's Trinidad and Tobago team was recognised for its contribution to Neal & Massy Wood Group's (NMWG's) achievement of 5,000,000 man-hours LTI free.
RBG's facilities in Point Lisas and Galeota employ approximately 430 personnel and offer the company's full range of innovative products and services including fabric maintenance, bolt torquing, fabrication and welding, scaffolding and habitat supply to the regional oil, gas and petrochemical industry.
RBG's Trinidad and Tobago country manager, Ricardo Mahadeo said, "I am very proud of our employees and we are delighted to have reached such a significant milestone. Reaching more than 2,000,000 hours without an LTI is testament to the commitment of our team to highlight and eliminate risk from our operation. It is a remarkable accomplishment and we will continue to work hard to maintain the high safety standards we have set.
"REACH has helped us achieve these excellent levels of safety by engraining good safety practice as a normal part of our daily working lives."
RBG's Group HSEQ director, Mike Mann, said, "The commitment demonstrated by our Trinidad and Tobago employees to achieve this goal is a tremendous example of the RBG safety culture we are striving for. This represents the best of our company in terms of leadership, engagement, communications, and commitment to achieving safety excellence."
