Salamis Reaches Safety Milestone

Salamis Group Ltd., an international support services contractor, said that its Environmental Services department has achieved 5 years without a lost-time incident (LTI). The Aberdeen, U.K.-based company's employees reached the milestone while working on both onshore and offshore contracts for major clients in the oil and gas industry.

In the last five years, Salamis' 140-strong team has decontaminated more than 1,000 production tanks and vessels of varying shapes and sizes. In addition, other core activities during this period included high-pressure (HP) and ultra-HP water jetting applications such as cold cutting, surface preparation, chemical cleaning, and LSA decontamination.

Brian Swankie, Salamis project manager, said that being LTI-free for 5 years is an exceptional achievement. “Given the hazardous nature of the work carried out by the Environmental Services team, to achieve 5 years without incurring an LTI is great credit to the commitment and quality of supervision and operatives," he said. "Another contributory factor has been the extensive training program both internally and externally, and our ongoing competency achievement."
