Trukai Industries has achieved a safety milestone of 1, 000 days or six million man- hours Loss Time Injury (LTI) free.
This demonstrates the company’s commitment to the safety of its employees in ensuring a safe workplace is provided, safe systems and controls are in place, effective training for its people facilitated by qualified, and that certified trainers are ongoing to ensure work is conducted safely with a zero-harm compliance.
This has seen the last LTI recorded back in 2020.
Trukai Industries’ General Manager for Operations, Risk and Corporate Services, David Newton commended employees for this achievement, stating that a zero Loss Time Injury (LTI) measure for 1000 days is a huge achievement for the business.
This, he says, demonstrates how important safety is at Trukai Industries as the company has a very high safety standard with a positive safety culture across the business.
Through several proactive measures, the company not only maintains a safe working environment, but also ensures that safety systems and controls to identify hazards are working to minimize employee risks.
“Some of the actions to implement controls that address identified hazards include the provision of suitable PPEs, employee attendance of comprehensive safety trainings, encouragement to achieve a safe working environment through employee recognition for staff members who identify and report potential risks or hazards.”
“Other actions include conducting annual audits and inspections to identify new or persisting hazards and risks and securing ownership and compliance from senior management to assist in fostering a culture of Safety First and transparency within the company.”
These he says are all proactive actions along with their leading and lagging indicators in which they are proud of in driving compliance throughout their business.
Ina addition, Trukai Industries’ Chief Executive Officer, Alan Preston also encouraged employees to maintain the Trukai safety culture.
“It is the responsibility of each individual employee to continue to maintain these high safety standards by ensuring we all work safely whilst complying with the controls that are in place. Our aim is to get our employees safe to their families every day.”
The 1000 days LTI free safety achievement follows Trukai Industries’ recertification for meeting a global standard for Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems under the ISO 45001:2018 standard in August 2022.
