Sandvik Mobile Crushers & Screens have reached a major safety milestone with 1,000 days without a lost time incident. Our employees have worked 2 years, 8 months, and 27 days without any lost time injury, which is a measure of monitoring incidents that result in an employee missing work due to an injury or accident in the workplace.
Manufacturing engineering is traditionally a hazardous environment where heavy equipment and machinery parts are part of daily operations. This milestone covers our global operations, which include offices, fabrication sites, warehouses and workshops in the UK, USA and India.
Careful consideration of hazards is given throughout our business, and a commitment to embed a health and safety culture throughout – from our Centre of Excellence, Ballygawley, Northern Ireland to those who work on customer sites and everyone in-between. We have multiple schemes in place to ensure safety remains at the heart of our business, including observation systems, regular training, toolbox talks and health and safety focus campaigns.
Safety is #1 priority at Sandvik and our EHS vision is “Zero Harm.” Throughout this challenging year, we are committed to continuously driving safety improvements and have made significant efforts towards proactive measures based on recognizing and understanding risks, reinforcing our safety culture and most importantly – preventing accidents from happening.
President Mobile Crushing & Screening, Andy McCullock notes, ‘I would like to express my thanks to each and every member of the team, without whose individual contributions it would not have been possible to achieve this milestone. We will continue to work together for “Zero Harm”.’ At a time where our health and wellbeing are top priority, it is fantastic to know that our own teams have achieved such a positive milestone. Congratulations to all our colleagues for keeping each other, our customers, and the machinery we support safe. What a great milestone to accomplish in 2021!
