Statistics and Highlights

The health and safety of personnel is a key focus area and a core value within Lamprell and on an annual basis Lamprell publishes a range of leading and lagging HSES indicators to help drive HSES improvement within the business. Each year we set strategic objectives, KPI targets and key deliverables. Our Total Recordable Injury Rate (“TRIR”) in 2015 was 0.31 which is considered industry leading and a statistic we are truly proud of.

2016 was another successful year for health and safety performance at Lamprell. Employees completed 61,152 safety observation cards throughout the year and our hand injury awareness campaign reduced the number of hand injuries by 51% compared with the previous year. Our yard safety records reached further significant milestones, the Jebel Ali and Dubai facilities achieved four years without a DAFWC and the Sharjah yard completed 9.8 million manhours and three years without a DAWFC. These statistics demonstrate the importance of safety within our business.

We successfully completed third party recertification for OHSAS 18001, an internationally recognised safety standard at all operational facilities. The ongoing success of the HSE performance of the Company was achieved through a combination of enterprise-wide behavioral management safety campaigns which were run throughout the year. Campaigns in 2016 raised risk-awareness around ‘working at heights’, ‘dropped objects’, ‘hand safety’, ‘safe summer working’, ‘simultaneous operations’ and ‘lifting and crane operations safety’.

Hazard Identification (HAZID) workshops were also conducted throughout the year for each project and comprehensive occupational health and safety audits were carried out. We also implemented a robust health screening regime for all yard personnel with 95% of all workers completing screening tests for chronic and acute health disorders. In addition, both the Sharjah and Hamriyah medical clinics underwent significant refurbishments and were inspected and approved by the Sharjah Ministry of Health.
