ORYX GTL is committed to instil a zero-compromise culture of health and safety practices both in the workplace. It has taken this to another even higher level recently with the announcement of an impressive, new milestone reached which exceeds previous safety records
The Company recorded a Total Recordable Incidence Rate (TRIR) of just 0.05, the lowest figure achieved since the plant commenced operations, whilst simultaneously achieving over 200 days without a recordable injury on 12 March 2012.
TRIR is a key safety metric which measures the rate of recordable workplace injuries per 200,000 man-hours. This means, for example, that on personal level, a TRIR of 0.5 is equivalent to having a single incident in forty five years.
Since the beginning of 2011, ORYX GTL’s TRIR has consistently improved (see graph), a testament to the dedication of both employees and contractors to ensure safe working practices and working environments.
ORYX GTL encourages its employees to take individual and collective responsibility for safety issues that affect them and their colleagues at work and at home. Third-party contractors have also played an important part in these successes, and were also recognized by the Company.
Though such a low TRIR is commendable, ORYX GTL believes the only objective must now be zero TRIR, and is making every effort towards reaching and maintaining this objective.
