Specialist Services Group achieved another outstanding result in health and safety: six million man-hours of work in their facilities in Dubai and Abu Dhabi without any Lost Time Injury (LTI). This significant and remarkable milestone has been reached in the period between February 2015 and July 2016, during which there have been no recordable cases of LTI in their yards and offices.

Kirankumar Nagare, QHSE manager at Specialist Services said: "We have invested in numerous initiatives to protect people and ensure that they understand the importance of working safely and in an environmentally friendly manner. Leaders at all levels within the organisation have shown great commitment in developing and enhancing a positive HSE culture, which was essential to achieving this important result".

This achievement is a result of a constant focus on HSE improvements at Specialist Services over the past six years, including the introduction of the company’s HSE management system complying with OHSAS 18001 and ISO: 14001.

"This achievement in safety amongst our workers is a result of many efforts, including educational awareness and training programmes, seeking feedback, promoting best practice, and yes, on occasion, disciplining non-conformance," said Ian Rogers, CEO at Specialist Services.

With one of the Specialist Services core values being to pursue quality and safety in all aspects of their work, this achievement represents a further confirmation of the exceptional working environment.

"It is truly about having the right attitude, commitment, and our employees’ care for themselves and for others, for their tools, the environment, and the work they produce," concluded Ian Rogers.
