4 years no lost time accidents

Posted on 11 November 2014

Health and safety is at the forefront of our business, we care about and watch out for one another. We want to make sure all our employees go home safe to their families every day. Employees have worked four consecutive years with no lost time due to an accident or injury. The quarrying industry defines a “lost time” accident as a work-related accident or injury that results in an employee having to take time off from work. If an employee is able to return to work under restricted duty or is reassigned because of the injury, it is not considered a lost time incident.

“We place a high priority on safety because safe work practices can mean the difference between life or death,” says Simon McDowell Kilwaughter Chemical Co. Ltd’s Managing Director.

This is a huge achievement for the company, especially within the quarrying industry, a dangerous one. Credit for this success is given to our employee’s dedication to the ‘Target Zero’ scheme. Employees have demonstrated a superior level of safety by reaching four years without a lost-time accident and this proves that all employees are committed to one another’s safety.
