12 September 2016 - The Company is pleased to announce the Aggreko AusPac team has achieved the significant milestone of one million man-hours without a lost time injury (LTI), and this week marks a 2 year period without an LTI.

Aggreko is committed to sustaining a Zero Harm environment, and ensuring that safety is top of mind at all times, with the company motto “Safety for Life”.

This impressive achievement became a reality as a result of Aggreko's ongoing commitment to safety and through its stringent safety strategies, systems and processes, both internally, and externally.

The million man-hour record reflects Aggreko’s' commitment to creating a safe workplace by setting high safety standards and ensuring operational excellence.

"Aggreko does not compromise on safety; as a world class global power supplier, safety governs every aspect of how we do business. I am very proud of our impressive achievement and extend my congratulations to the AusPac team for making this incredible milestone possible" said George Whyte, Managing Director Aggreko AusPac.

Tasked with overseeing QHSE for the AusPac region, David Richards is dedicated to implementing and promoting safety across all Aggreko work sites, offices and depots. "A strong focus on identifying and controlling hazards, reducing exposure to health and safety risks, and supporting the general health and well-being of our team members has ensured we realised this milestone. It’s a team objective and one we wouldn’t have achieved, if not for the hard work and effort from all of our employees. It is the care that they display for one another that ensures everyone gets home without harm each and every day" Mr. Richards said.

The safety performance is a direct reflection of Aggreko’s ambition to be a role model in safety; setting high standards and continually improving safety performance, particularly with our customers and the communities in which we operate.

Zero incidents aims to completely eliminate all events that result in an injury, property damage, or lost workday case.

Safety must be an integral component of an overall business plan for any company. Safety controls must be designed into every aspect of a job, thereby promoting awareness and continuous improvement in the program. Zero incidents should be a company vision rather than a target or performance goal.
