ENGIE Solutions clocks in 10 million manhours without a lost time incident
Middle East, 11 February 2021: ENGIE Solutions, an international leader in sustainable energy services and asset management, has realized the outstanding achievement of 10 million manhours without a lost time incident across its Middle East operations. This success is testament to ENGIE’s commitment to its team members and their safety – something that has never been more important than in the last year.
As of December 2020, 10 million manhours were achieved without a lost time incident – an incident that results in an injury that causes an employee to miss work.
“The challenges of 2020 placed a mental toll on everyone, making focus more difficult because we were – and still are – distracted by what is going on in the world around us,” said Miles Webb, Chief Operations Officer at ENGIE Solutions. “Safety is always a priority for ENGIE, regardless of external circumstances. We instill in all of our colleagues how essential it is to remain focused on the job at hand and to consider their wellbeing above all else. Achieving 10 million manhours without a lost time incident is a record to be proud of, as well as being something that sets ENGIE apart for exceptional professional standards that place great value on our employees.”
Andre Mars, Head of QHSE at ENGIE Solutions, said: “ENGIE has rigorous health and safety procedures in place to ensure the wellbeing of our colleagues at all times. Regular drills and training keep these procedures top-of-mind, so that they are implemented in everything we do – whether that is work on-site or in our offices. The achievement of 10 million manhours without a lost time incident demonstrates that our strict policies clearly work to keep our people safe.”
ENGIE embraces the highest standards of health, safety and security for all employees, with the protection of individuals deeply embedded within the company’s DNA. Through its ‘No Life at Risk’ objective, ENGIE seeks to reduce the frequency and severity of accidents for its own employees and any subcontractor partners, with a target of zero fatal accidents.
