LABUAN SHIPYARD SURPASSES 13 MILLION MAN HOURS WITHOUT LOST TIME INJURY
Labuan Shipyard and Engineering Sdn Bhd (LSE) has achieved a major safety milestone in the shipyard engineering construction industry by achieving more than 13 million Man Hours without Lost Time Injury (LTI) since 2009.
Chief Operating Officer, Azizul Hanafee Mohd Zain, said that this safety accomplishment was a testament to the stringent Health, Safety and Environment standards adopted by LSE at its yard.
“Safety is our number one priority and it is ingrained into our work culture. It is our overall safety mission to reduce total recordable case frequency (TRCF) by 10% every year. We are committed in ensuring that every employee, subcontractor and those involved with our projects are assured of a safe and healthy work environment,” he said.
He said that LSE constantly conducts safety training which is mandatory for all at its yard to inculcate the importance of a safe workplace environment for its employees.
“We do not compromise the welfare of our employees. It is our policy to conduct all business in compliance with the acts and legislations of federal and state health, safety, security and environment regulations such as OSHA 1994, EQA 74, FMA 67 and Petroleum Act 84 among others,” he added.
LSE’s safety standards and practices are acknowledged by Bureau Veritas Quality International (BVQI) which awarded it the ISO 9001:2008 for its quality management system and the OHSAS 18001:2007 accreditation on 24 November 2011. LSE is also expecting to be certified to ISO 14001:2004: Environmental Management System before the end of the year.
