Keeping true to their commitment to safety, Keppel Infrastructure’s Operations & Maintenance team at the Domestic Solid Waste Management Centre (DSWMC) in Qatar achieved one million hours without lost-time incident (LTI) in October 2013.
The DSWMC is a landmark integrated waste management centre designed and built by Keppel Seghers to serve the domestic waste treatment needs for the whole of Qatar.
Mr Oon Ee Heng, GM of Operations & Maintenance at the DSWMC, said, “We are pleased to mark this achievement, which was only possible because our staff and subcontractors worked closely together and remained committed to safe work practices at all times. The management will continue to instill a safe work culture and maintain a safe work environment at the DSWMC. We look forward to many more LTI-free hours.”
Some of the ways in which safety is ingrained in the work culture at DSWMC include safety briefings, tool box sessions, promotion of safety awareness and rewards for safety initiatives.
