20 years LTI free in Jakarta
Boart Longyear commits to protecting the health and safety of our employees, contractors, and visitors at all of our sites and facilities. We also commit to protect the environment and the communities in which we operate.
As a statement of that safety commitment, the entire staff of the Jakarta office recently celebrated 20 years of being LTI (lost time injury) free.
Jakarta employees say they are committed to keeping this achievement going for many, many more years. It is a good reminder to all of us that this achievement is more than a number; it represents our people making it home to their families safe and sound.
Boart Longyear’s safety programs are designed to address the critical risks our employees encounter and keep them safe. There are multiple programs in place, such as the THINK safety program, and the Golden Rules of Safety.
The THINK safety program instills in staff to never make any task menial and to always “THINK” before they act.
THINK is an acronym for:
Take the time
Identify the risk
Necessary controls applied
Keep safety first
The Golden Rules of Safety address critical risks that Boart Longyear employees face every day. Each Golden Rule is built with an accountability statement that each employee must commit to in every task.
1. FITNESS FOR DUTY
I will never perform tasks if impaired, unfit or distracted, with no exceptions.
2. COMPETENCY AND TRAINING
I will never perform tasks for which I am not capable, competent or authorized.
3. SAFETY CONTROLS
I will never bypass, modify or remove safety controls.
4. PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE)
I will never perform tasks without appropriate and approved PPE.
5. CORRECT TOOLS AND EQUIPMENT FOR THE JOB
I will never misuse tools or equipment or modify their design without the Engineering Department’s approval.
6. FALL RISKS
I will never work at heights without using appropriate fall prevention or fall protection controls.
7. ENERGY HAZARDS
I will never work on energized equipment without appropriate controls and will never use an unrestrained wrench under power.
8. RESPONSIBILITY FOR OTHERS
I will never knowingly allow others to violate these Golden Rules and will use my Stop Work Authority when I see them violated.
