ALE’s safety initiative proves a success
ALE’s in-house safety initiative has proved a real success for gaining insight and making improvements in the business, with several employees in ALE’s Global Projects Division (GPD) recognised for their contributions.
Every month, GPD recognises employees who have demonstrated or encouraged excellent HSQE behaviours. Each recipient receives a recognition certificate and is also awarded with a small prize.
GPD work on specialist long-term projects across the globe, including high profile operations like the recent award-winning Yamal LNG and Sakhalin projects. The safety awards have been running since 2015 and anyone working on a GPD project is eligible.
Awards can be given for positive and reactive initiatives, such as initiating a procedure for reporting defective tools, reporting an unsafe act on a ladder and ensuring that the ladder could be secured for future use, demonstrating the use of appropriate personal, protective equipment (PPE) at all times on site, taking responsibility to survey site ground and providing positive HSQE improvement suggestions.
To date, awards have been presented on projects in several countries, including Brazil, Belgium, Russia, Nigeria, and the UK.
