Boart Longyear announced a company-wide accomplishment of more than 10 million consecutive man-hours worked with no Lost Time Injuries (LTI) and one-year completely LTI-free, as of July 5. The company employs approximately 4,900 personnel including supervisors, drillers, driller assistants, mechanics, technicians, and welders, manufacturing plant personnel, distribution centers and warehouse personnel, and support staff.
In 2018, the company-wide lost-time incident rate (LTIR) matched an all-time low at 0.10 LTIR, and lowest number of LTI on record.
“I am incredibly proud of the employees at Boart Longyear,” said Jeff Olsen, president and CEO, Boart Longyear. Olsen acknowledged all of them for their hard work and for embracing the company’s high safety standards.
Boart Longyear has new, critical risk management programs and simplified company field standards. It said it focuses on safety programs like THINK (Take the time, Hazard recognition, Identify the risk, Necessary controls applied, and Keep safety first), Stop Work Authority (authorizes and mandates employees immediately stop any work that does not comply with safety standards), the Golden Rules of Safety, the Rules of the Road, and Make it Personal Cards with safety program basics, which inludes a signature for their commitment to work safely, and a place for a photo of why they are working safely.
