2019...an outstanding year for safety

2019 realised a marked step change in how we strategically tackled our HSSEQ function.  Across the group we moved from a command control, retrospective focus to a proactive, lead indicator driven, intervention approach. Through implementing this change, our project teams were empowered to identify and target key trends relating directly to their scope of work. We embraced a partnering philosophy with both our internal and external clients and sub-contractors, which saw improved collaboration across our stakeholders and established us as leaders, not followers, in the HSSEQ category with our key clients. In 2019 Kentech completed 7.5 million manhours across the globe. 0.5 million hours less than 2018, however our projects are growing in complexity and geographical challenges. Execution excellence was achieved in our environmental performance with not only zero recordable events, but the successful roll out of a number of new initiatives both in our offices and on our project sites, reducing our environmental impact and increasing our local community involvement. The Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR) for 2019 was 0.4 for every million hours worked (IOGP) or 0.08 for 200,000 hours (OSHA), half that of the previous year and our best performance in the past 4 years. Further, this result validates strong performance against our competitors when measured against IOGP safety performance indicators of 0.99 for every million hours worked. A catalyst for continued success in 2020 will be our courage to lean into these new models, building on the foundations established in 2019.  We will strengthen our position with our key clients as leaders in the HSSEQ environment.  We will deliver our vision and commitment to be true partners, developing also a deeper collaboration with our subcontractors and sharing our outstanding culture and capabilities.

Kentech jumps ahead of the curve with ISO 45001 accreditation

We are delighted to announce, we have made the positive move to migrate to the new ISO 45001 for OHS Standard, being one of the first in our industry to achieve the full suite of ISO standards in Quality, OHS and Environment. In a firm demonstration of our commitment to safe, healthy and sustainable project execution, the move to ISO 45001 increases our organisational resilience through proactive risk prevention.  Although Kentech have always operated an Integrated Management System (IMS), this brings the three standards under one global system, strengthening our legal and regulatory compliance. Although launched in 2018, this standard will not become mandatory until 2021.  We recognised early that by migrating to this new standard, it allows us to align and integrate the ISO standards into a holistic management system which is world class.  This system will help us to deliver our ZeroIn promises and is a great demonstration of our K2 mind set of leading not following.

Kentech Zero's In on Environmental Stewardship

2019 for Kentech is about “Zero In", moving our focus and ensuring we are authentic about how we make an impact with our actions. HSE “Health Safety & Environment”, far too often the E becomes silent in HSE.

Individuals pledged their support for the planet, challenging world leaders to push the preservation of nature up the global agenda. This quarter, Kentech will bring the stories from our individuals and teams that demonstrate their passion and commitment to Environmental Stewardship.

It is with great pride that we can announce the Kentech team working on the Clean Fuels Project in Kuwait have now surpassed 5 Million Manhours LTI Free!   Reaching this magnificent milestone is a testament to every single person on the Kentech team, and shows the vigilance, focus and commitment that each and every member of our staff has with regard to their personnel safety and the safety of others.

2017 Annual WISER Award Winners Announced

We are delighted to announce that we have two WISER Winners for 2017.  Our first winner is, Mr Aquib Afrin. Aquib is a Safety Officer on the Clean Fuels Project in Kuwait and has shown amazing creativity and pro-activeness to increase safety awareness and the wellbeing of his co-workers. His initiatives have included the implementation of a heat stress flagging system, illuminated safety banners, a voice enabled mannequin, a ground penetration and excavation campaign (with the introduction of KentechMan!), installation of quarterly colour code awareness boards, a heat stress campaign and a heat stress 'conservatory' shelter, for which he received a special award from our client, FDH-JV. Aquib has also truly embraced the We Are Family campaign and the efforts he has taken to promote this with his colleagues has been second to none, with the implementation of a We Are Family banner which all the site team were invited to sign to show their commitment. He has also shown his musical abilities by developing videos and songs to share with the team on site promoting the Kentech family. Our second winner is Mr Gopakumar Gopinadhan, Assistant Electrician on the Nasr Full Field Development Project in the UAE. In addition to his strong set of behaviors on a daily basis, back in November of last year, Gopakumar noticed a burning rag as a result of some sparks from welders working at height and notified all of the team about the fire, enabling them all to get to the emergency assembly point safely. He then took a nearby fire extinguisher and successfully put the fire out. It takes courage to be willing to come forward and take initiative in these circumstances and the actions Gopakumar took on this day probably saved the lives of his coworkers. Sarah Kent recently visited both sites where these two exceptional employees work to present them with their awards and personally thank them for their actions. During her visits, she took the opportunity to speak to the whole site teams to stress the importance of safety and reiterate the 'We Are Family' message.  Both Aquib and Gopakumar will each enjoy an all expenses paid holiday for 2 to Dubai later this year. During her visit, Sarah also took the time to meet the whole site team as she was taken on a tour of the yard by Zaur Nadirli. She used the visit as an opportunity to stress the importance of safety and reiterate the 'We Are Family' message. Note: WISER is Kentech's Worker Involvement Safety Encouragement Award Scheme, a HSE incentive programme for employees to earn monthly, quarterly and annual safety awards.
