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.
