Safety First Pays Off at Vallourec Canada in Newfoundland

19/05/2017 - Canada, Oil & gas
The intense involvement of all of our employees in our safety priorities and practices has helped us to overcome roadblocks and to break down barriers.

Vallourec Paradise NL Canada facility recently celebrated 26 months of No Lost Time Injuries. From February 16th 2015 to April 16th 2017, our shop and office staff have enjoyed being free of lost time injuries, and we are striving to maintain this accomplishment.

The growth of our Safety Culture has been steady over the last few years, and not without the challenges of changing ingrained mindsets and dangerous habits. However, the intense involvement of all of our employees in our safety priorities and practices has helped us to overcome roadblocks and to break down barriers. A key ingredient is to take the ideas generated by the staff with Observation Cards and during morning Operator Empowerment meetings, and act upon them quickly, demonstrating Vallourec's top priority is to provide a safe workplace.

With corporate guidance, our staff have implemented and embraced LOTO (Lockout/Tagout) and 5S programs that enable them to work safer and smarter. Our customers are aware of, and benefit from our Safety programs and accomplishments. Both our employees and our customers trust that we value our staff's well-being, and know that we uphold the highest standards in the industry. 

While it important to recognize the long term achievements with a staff celebration for the occasion, we are determined to instill in our teams that every day without an injury, is a win for everyone, and a terrific milestone for our facility.
