Quinn Contracting Ltd. Achieves One Million Hours Safety Record

Significant Milestone reached for Albertan Oilfield Services Company, employing a Zero Injury Strategy

BLACKFALDS, AB, Oct. 28, 2013 /CNW/ - Quinn Contracting Ltd. is proud to announce the achievement of working one million person hours without a recordable injury; and the hours are still adding up.

For Stan Good, Senior Director, Operations, who oversees Quinn's HSE department, the accomplishment demonstrates the success of Quinn's employee mentorship and unique programs. "Safety is our top priority at Quinn and it is deeply ingrained in our employee culture. Our employees watch out for themselves and for one another so that everyone can go home safely at the end of the day."

Quinn attributes the achievement to their industry-leading focus on safe work practices. In 2012, the HSE Department formalized a Behavioral Based Safety initiative which supports proactive, employee-ownership of safe behaviors. And while the 'Safety Fresh Start' program (held in January) is an expected industry-standard, Quinn expands upon this by holding an additional 'Fresh Start' in July. This creates another opportunity for employees to pause and recommit to safe-work practices. Initiatives such as this have also helped the company earn and maintain a World-Class Safety rating.

Injury-free hours are measured as those where all employees return from work in the same physical condition in which they arrived (without a first aid, recordable, or lost-time injury occurring).

The million injury-free hours was achieved on October 10, 2013. The good work has continued and to date, an additional 300,000 injury-free hours have been logged.
