InterMoor UK Operations Achieves Five-Year Safety Milestone

Press Release
Tuesday, November 20, 2012

InterMoor UK Operations, part of Acteon’s foundations and moorings business, has operated for more than five years without a lost time incident (LTI).

 

InterMoor UK Operations includes Acteon companies InterMoor Ltd, InterMoor Marine Services Ltd and ChainCo. This is an extremely significant achievement for a business that has conducted more than 2,000 projects during the period from three bases, five storage yards and numerous quayside locations in the UK and internationally.


“A five-year LTI-free safety record is a tremendous success when your daily operations routinely involve handling equipment varying in size and weights up to 260 tons in some of harshest work environments worldwide,” said Alan Duncan, managing director of InterMoor UK Operations. “We are very proud of this achievement which places InterMoor at the top of the industry.”


ChainCo, InterMoor UK Operations’s inspection arm, has handled more than 27,000 tons of chain for inspection and more than 12,000 tons of new chain in the last year alone. On average, InterMoor UK Operations’s mooring rental department moves about 3,000 tons of mooring equipment per month over the quay side.


InterMoor UK Operations has clear policies and legal and moral obligations that require it to implement and maintain an effective health, safety and environment management system. All staff members are held accountable for ensuring that health, safety and environmental regulations, policies and procedures are followed. This milestone was achieved with the participation of the entire workforce, from quayside support personnel to senior management, and as a result of InterMoor’s robust safety culture.


Bruce Strachan, InterMoor UK Operations quality assurance and health, safety and environment manager, said, “We have always had the strongest commitment to internal and external safety training. Five years – that’s more than 1.1 million man hours – LTI-free represents a superb team effort and places InterMoor UK at the forefront of worldwide safety performance. Very few businesses of comparable size have conducted operations for this length of time without recorded incidents. Our aim is to continue the trend. Our target is and always will be zero accidents or incidents.”


InterMoor UK Operations is certified to ISO9001:2008, ISO14001:2004 and OHSAS18001:2007. ChainCo is certified to ISO9001:2008 and DNV Approved Supplier No 413.
