RBG, the leading provider of assess, inspect and repair (AIR) services to the global energy industry that was acquired by Stork Technical Services (Stork), has delivered an outstanding safety performance by significantly reducing its lost time incident frequency rate (LTIFR) for the second year running.

 

Since launching its award-winning REACH initiative in December 2009, RBG has demonstrated continual improvement in its safety performance by:
 

• Reducing its LTIFR in the UKCS by more than 35% in 2011, following on from a 51% reduction in 2010
• Reducing its global LTIFR by over 30% in 2011, following on from a 38% reduction in 2010
• Reducing its total recordable frequency rate, which includes LTIs, restricted work cases and medical treatment cases, in the UKCS by 55% and 40% globally in 2011

 

The positive impact of REACH on RBG’s safety performance has lead to Stork adopting the initiative, which will be rolled in Q1 2012 across its global operations in the UK, Central Europe, Asia-Pacific, Americas and Middle East. Doug Meikle, CEO for Stork Technical Services, said: “I would like to congratulate RBG on another excellent safety achievement. REACH has clearly had a very positive effect on the company’s safety performance and this was a significant factor in our decision to adopt the initiative across Stork Technical Services.”
