Sulzer Wood is celebrating a safety milestone, after the company recently recorded nine years without a lost time incident (LTI), equal to 1.5 million man hours.

Aberdeen-based Sulzer Wood delivers a range of pump services to the offshore industry and counts employee safety as of the highest importance.

“Our health and safety procedures are constantly reviewed to ensure that we manage all the risks in our day-to-day business as effectively as possible,” said Stuart MacVicar, HSEQ manager at Sulzer Wood. “From the latest apprentice to top management, everyone contributes to maintain our impressive safety record.”

The company’s service centre repairs and maintains pumps on site, as well as sending engineers to offshore locations to assist with the removal and installation of pump assets.

“Over the years, we have built up a culture of safe working practices, and this is supported by a comprehensive induction system for new employees and a competency management system that monitors progress,” added MacVicar. “Together with on-going training and regular team briefings, we ensure that everyone is aware of their responsibilities.”
