In many companies, safety is considered an add-on – a feature that is ‘nice to have’, when time and money are available.
At BWSC, our approach is different. Power plants and construction sites require vigilance and commitment to safety procedures, since negligence can ultimately result in serious or fatal injuries.
Despite operating in such diverse regions as Northern Europe, West Africa, and the Caribbean, we have been able to keep our lost time injury frequency (LTIF) at 2.4 – among the lowest in the industry.
The key reason is that the very top of the organisation prioritises safety.
Site managers are likewise required to enforce quality, health, safety and environment (QHSE) regulations.
And while we of course prioritise the well-being of our employees, studies show that prioritising safety has the additional benefit of actually improving an organisation’s efficiency.
