KBR Celebrates Key Safety Milestone at Dyno Nobel Project Site
HOUSTON, TX KBR, Inc. announces it is surpassing 3 million work hours without a Days Away from Work Incident at the Dyno Nobel ammonia plant construction site in Waggaman, Louisiana. Although this is not the first such achievement for KBR, the logistical and schedule challenges associated with this particular project make it a significant milestone demonstrating our commitment to Zero Harm to people, property and the environment.
"KBR fosters an interdependent safety culture in which all employees are expected to make safety conscious decisions that are governed by personal values," said Nick Anagnostou, KBR Vice President of Health, Safety, Security and the Environment. "Everyone truly realizes that an injury incident is not a statistic but rather a person who has been negatively affected."
Every new KBR employee receives rigorous training on the Zero Harm safety culture which emphasizes the importance of an incident-free work environment and peer to peer intervention is embraced across the organization for all safety related matters.
At the Dyno Nobel site, KBR's commitment to Zero Harm is reinforced with daily and weekly site meetings, toolbox safety meetings and award recognition for employees, which all stress the importance of a safe work culture.
"We have made Zero Harm the foundation of our corporate values," said Stuart Bradie, KBR President and CEO. "KBR makes it a priority to see our employees go home safely on a daily basis and it is our responsibility to provide a working environment that empowers all employees to speak up about safety."
"Our aim is to keep all of our people on the IPL Dyno Nobel Ammonia Plant safe, and to ensure our culture of Zero Harm for everyone, every day is fully embedded across every activity undertaken," said James Fazzino, IPL Managing Director and CEO. "It is our priority to make sure our people are safe while working on our project and it is especially pleasing to be working with KBR, a company who shares the same safety values as the IPL Group."
As a cornerstone in the ammonia industry for more than 60 years, KBR's plants are recognized around the world for delivering safe, low-cost, reliable performance. In all, KBR has been involved in the licensing, design, engineering and/or construction of more than 230 ammonia facilities.
