GIOVENCO RECOGNISED BY CLIENT FOR EXCELLENT SAFETY RECORD DURING PERIOD OF HIGH PRODUCTIVITY
In a recent Caltex (Lytton) publication, “2015 Event Update,” Giovenco teams on the Caltex Lytton site have been publicly praised for their exceptional safety record, while being highly productive, in the lead up to a major shutdown on the Caltex site.
Supervisors Tony Hosking and Jason McGregor and their team were recognised and congratulated for their work on a scaffold structure. The “loading bay” was purpose built, consisting of 75 x 1.2m bays with the capacity to take a maximum load of 45 tons across the working deck. They built the entire structure without incident or injury, and the team were praised for “taking the time to do it right,” with excellent results.
It was stated that, “the team have really demonstrated the Caltex tenets, and they were noted for:
· Assessing the risks involved in working in the refinery, around active, operational units and roadways;
· Analysing how to reduce risks and ensuring the team and others were safe; and
· Acting in such a way that demonstrated they were embracing the “Incident and Injury Free” mindset, to get the job done.
Congratulations to Tony, Jason and their crew for demonstrating such good leadership and being acknowledged for this.
In addition to the accolades noted above, the Giovenco Turnaround Team were congratulated for their work erecting the scaffold for work on “7C-8.” One hundred tons of scaffold was erected, Incident and Injury Free. To add some perspective to this:
· An elephant weighs 3-6 tons
· A fully-laden oil tanker weighs approx. 50-60 tons.
· Some commercial aeroplanes (empty) weighs approx. 100 tons.
That is a lot of scaffold.
In the “2015 Event Update,” the team were congratulated for “setting the bar high for other teams to follow.” In the publication, Caltex also stated, “We commend the Giovenco Turnaround team for their effort to date, erecting an amazing total of 567 tons of scaffold for the 2015 Event, to date.”
