Boart Longyear's new critical risk management programs and simplified company field standards support employees in understanding, embracing, and practising an exceptional safety culture. The company focuses on safety programs like THINK (Take the time, Hazard recognition, Identify the risk, Necessary controls applied, and Keep safety first), Stop Work Authority (authorises and mandates employees immediately stop any work that does not comply with safety standards), the Golden Rules of Safety, the Rules of the Road, and Make it Personal Cards with safety program basics, a signature for their commitment to work safely, and a place for a photo of why they are working safely.
"I am incredibly proud of the employees at Boart Longyear. I acknowledge each one of them for their hard work, for embracing and living our high safety standards and world-class safety programs, and the way everyone takes responsibility for their own safety and keeping each other safe.
"This is a significant accomplishment for Boart Longyear and is a great outcome resulting from the efforts of everyone in the company living and breathing our safety culture," said president and CEO, Jeff Olsen. "I congratulate every Boart Longyear employee for this prestigious achievement."
Denis Despres, COO added: "On a site level, we value the everyday procedures from standardised pre-start information meetings that focus on daily job tasks and associated hazards and risks, our online data management system including the system's mobile app, and the daily team and individual-based field level risk assessments. At Boart Longyear, it is everyone's responsibility to work safely."
