LATEST NEWS: Claxton achieves six years without lost-time incident
Claxton, an Acteon company, has reached a milestone of six years without a single lost-time incident (LTI). This is when an employee, as a result of an injury, is unable to perform their regular duties for one full shift or more.
The company operates worldwide, both on and offshore and has main bases in the UK and Middle East.
Nathan Darnell, Claxton’s QA Manager, is taking on the role of Head of QHSSE with effect from August 2018. With 10 years’ quality, health and safety experience, four of those gained with Claxton, Nathan is well equipped to take on the challenge.
Nathan said; “it sounds cheesy, but health and safety really is at the heart of everything we do, and this has been reflected by us achieving another consecutive year LTI free. Managing the activity risks of a global workforce is a significant challenge, especially when client’s ever-changing requirements are factored in. Claxton has adapted to the way the industry is evolving whilst remaining risk focused across the varied industrial locations and complex activities that the workforce is involved in.”
Peter Carrier, who will be handing over the reins to Nathan, added; “It’s important that we take the time to thank our staff for their diligence which has been key to us achieving this significant milestone. Their participation in safety, whether at our location or on a clients’, has been exceptional and their high regard for this is frequently commented on.”
Peter continued, “This event has not just realised itself, it has taken time, effort, and masses of deliberation and sometimes a self-acknowledgement that perhaps we could have done it better. This sums up our ethos of continuous improvement to quality, health and safety, and environment (QHSSE). Whilst we can step back and pat ourselves on the back, there is still a journey ahead of us where QHSSE at Claxton will continue to evolve.”
