LNG production company Atlantic has hailed its new Fatigue Risk Management system as a key success factor for the company’s injury-free safety performance during its maintenance outages for 2012. For the three major maintenance outages which Atlantic conducted in 2012, the company achieved zero Lost Time Injuries and zero Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) Recordable Incidents. This maintenance performance contributed to Atlantic’s accomplishment last year of a safety record of 19 million man hours worked to date without a serious safety incident.
Speaking recently at the annual Energy Conference, Stephen McShine, Atlantic’s Maintenance Outage Manager highlighted Atlantic’s Consecutive Working Period Policy, an important aspect of the Fatigue Risk Management System. Under the Policy, Atlantic employees who have worked during maintenance outages are entitled to one (1) compensatory day off for every seven (7) consecutive days or nights worked, with no employee being allowed to work in excess of 14 consecutive days or nights without having at least one (1) mandatory day off.
