Determined to uphold a record of accident-free operations, Midwestern Oil and Gas, has celebrated nine million hours of safety and hazard-free activities.
At a brief ceremony held simultaneously in Lagos and Kwale (Delta State), the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the company, Mr. Charles Oditah, noted that the achievement of the nine million man hours LTI-free milestone, was a proof that the company integrated HSE elements into the company’s projects and activities.
The company which has continued to maintain an impressive safety record in the industry has remained primed on accident-free operations.
Remarking on the feat, Oditah pointed out that “accidents are very costly and that is why we must continue to ensure that we operate safely and within the ambits of relevant regulations.”
He further challenged the workforce to even set higher standard stressing that the introduction of the e-learning HSE learning programme, “Enduring HSE Culture”, was a sure way the company expected its personnel to upgrade their knowledge on safety modules, promising that “management will continue to provide all necessary support resources-wise to aid us in achieving LTI-free operations.”
Many of the stakeholders who spoke at the event commended the management of the company for providing the support base on which the feat was accomplished, remarking that “Even though we are a local oil company, we operate on a global scene with our HSE records”.
One of the staff who spoke at the event thanked the management of the company for its quick responses on matters of safety and stressing that “safety matter is everybody’s business.”
Plaques and cash prizes were later awarded to some staff who distinguished themselves in their various departments s it concerns safety procedures.
