Kraken Sails Towards Four Years Without a Lost Time Incident
Message from John Vingoe, HSEQ Manager for Seajacks.
Here at Seajacks we have a huge emphasis on safety, which due to the complex and dangerous nature of our work is vital. As a company we boast an outstanding lost time incident record. The Kraken, which was Seajacks’ first vessel and launched in 2009, has a perfect record since delivery and is currently at 1441 days. Fast approaching four years without an LTI.
This achievement is due to the hard work by all of those onboard the vessel and at our Head Office in Great Yarmouth who strive to make their working environment as safe as possible. From day one, the Kraken has made full use of the Seajacks Hazard Observation Card system, which is undoubtedly a crucial factor in their excellent safety record. The same can be said of the Leviathan which has exceeded three years and so far reached 1177 days since their last lost time incident. The Zaratan, only launched last year has already reached 251 days and if they continue to work in the safe manner they currently are, we are confident they will reach the impressive milestone of a year.
This has all been achieved by developing a strong safety culture. We have an open, honest reporting structure enhanced by a no blame policy, effective HazOb system and sharing of information. These records reflect the goals of Seajacks HSEQ Policy and its commitment to Health and Safety. We have a superb safety record but are very aware that complacency will put a swift end to this. With this in mind and to continue our exemplary record, safety is our priority, today and every day.
