Hatch has developed three tools to ensure that safety principles and training are given the priority they need to provide a no-harm environment on projects, in the office, and at home.
Working Together Safely is Hatch’s main tool for training staff and partners in how to deliver The Hatch Way of safety to our people and projects.
The Hatch Safety Web is the primary tool used to access safety information such as policies, procedures, references and guidelines.
Hatch’s iPas SM (Safety Management) is the application that project teams use to manage health and safety. iPas SM is our single source for consolidated reports of our current safety performance on projects.
Over the past five years Hatch’s annual hours worked globally have jumped from 20 million to more than 50 million, yet the company’s lost-time injury frequency (LTIF) has maintained a rate of just 0.06 for every 200,000 project hours worked.
In Brazil Hatch and its local partners completed a two-million-tonne-per-year expansion of the Alumar alumina refinery and celebrated 20 million work-hours without a recordable incident.
In Alberta, Canada Hatch has won the Best Safety Performer Award five years in a row.
In South Africa, Hatch achieved a record of zero lost-time injury incidents in five million work-hours over a period of three years.
The Ngqura container terminal, a Transnet project, in South Africa, recently announced that its safety program, designed and managed by Hatch, also reached three million work-hours without a lost-time injury.
Phase B of the Anglo Platinum Converter Process in Rustenburg, South Africa, had 1.2 million work-hours with no lost-time injuries, despite it being a congested site with project activity on several floors.
Safety is a priority on all Hatch projects.
