“Accidents can alter a family’s life forever. We have a shared responsibility to all employees to return them home to their families safely.
At INTEGRA we believe in providing quality services and products that deliver zero-accidents, zero-defects, and zero delays.
I want to recognize and offer my gratitude to all for achieving zero-accidents in 2016 and marking a milestone of three years of zero recordable accidents in the United States.
Our responsibility for safety extends from our employees to our co-workers in the field to our customers and to the public.
At INTEGRA Technologies, everything we do, we believe ensures the ongoing safety and reliability of the energy-infrastructure that serves society.
A common safety slogan is: ‘safety is no accident’ safety occurs by deliberate intention, design of products and processes, training of people, and the will of action! Enabling us to return home safely each and every day!
INTEGRA Technologies ‘good-catch near-miss’ and ‘on-site auditing’ programs were put in place to bring awareness to all potential dangers by watching and reporting unsafe conditions and adhering to policies.
This has benefited the employees and other co-workers in our industry.
Added to this success, we’ve seen zero-recordable accidents across all of our business units.
Field execution requires use of our hand-tools to pull and grab and twist and hold and manipulate. Hand injuries make up fifty percent of all injuries in the energy industry.
The US bureau of labor statistics report 186,000 occupational hand-injuries per year! Resulting in lost time.
Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) is critical to protecting hands! At INTEGRA we remember that PPE is the last line of defense.
Our first line of defence is training on the safe use of all equipment we use to perform our jobs!
INTEGRA continues to invest in improving and implementing new safety strategies and providing specialized training-programs to all of our employees as well as our contractors and customer personnel across North America.
INTEGRA also recognizes the industry demand for hands-free tools and in response: INTEGRA’s engineered products as part of our Protect Your Hands Program, have designed and introduce revolutionary technologies, such as the Velocity Washer™, BlackHawk™ Nuts, and Talon™ ART Tensioners, allowing for hands-free bolting. Reducing and eliminating hand pinch-points.
Staff were encouraged to continue to eliminate distractions, pay close attention to the job at hand and continue to return home safely to your families.
Thank you to all of our employees, particularly our field-technicians working long hours and in harsh conditions, for your continued focus to achieve our goal of zero-accidents!”
