Having awarded a difficult task, for the Installation of the Conveyors System at Wharf area in to
complete, which was awarded to <COMPANY>, during the middle of the phase 2, project with a very tight
schedule and to work in conjunction with the operation activities.
The job was a big challenge to our EHS department as well as to our production team to complete it on
the time scheduled, where we faced many challenges for carrying out many critical lifting activities and
interfacing other operation issues, which we successfully completed the project by following all the site
specific plans and procedures without having any major incidents.

INTRODUCTION AND BACKGROUND
(Define the problem. Describe the situation before. Show evidences).
The Installation of the Conveyors System at the Wharf area in , which was awarded to us, was started
before by other mechanical contractor where they had left the project in the middle without completion.
When <COMPANY> was re-awarded this project, we built up our strong team of competent people,
dividing them in separate groups, and giving then the responsibilities of each work area in section by
section and represented with one full time dedicated EHS personal in each section area.

4.
DESCRIPTION
(Describe the initiative or project activities and methodology).
The initiative what we took to complete the project is by organizing the correct type of resources what
were necessary, carrying out regular site inspections and by providing the necessary task training to our
people which was done externally through approved third party and also carried out internally (in-house)
on site.
The day to day activities were started with the daily supervisors meeting chaired by the project team
leader by briefing them on identifying the task hazards and how to mitigate those hazards by
implementing and complying with all the site specific EHS procedures and by following the approved
method statement and risk assessment.
Apart from the external and internal training, the project management team had also provided many
special training campaigns for our people on the job site as listed below, which were much effective to
avoid any incident on site.

To protect the environment, we were committed to safe guard our laydown from any ground
contamination and other atmospheric harms; and to protect this we had properly planned the storage
areas and handling of the hazardous substances by arranging correct facilities as per the required site
specific procedures. (i.e. COSHH materials storage; diesel storage area, segrted of waste skips; etc)

that the results demonstrate safety excellent outcome; outline any ongoing partnerships and how these
will be maintained; highlight the commitment to safety excellence; and demonstrate how innovation and
leadership have resulted in sustainable Safety performance).
The task training which was provided to all the employees during the execution of the project was very
much effective where they learned the safe methods and technique for working safely and what are the
relevant necessary precautions to be taken to avoid any incident.
Our site senior management was fully committed giving their extensive support on all the issues arising
towards Environmental, Health and Safety on site and encouraging all task Supervisors to give more
importance and to check and arrange the required necessary resources to complete the job safely.
Also <COMPANY> have implemented an EHS incentive scheme which is organize on monthly basis, where

taking care of themselves and also of others too, by working safely and to prevent incident / accident, to
identify hazards and reporting of all the near misses and also to safe guard the environment where they
are working.

maintained in the future.)
By learning a lot from previous projects our employees are fully committed to complying with EHS
procedures and sharing the same knowledge at other sites where they are now assigned to and also
guiding fellow employees to work safely and to protect the environment.
It is our duty to improve the facilities that we have at site in our laydown areas to comply with any new
site procedures or environment requirements.
Our management team is fully committed to provide the required personnel protective equipment, tools
and welfare facilities at site.
Our objectives are to fully comply with relevant legislation including current EHS regulations and codes of
practice.
The monthly EHS incentive scheme is still kept alive, either our employees are working at any site or in the
workshop; the selection for the Safety Man of the Month is done on the set criteria and they are
rewarded with fabulous gifts and a certificate.

Overall, we will always aim to improve from lessons that are learnt by ourselves or other contractors who
are also involved with similar work and by the client.
