Sandvik marks new safety milestone

SANDVIK Mobile Crushers & Screens is marking a safety milestone after going 1,000 days without a lost time incident.

The manufacturer revealed its employees have worked two years, eight months and 27 days without any lost time injury, which is a measure of monitoring incidents that result in an employee missing work due to an injury or accident in the workplace.

Sandvik’s milestone covers the firm’s global operations, which include offices, fabrication sites, warehouses and workshops in the UK, USA and India.

The company added that it has ‘multiple’ schemes in place to ensure safety remains at the heart of the business, including observation systems, regular training, toolbox talks and health and safety focus campaigns.

Andy McCullock, president mobile crushing & screening, said, “I would like to express my thanks to each and every member of the team, without whose individual contributions it would not have been possible to achieve this milestone. We will continue to work together for ‘Zero Harm’. At a time where our health and wellbeing are top priority, it is fantastic to know that our own teams have achieved such a positive milestone. Congratulations to all our colleagues for keeping each other, our customers, and the machinery we support safe. What a great milestone to accomplish in 2021!”
