Tanjung Bin New Coal Unloading Jetty Project Celebrates 1 Million Safe Man Hours Without LTI
On 26 February 2019, the construction of Tanjung Bin New Coal Unloading Jetty (NCUJ), celebrated an achievement of clocking 1 Million Safe Man Hours Without Loss Time Injury (LTI). “HSE Compliance Is Loss Prevention” was chosen as the theme for the celebration that aimed to highlight the importance of good health and safety practices at the work place.
The event kicked off at noon whereby Malakoff staff and contractors gathered at the TBE Site Office to celebrate the momentous occasion. The event was also attended by En. Azhari Sulaiman, Senior Vice President of the Operation and Project Management Services Division of Malakoff and Mr. Wong Chin Sing, Project Director of the Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Commissioning (EPCC) Contractor. Sanny Abu Bakar, Project Manager of the NCUJ in his opening remarks, expressed his gratitude to fellow colleagues for their commitment and hard work. “Achieving 1 million safe man hours without LTI is a steep hill to climb, thank you to everyone for your continuous efforts in contributing to this achievement.”
For heavy machinery and civil engineering projects, the world standard for LTI is 13, however, Malakoff has managed to achieve a zero LTI rate for this project. This achievement shows that Malakoff has a good safety track record and matters pertaining safety are not taken lightly.
Last year in May, for the same project, the construction of the NCUJ was awarded 5 Stars for Safety and Health Assessment System in Construction (SHASSIC) rating by scoring 85% for an assessment on the level of health and safety in security. This was based on CIS (Construction Industry Standard) 10:2008 carried out by the Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB) representatives at the project site on 9 and 10 April 2018. The SHASSIC 5-star rating is rarely given in the construction industry and this signifies a high level of compliance with safety and health regulations at a work site.
The NCUJ, which started construction in 2017 is expected to be in operation on 6 March 2019. With the new jetty, an increase in the coal consumption of Tanjung Bin complex will be addressed and vessels ranging from 35,000 DWT to 178,000 DWT will be able to dock.
