Mangan achieves 2,000,000 safe hours worked without a single OSHA recordable injury or illness
Long Beach, CA – July 31, 2014 – Mangan sets new safety record
Today, Safety Management at Mangan Inc. is pleased to share a safety milestone. We have successfully worked 2,000,000 hours without an OSHA recordable injury or illness. Generally, a recordable injury or illness under OSHA is an injury that requires medical treatment beyond first aid, or one that causes days away from work, restricted work or transfer to another job, loss of consciousness, or death.
OSHA also cites lost time and modified work due to a work related injury or illness as a recordkeeping guideline. It should be mentioned that Mangan Inc. has not had an incident with lost time or modified work in over a decade.
Some of us here at Mangan Inc. have heard the comment that an engineering company has little exposure to workplace hazards, making this seem like an insignificant accomplishment. To shed a little light on our brand of engineering services: during any given day, approximately 40% of the Mangan engineering workforce is in the ‘field.’ These field environments can involve highly hazardous and explosive chemicals, bio-hazardous materials, pressurized equipment, live exposed electrical components, working from heights, working in construction environments, and working on projects that require intense deadline schedules. If we consider office work and the risks of soft tissue injuries, those working at their desks writing and drawing are a significant exposure to injury as well.
To illustrate the enormity of Mangan’s accomplishment: it would take 3 individuals a total of 76 years to have collectively lived for 2,000,000 hours.
Mangan Inc. considers safety as a priority, right in step with quality. There is a top-down mentality when it comes to leaders setting an example for their staff. This cause for celebration should be considered as more than just a stroke of luck. It is not a safety program that has enabled us to achieve this goal, but an employee community that has created an environment where it is safe to express their concerns for unsafe conditions; our employees do not hesitate to communicate unsafe conditions or observations to their co-workers, clients, and other contractors. There are many examples of employees putting aside project schedules to ensure safe work practices are followed.
Please join us in appreciating this safety milestone.
