The International Association of Dredging Companies (IADC) has just revealed another nominee for its Safety Award 2017 – Royal IHC’s 4 Points of Attention Plan.

To improve daily safety operations on its shipyards, Royal IHC tasked a multi-disciplinary team of representatives from senior and operational management, the work floor and Safety Department with identifying high-risk working areas:

  • safe working at height on scaffolding;
  • orderliness and cleanliness by proper housekeeping;
  • safe use of certified tools and equipment;
  • personal protective equipment compliance.

Entitled the 4 Points of Attention Plan, a policy of weekly assessments covering these four areas was issued company-wide.

“Employees must individually assess the week’s performance – on a scale of one (poor) to ten (excellent) – in advance of an operational meeting held every Friday. By 7:30am on Monday morning, an individual must implement all discussed changes which are then checked by the Safety Department for compliance and finally the results are reported to senior management,” IADC said in its announcement.

Based on the reduction of incidents, the desired result of increased safety awareness and an instilled culture of individual accountability and responsibility were produced by the weekly assessment process motivated by its reward system.
