On May 31, 2017, Danos’ Fabrication Services celebrated a safety milestone: Eight years without an Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)-recordable incident. This record represents more than 1.2 million man-hours at the company’s facilities in Larose and Amelia, Louisiana.
“Eight years without an incident is a record we are all tremendously proud of,” said Eric Danos, executive vice president. “It’s the result of our company-wide dedication to putting safety at the heart of everything we do and constantly striving for improvement.”
Danos’ unwavering commitment to safety–one of the company’s core values–has produced a culture in which proper training and procedures are the bedrock of daily operations. Whether working on a large-scale offshore project or executing last-minute customer requests, Danos’ top priority is ensuring every team member is provided the tools, environment and knowledge that enables them to work safely every day.
In addition to the fabrication team’s milestone, a number of Danos crews based at client facilities are also celebrating incident-free records:
•On March 26, Danos’ Harvey Terminal team of eight employees reached 13 years without a recordable incident. The team has collectively notched 270,832 man hours providing support for terminal operations, including receiving, kitting and shipping–all without any OSHA recordables.
•Danos’ crew at an onshore storage facility in Galliano marked 15 years (and nearly half a million man-hours) incident-free on February 26. This 15-person team is involved with a wide range of facility operations, including maintenance and warehouse management.
•The Venice shore base team has also reached 15 years without a recordable incident. This location is manned by 10 Danos employees with an average tenure of 18 years each. The Venice team provides logistics, administration, crane operations and aviation support for the shore base.
•The Danos team, working with a Permian Basin exploration and production company, have achieved a two-year incident-free record with 590,000 man-hours worked. The team’s commitment to following company procedures for identifying and managing hazards has enabled it to reach this milestone for safety.
