The Sales Area West Africa of global mining equipment giant, Sandvik Mining & Construction, has celebrated a major milestone of working 2.5 million man-hours without a Lost Time Injury (LTI).
This means the West Africa operations of the company, which include legal entities in Ghana, Nigeria and Mali, as well as physical presence across West Africa, have in four (4) consecutive years not recorded any injury serious enough to warrant an employee absenting him/herself from work.
The historic achievement represents a continuation of the Sales Area’s attainment of 1.5 million man-hours LTI-free in 2014, a feat the company celebrated on November 7 of that year, under the theme: “We made it happen.”
“On that day, again, we all pledged our support to the next phase of the journey, which was to achieve 2.5 million man-hours without an LTI. And though this seemed a daunting task, considering the precarious nature of our industry, here we are again today, ‘taking the lead in EHS: 2.5 million man-hours LTI-free and counting,” Vice-President, Sandvik Mining & Construction, Sales Area – West Africa, Mr. Nuhu Salifu said at a brief ceremony held at the Company’s ultra-modern Service Centre at Pakyi No. 1, near Kumasi.
