Safety milestone on TAPS
Alyeska president Brigham A. McCown recently announced to company staff and TAPS contractors that they had collectively passed a significant safety milestone: 30 million consecutive hours worked without a Days Away from Work Case (DAFWC). The announcement was made during a call that lauded the workforce for an exceptional safety record in 2020.
The workforce technically reached the milestone on November 10, but the entire month’s hours worked had to be collected and processed before the milestone could be confirmed. The streak began nearly six years ago, following the last recorded DAFWC on December 28, 2014.
“This is a job well-done, and an exciting achievement that deserves special recognition,” said McCown. “This milestone is years in the making, and it’s a result of each of our teammates working and acting with discipline. We celebrate that today, and our commitment to safety will continue daily.”
For context, one person would have to work 24/7/365 for 3,424 years to reach 30 million hours; 360 people would have to work entire 40-year careers of 40-hour workweeks, without missing work due to injury, to reach this goal.
