Congratulations to all winners of SNC-Lavalin South Africa’s Safety Song Competition
In the spirit of safety awareness, SNC-Lavalin initiated a competition for colleagues in the region to compile, record and submit a safety song in support of a major contract that commenced in August at the Sasol Petroleum Refinery in Secunda, South Africa.
On 16 August 2018, competition winners were announced, the prizes were vouchers to the value of R10, 000 for the first prize, R6, 500 for the second prize and R 5,000 for the third prize.
The winning safety song was played across various projects throughout the Shutdown campaign to inspire colleagues to remain safety conscious and remind us to put safety at the heart of everything; to safe guard people, assets and the environment.
The song titled ‘Safety Talk’ by Given Radebe, General Worker, won the first place in the competition.
The safety song competition was a great way to express the urgency and create awareness of the importance of safety in the environment that we work in. Additionally, to ensure that we remind ourselves to focus extra attention and take every measure possible to deliver our services safely to ensure that everyone arrives home safe every day.
Occupational health, safety and environmental protection is a top priority at SNC-Lavalin. Taking a proactive approach, as opposed to corrective actions, the company has developed world-class policies, strategies, standards, internal controls, performance indicators and targets, along with technical systems and tools in order to centrally help manage risk and improve the HSE performance across all projects.
