Guyana Shore Base Inc. (GYSBI), the premier shore base in Guyana servicing ExxonMobil’s operations offshore, has recorded a milestone of zero Lost Time Injuries (LTI) for the past 1000 Days.
LTI refers to an injury sustained on the job by an employee, which results in the loss of productive work time. Lost time injuries encompass both temporary injuries that keep the employee away from work for a day as well as permanent disabilities and conditions that prevent the employee from ever returning to the job or performing their regular work tasks.
Deputy General Manager of GYSBI, Rabin Chandarpal said that this achievement is not by chance, but rather demonstrates an enduring and all rounded commitment by the Management and Staff of the company to protect its greatest assets, its people.
“This is a remarkable achievement in any industry, anywhere in the world. Safety doesn’t happen by chance but through focus and an all-round commitment from our team and our clients. Our operations are a testament to investment in infrastructure, best-in-class fleet of equipment, and the necessary maintenance and expertise and management systems needed to upkeep them. Our in-house and third-party training and certification programmes also allows us to harness the greatest of our resources, the staff of GYSBI. Every one of our staff comes to GYSBI under the umbrella of unwavering safety,” he said.
