Steadfast in its commitment to keeping everybody harm-free, AboitizPower subsidiary Therma South, Inc. (TSI) recently clocked in two million safe man-hours without lost time injury (LTI).
The company celebrated the milestone together with its contractors last March 21, 2018, a day after the successful completion of TSI’s planned maintenance outage.
Our goal is to keep everybody harm-free so that you can go back home to your families safe and happy. Know that we consider you as our partners, and partners help each other to make sure that we run this plant safely and efficiently.
– Valentin Saludes III, Therma South Inc. Vice President and Plant Manager
With over 400 people working inside the power plant, the achievement is considered a significant milestone in upholding workplace safety at TSI. The celebration was highlighted with a Thanksgiving Mass and the Contractors’ Day, where contractual partners participated in various games, including a safety and skills competition.
“We want to thank TSI for leading the way to two million safe man-hours. We are happy that you consider us as partners, that is why we will continue to work hard in helping achieve another million safe man-hours,” said Gary Celerenos of Work Experts, one of TSI’s contractual partners.
TSI Vice President and Plant Manager Valentin Saludes III also thanked the contractors and TSI employees for their invaluable support in achieving the safety milestone.
“I would like to thank everyone for religiously following our safety practices. Our goal is to keep everybody harm-free so that you can go back home to your families safe and happy. Know that we consider you as our partners, and partners help each other to make sure that we run this plant safely and efficiently,” said Saludes.
