Dinamico Construction, Inc. receives a plaque of appreciation from Atimonan One Energy, Inc. for the achievement of 1M safe-man hours without a lost time incident in A1E’s project site. Award was given during the management monthly progress report meeting last January 15.
Atimonan One Energy, Inc. (A1E) achieved one million safe manhours without lost time incident (LTI) last December, a milestone that reflects the company’s commitment to safety, security and quality in all its activities at its power plant site in Barangay Villa Ibaba, Atimonan, Quezon.
Currently, there are more than 400 people working on site preparation activities at the site for the planned power plant.
The company is working together with Dinamico Construction, Inc. – its general contractor for civil works – since September 2018.
A1E on January 15 gave a plaque of recognition to Dinamico to share the milestone that signifies the two companies’ commitment in ensuring best safety practices in the workplace.
Paul Kennedy, SVP for Construction of A1E parent firm Meralco PowerGen (MGen), commended all the people working for the project in their efforts to achieve the safety milestone and expressed his hope that such will continue to be a priority.
“I would like share with you our achievement of 1-million safe manhours without lost time incident. We would have not achieved this very important milestone without the commitment and hard work of your local workforce,” Kennedy told Dinamico.
To which Dinamico Safety Officer Jinberm Lee responded: “We are very proud of this achievement. This was a result of the dedication of our employees for the strict observance of safety in all aspects of their work.”
As part of its effort to ensure a safety culture, A1E and its contractors conducts a toolbox meeting three times a week to discuss relevant health and safety-related activities.
On a weekly basis, there is also a management walkthrough and safety meeting with subcontractors to identify hazards and any unsafe acts and conditions that may be present at site.
Safety inspection reports are regularly prepared and submitted to A1E by the contractors to monitor safe execution of all activities at the plant site.
Atimonan One Energy, Inc. (A1E) is the developer of a 2×600 megawatt (MW) coal-fired power plant in Atimonan, Quezon hat will utilize high efficiency, low emission (HELE) technology known as ultra-supercritical (USC).
