McDermott International Inc. (NYSE: MDR), a leading provider of integrated engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) services for upstream field developments worldwide, reached 45-million man-hours without a lost time incident (LTI) in its Middle East Area.

The industry-leading Quality Health Safety Environment Security (QHSES) milestone, which was reached on October 24th 2016, has been achieved in part through the company-wide adoption of McDermott’s Taking the Lead program which embeds excellence in QHSES performance into the company culture.

McDermott already sets an example for sub-contractors, partners and clients for outstanding QHSES performance and will continue to raise further awareness of Taking the Lead with its vendors and partners around the world in 2017.

“The safety of our staff, partners, clients and vendors is of utmost importance to McDermott and we strive to be an industry leader in QHSES,” said John Macpherson, McDermott’s Senior Director, Global QHSES. “We have reached significant QHSES achievements at facilities around the world, and the Middle East sets a new record achievement in reaching 45-million man-hours LTI-free. We hope to continue setting a positive QHSES example across the globe.”

To further evolve the QHSES culture instilled by Taking the Lead, the McDermott Operational Values (MOV) were created to identify key procedures and processes fostering safety first attitudes and behaviors.

Following a global MOV rollout event in Dubai, Linh Austin, McDermott’s Vice President, Middle East and Caspian, said, “At McDermott, we don’t have a safety initiative, we have a safety culture; a culture where high QHSES standards are part of the McDermott DNA. This is thanks in part to our employee-driven initiatives like Taking the Lead and McDermott Operational Values. Our staff embodies these initiatives to find better, safer ways of working, which translates into not only improved quality of work for them, but for our customers as well.”
