Cubis Systems Roscommon celebrates 10 years without a lost time accident
Cubis Systems Roscommon site have set a new safety performance record of ten years with no lost time due to an accident or injury. A “lost time” accident is a work-related accident or injury that results in an employee having to take time off from work.
Commenting on the achievement Colman Cooney, Director of Supply Chain, Cubis Systems said “This significant milestone is down to the continued efforts of the entire Roscommon team, they have created a culture where safety is the most important aspect of our business. We have a proactive approach to safety; the environment is one where we are continuously improving and reducing risk. Everyone takes ownership for their actions whilst looking out for each other. No one is afraid to point out an unsafe behaviour or situation, and that allows for quick corrective action.”
Colman continued “There is a lot of self-policing, and our team have a willingness to work together. We have a works and safety committee that meet regularly and go through any concerns, observations or suggestions, they also discuss any near misses and HPLE’s, gaining learnings from those incidents. Training is also a key element, we provide a robust training program for any new team members, from day one of their employment we provide behaviour-based safety coaching. All new employees are provided with a work “buddy”, and they work closely for the first three months of their employment, to ensure they understand our rigorous safety standards”.
“Health and safety is at the forefront of our business as we want to make sure all our employees go home safe to their families each day. This is a huge achievement for Cubis Systems, reaching the ten-year mark proves that all employees are committed to one another’s safety. We want to keep moving forward and achieving more years.
