NLNG urges contractors’ CEOs on safety, zero incidents


The Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Nigeria LNG Limited (NLNG), Tony Attah, has called on chief executive officers of contractors to NLNG to be more visible in promoting safety in their operations especially with regards to work done for the company.

Mr Attah made the call on Tuesday while speaking at the 3rd Contractors’ CEOs Safety Leadership Conference, driven by Nigeria LNG in Port Harcourt to push its safety campaign of zero injuries, zero fatalities and zero leaks throughout its operations.

He said that in 2018, safety records were better especially with assurance that staff and contractors returned home safely after work, but added that there was still more work to be done.

Attah said NLNG started the year with the launch of the “zero means zero” campaign, to deepen the conversation on ‘Goal Zero’. He said both management and staff of the company agreed to demonstrate safety leadership at all levels.

“As we celebrate our milestones of safely and reliably exporting LNG cargoes across the globe, we look forward to securing our licence to grow our operations, our brand and our market through our Train 7 Expansion Project.

“This will reinforce our reputation as a significant and trustworthy player in the global LNG market,” he said.

Deputy Managing Director of NLNG, Sadeeq Mai-Bornu, said that HSE Goal Zero was the backbone of NLNG’s operations, adding that both management and staff consciously ensure that everyone involved in the company’s operations is safe at the end of each day’s operation.

The conference ended with a signed charter by management of NLNG and the contractors’ CEOs where they committed to achieve an incident and injury free year; conduct management site visits; lead HSE meetings, staff engagements; and participate in Toolbox talks as well as demonstrate safety leadership and care for people in their business.
