Richard Alan LTA achievement

Celebrating 100,000 man hours without Lost Time Accident

Richard Alan have achieved a significant safety milestone of 100,000 man-hours without a single Lost Time Accident (LTA) during work on the BASF Line 7 Project in Bradford.

From the start of factory fabrication in September 2016 to the end of October 2017, the man-hours total includes both off-site and on-site time accumulated by Richard Alan Group employees, contractors and sub-contractors.

That equates to 4,166 days of work without a lost time incident, which is an incredible statistic, taking into account it involved major construction work, in and above existing production buildings, at the heart of a top tier COMAH site. It was Richard Alan’s responsibility to oversee the management of multi-discipline operations, from civils and steelworks, to mechanical and electrical installations.

The BASF plc site is one of the largest and most productive single site chemical plants in the UK. Primarily manufacturing products used to enhance industrial processing in various industries such as papermaking, mining, oil extraction, wastewater treatment and textile processing. The site also manufactures ingredients used in home and personal care products, such as thickening agents*.

The Line 7 project work carried out by Richard Alan, involved the design and manufacture, plus mechanical, electrical and instrumentation installation of major process equipment including a fluidised bed drier and granular size reduction equipment.

Work is due to be completed by the end of the year and it is anticipated that the LTA man-hours attributed to Richard Alan will greatly contribute to an equally impressive on-going LTA figure currently being achieved at the BASF site.
