ABS announced it had zero work-related lost time incidents during 2017. The corresponding Lost Time Incident Rate (LTIR) of 0.00 represents a significant milestone in the organization’s continuing journey to safety excellence. 

 
“Safety is the heart of our mission and remains at the core of all we do, so we are thrilled to realize this exceptional safety record result,” said ABS Chairman, President and CEO, Christopher J. Wiernicki. 
 
Wiernicki added: “This achievement adds to our already strong industry-recognized safety leadership. At the same time, we continue to promote safety excellence through ongoing training and process improvements that enable and empower employees to recognize and control hazards in their daily work environment.”
 
ABS has an ongoing safety excellence program which incorporates strong occupational health and safety processes and policies, including its Stop Work Obligation rule authorizing all employees to intervene if safety is in question in any aspect of their work. 
 
“A world-class safety culture requires attention and consistent actions to drive positive behavior and change. Globally, ABS employees are mission-focused and passionate about being leaders in safety excellence,” said Wiernicki.
 
ABS continues to strengthen its global Health, Safety, Quality and Environmental (HSQE) record with increasing engagement of several leading safety behaviors, including timely reporting of potential incidents or hazards and documenting near misses. ABS also holds a leading position in safety with all major Port State Control areas while maintaining its focus on exceptional client service delivery.
