On Line Attend World Safety Day Event

  • Mel Dent

Representatives from On Line Design recently attended the Total Lindsey Oil Refinery “World Safety Day” event.

World Safety Day is an annual event celebrated by the ILO (International Labour Organisation) which this year celebrates its 100th anniversary, and centres around raising awareness of occupational health and safety within the workplace.

The event included exhibits by various on-site contractors showing the work that they carry out on the TLOR site, and this provided an opportunity for everyone to see and learn more about the work that they and other contractors are doing.

Total also used the event to present awards to both individuals and companies for their contributions towards HSE performance throughout the year.

This year On Line Design achieved 8 consecutive years without a TRIR (Total Recordable Incident Rate) and received 1 of 3 TRIR awards for the achievement this year, whilst the remaining awards went to Delta and TLOR’s ‘C’ Shift.

In achieving this award On Line Design and TLOR contributed £500 each to a charity nominated by On Line Designs workers on site; this year the chosen charity being St. Andrew’s Hospice in Grimsby.

Duncan Russell, Engineering Director at On Line Design said, “The fact that only 1 other contractor organisation has attained 8 years TRIR free indicates what an achievement it is, and it is something that OLDE and our people based on TLOR should be justifiably proud of.”

Brendan steps down as Chairman from HCF CATCH

  • Mel Dent

Brendan Conlan, Managing Director of On Line Design, is to step down as Chairman later this year from HCF CATCH.

Brendan has acted as Chairman for the last four years and made the announcement Thursday 9th May, at the Mercure Grange Park Hotel, Hull at the CATCH and YCF Annual Awards Dinner.

Brendan said; “I will be standing down at this year’s AGM. There have been a lot of changes at Catch. Four years ago a lot of what we did relied heavily on funding from government organisations. Like most things in austerity, that money disappeared. There had to be a lot of changes, we had to stand on our own two feet. Catch Skills was developed and over the last four years it has been financially challenged at times, but we are on a firmer financial footing now, and that’s due to David, his team and the on-site partners. Catch is one organisation, we have 400 companies who respectively employ over 200,000 employees in the UK – think of the power that is in this room.”
