Dart Realty (Cayman) Ltd. has
successfully achieved over 2.3 million man hours without a lost workday case.
This accomplishment reflects no lost workdays from February 2008 through
February 2010 and is the result of the combined efforts and safe work practices
of almost 500 construction workers who have worked at Camana Bay over the past
two years, including employees from over 65 contracted companies.
This achievement is centred on a
solid safety program, training, education, communication and an outstanding
safety culture amongst the entire team.
All employees and contractors of
Dart Realty are required to comply with the Cayman Islands New Construction
Regulations and with the regulations of the Occupational Safety and Health
Administration as set forth by the U.S. Department of Labour.
Through ongoing development and
implementation of safety training programs, daily safety meetings and continual
safety checks employees and contractors of Camana Bay are fully aware of their
responsibility towards eliminating health and safety hazards.
“It is through great teamwork and individual
awareness of hazards and risk that this milestone has been achieved,” said
Safety Manager Julius Jacky.
Having been with the company for a
number of years, Mr. Jacky was instrumental in providing the framework for the
safety standards and in overseeing and implementing the training programs.
“This is a significant accomplishment
that our employees and contractors should be very proud of and is a testament
of Dart Realty’s ongoing commitment to maintaining the highest standards of
safety possible,” he said.
In addition to intensive training
programs, Dart Realty has established a safety committee that works successfully
with its employees to ensure ongoing safe operations and is comprised of
departments of the organization. Employees are held accountable to this
committee and are continually reminded to keep safety as a first priority in
“Our management team is not only completely
committed to meeting the safety standards outlined by the laws of the Cayman
Islands, but is also determined to exceed these and raise the industry level of
safety performance,” said COO of Dart Realty Ed Grampp.
“By formulating innovative policies
and procedures that enhance the current standards, we are aiming to be a leader
in the Caribbean in occupational health and safety.”
Over the last two years, Dart
Realty’s construction projects have included the first residential phase of
Camana Bay called the Terraces, the pool to The Terraces, the Observation Tower
and 89 Nexus Way. It will also be breaking ground on a new 100,000 square foot commercial
office and retail development this year.
