Air Terminal Services will not sit back and relax despite being given two awards at the World Occupational Health and Safety Day Awards this week.

ATS chief executive, Hare Mani, acknowledged their safety record is better than most workplaces.  But, he said it was not good enough.

“Our goal is to make ATS the safest place to work in Fiji and maybe even worldwide.  Our goal is zero accidents,” he said.

“ATS strives to continuously make its work place a safer work place.  Hazards are always present in any workplace.

“The goal is to always ensure our workers are aware of the hazards and its consequences and to minimise it consequences through daily threat and error management.”

ATS won the award in the Most Improved Preventative Measures category as well as the Overall Outstanding OHS Management Awards.

“ATS realises the greatest asset of any organisation is its people,” Mr Mani said.

“To be recognised for an Occupational Health & Safety Award is a great achievement in our journey to ensure that our people are always protected in the workplace.

“ATS recognises that people have the right to a safe working environment.”

Strategy

Mr Mani said continuously improving their OHS management system was the key to them winning the awards.

“Our system is built on continuous improvement.  What we did very well yesterday, we strive to do better today,” he said.

“Making our people more aware of OHS and to appreciate that Safety is everyone’s responsibility.

“This was carried out through awareness, training, safety inductions and daily briefings.”
