Calgary, AB – In 2011, the Athabasca Oil Sands Project’s Expansion 1 project passed a historic milestone of 43 million hours without a Lost Time Incident (LTI) across its operations. As a result, it has received the 2011 Responsible Canadian Energy Award for Health and Safety from the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers.

 An LTI is an accident that results in a worker being unable to return to work as a result of injuries. This marked the first time any project has realized this achievement in the history of the Royal Dutch Shell Group.

The project’s 43 million hours LTI-free was achieved through a focus on leadership, organizational efficiency and effective communication. Shell built a culture of ‘felt leadership’, which consisted of implementing leadership training, mentoring trained leaders, improving work processes, improving work practices and improving engagement methods that demonstrated visible, committed and involved leadership.

The project’s focus on implementing measureable leading health, safety and environment indicators and setting new standards for team performance and engagement positively changed the way many of the contractors working for Shell conduct business.
