STAFF at a Scottish power station are celebrating as the workplace reached 10 years without anyone taking time off for a work-related injury.

Since March 2008 staff and contractors at the Hunterston B site have worked more than 18.2 million hours in total without a Lost Time Injury (LTI).

That is when someone working at the station injures themselves on duty and is absent for one day or more. This is longest run across all eight UK nuclear power stations.The Safe Start campaign which takes place each January teaches staff how to be safe for the coming year.

Technical and safety manager, Roddy Angus, said: “EDF Energy takes safety extremely seriously. It is embedded in our culture; we start every meeting by discussing a daily safety message to ensure that when people go out to work on the plant safety is at the forefront of their minds.

“We want to ensure that the power station is a safe and healthy workplace.”
