What is a Disabling Injury?

Aveng Grinaker-LTA Building - East recently achieved 1 million man hours in their plant and scaffold yard, without a disabling/time lost injury.

To put it into perspective....

Although I found the following explanation for the term “disabling injury” on a Canadian website, I’m sharing it with you as it is precisely how it is interpreted throughout the world.

"Disabling injury means an employment injury or an occupational disease that
  • prevents an employee from reporting for work or from effectively performing all the duties connected with the employee's regular work on any day subsequent to the day on which the injury or disease occurred, whether or not that subsequent day is a working day for that employee,
  • results in the loss by an employee of a body member or part thereof or in the complete loss of the usefulness of a body member or part thereof, or
  • results in the permanent impairment of a body function of an employee.”
The point is, what Raj Naidoo and the team at the Aveng Grinaker-LTA Building - East plant and scaffold yard have achieved, is extraordinary.

To find out what Raj attributes their success to, read article “1 Million Man Hours Worked without a Disabling Injury”.
