Tekmar Launches ‘Tekcare’ Health and Safety Initiative

Tekmar Energy (Tekmar®) a market leading technology provider of protection systems for subsea cable, umbilical and flexible pipes and offshore engineering services, are pleased to announce the launch of their new Health and Safety Programme ‘Tekcare’.

Tekmar’s ‘values’ state that; “people are our greatest assets and we ensure that Safety is paramount to everything we do for our people, our customers and the environment in which we operate.  We always aim higher than industry standards.”  To exceed these ‘values’, the decision was taken to launch Tekcare across the business and align it with the transition to the recently updated ISO 45001 Standard and introduction of cloud-based Induction and Training platforms for both employees and visitors.

Tekmar strive to actively promote a pro-active attitude towards HSQE by all stakeholders and has a Safety-First approach throughout everything they do.  Managing Director Russell Edmondson said “We prioritise Safety (we do it safe!), then Quality (we do it right!), then Output (we do it efficiently!)”.

Tekcare was introduced throughout Tekmar to ensure Safety remains a priority as the Company continues to grow.  HSQE Manager, Rob McGill said “the naming of a Safety Programme is just as important as its contents.  The need to convey a message within the title whilst carrying an element of North East humour made this a simple decision.  ‘Tekcare’ – (Take care) is designed to encourage an open, feedback-rich culture amongst employees, whilst offering open communication between management and employees. without prejudice”.

Established in 1985 and employing over 100 members of staff, Tekmar supplies products and services globally from multiple manufacturing, testing facilities and regional offices in Asia, the Middle East and North America.
