Colt DCS said that it has achieved 500,000 safe working hours onsite during its data center osaka buildout.
Specifically designed to meet the high security needs of customers with mission-critical data, on completion, our Colt Osaka Keihanna Data Center/Data Center Osaka will span a gross site area of 62,000m2 and offer over 40MW of deliverable IT power. Following the 2011 earthquake in Japan, many companies realised the benefit of geographically dispersed sites and so there is a large demand for data center near Osaka as an integral part of disaster recovery plans.
At Colt DCS, the excellence in our standards is not just tied to our technical capabilities, but also extends to our people. Having the best talent in the industry means we can help our customers achieve their IT infrastructure goals by offering them scalable and flexible hyperscale data centre solutions, the company said in a statement. Gordon Hatton – VP, Head of Development & Delivery (Japan) said:
“Passing the 500,000 incident-free working hours milestone at our Colt Osaka Keihanna Data Center is a tremendous achievement for Colt DCS. We attribute our success in health and safety management not only to the good relationship our site team has built with our general contractor, but also to the guidance our internal and external stakeholders offer. Maintaining an incident and injury free workplace is one of our top initiatives. At Colt DCS, we believe it is everyone’s right to work in a safe environment and return home each day safe and healthy. As we approach Phase 1 completion in December 2022, we look forward to reporting continued success in the health & safety management of our Colt Osaka Keihanna Data Center project.”
How it achieved?
By implementing a wide range of protocols and safety control measures to mitigate risks, these 500,000 safe working hours at its Colt Osaka Keihanna Data Centre have successfully been achieved by numerous initiatives.
For starters, Colt DCS proactively conducted safety training by the GC to their subcontractors. It also included clear equipment inspection and maintenance protocols onsite, enforced global best practices in the use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) exceeding local standards and considered a risk hierarchy in all works planning. Also, it explored High Risk Activities (HRA) with a four week advance schedule to support planning and onsite communication.
