DynCorp International Philippines Program Celebrates 10 Million Hours of Safety

dyncorp intl philippines programThe 800 DynCorp International teammates working in support of the Philippines Operations Support (POS) contract are celebrating a safety milestone. They surpassed ten million hours without a single Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recordable event – a momentous record earned over the course of eight years.

Steve McKeon, DynCorp International Environmental Health and Safety director states, “This is one of the most amazing records I have seen in defense contracting – from visiting the program, I can tell they are very serious about safety.”

DI’s POS contract provides air, land, and sea logistics, transport, camp operations, food service, billeting, potable water, field sanitation, utilities, hazardous material collection and disposal, MWR, property security, and vector control to the U.S. Department of Defense.

dyncorp intl philippines“There are many factors behind good safety performance,” DynCorp International program director, Ronnie Stokes, states, “but a key element at POS is their application of behavioral safety principles – each employee owns their safety performance and protects their team mates as well. They look out for customer and visitor safety so no one gets hurt.” Safe behavior is noted and recognized by managers on the POS contract as a part of their “Safety Pays” campaign to give recognition to the best safety performers each quarter.

DI’s POS personnel were given custom t-shirts in appreciation for their commitment to safety and held award celebrations at their local sites.
