MAASIM, SARANGANI PROVINCE – True to its commitment to be one of the best in the business, the Alsons Power Group’s Sarangani Energy Corp. (SEC) recorded more than one million safe man-hours in its on-going operations.


The safe man-hour is the equivalent of hours each worker has served under one corporation or company. It is calculated by multiplying the number of workers to the number of man-hours they have served.


As of November 2018, SEC was able to log 1,067,692 worth of safe man-hours, while avoiding catastrophic events and work-related deaths.


SEC’s one million safe man-hour was not only exclusively computed based on the number of plant workers but also on the number of workers employed by its partners.


Some of these partners include the Alsons Security (ALSEC) which provides the safety and security for the plant accounted for more than a quarter of the safe man-hours recorded by SEC.


“One million man-hours without any significant injuries or safety issues are a big thing for us because it underscores our commitment to providing the best working condition for our workers,” Joel Aton, Human Resource Head and Project Assurance Manager said.


“Not only that, one million safe man-hours means that we run a very tight and efficient operation here,” he added.


Plant Manager Jori Liimatta also explained that the one million safe man-hours logged by SEC are significant considering that it is also in the middle of building the second section of the power plant.


As of the moment, SEC is constructing its second 105-megawatt (MW) component inside its compound. It employs more than 1,500 workers and more than 140 engineers and support staff.
