In March 2020, Wilson Sons recorded eight years without lost time accidents at its offshore support bases, a milestone in the oil and gas sector. There were 4.6 million man-hours worked in dozens of operations along the Brazilian coast. The new record reinforces the Company’s commitment to the well-being of its employees, especially in the face of the challenges imposed by the global crisis generated by the new coronavirus (Covid-2019).
During this period, more than 20 projects were carried out with the main oil companies, in addition to numerous contracts with service companies between shipowners, operators of offshore units and others.
