Working safely together is important to us, which is why we’re excited to announce we’ve been named as a finalist in the Collaboration category at the Safeguard Awards 2020.
Since its inception in 2005, the Safeguard Awards have become established as an annual highlight for everyone involved in the prevention of workplace injury and ill-health.
Being a finalist in this category recognises our collaborative partnership with industry experts TEG Risk and Weratech.
Partnering with these machine safety experts enabled us to do a high level safety review of all the things that make up a robust Health and Safety Management System.
To address the issues and to implement the recommendations from the review, we appointed a Machine Safety Program Team made up of our people and our external partners.
The review helped us to create a holistic approach that takes into consideration the hierarchy of controls and industry best practice.
By working together they were able to create permanent resources to address technical requirements, ensure quality and consistency, simplify energy isolation of machinery, maintain safeguards and make certain that new equipment meets essential machine safety requirements.
