Safety and environmental champions
Here at Major Projects Group we are supporting the National Safe Work Month.
A national campaign run by Safe Work Australia.
“This is a time to reflect on our strong commitment to providing a safe and healthy workplace for all stakeholders, and not just this month, but every month. We believe a safer and healthier workplace is achieved through continuous communication with our work teams including subcontractors, volunteers, visitors and other stakeholders.”
This image is our version of the Safety Management poster distributed by SafeWork NSW. Our projects and workshops have held toolbox style consultative meetings to discuss the purpose of the poster and to maximise our processes around the identification of hazards, the development and implementation of controls and the constant review and monitoring of hazards through open two-way communications with all relevant stakeholders.
During the first 3 weeks of this National Safety month, National Manager – HSEQ Scott Wyatt has been visiting our teams across our offices, workshops and projects, as well as meeting with our volunteers from the Major Projects Foundation. As part of those conversations and in support of the Safe Work NSW campaign, our company wants to recognise Safety and Environmental Champions.
Darren has been recognised for continually going above and beyond what is expected over many years and on many demolition projects around the country. A true Safety and Environmental Champion!
Phil has been recognised for his leadership, assistance and supervision over a long period of time on site. Recently, Phil’s keen eye picked up a significant maintenance issue on an excavator on one of our sites. The machine was grounded and repaired immediately which avoided a potentially catastrophic incident.
Rod has been recognised for his continued leadership in site rules and requirements as well as his outstanding attitude towards the Safety and Welfare of the environment and his colleagues. While working constantly in a very high risk industry, Rod’s overall Culture and attitude is very much appreciated.
Reece 'Chook' Lewis
Chook’s recognition is based on his extensive involvement and participation in Major Projects Foundation’s safety and environmental process. He is also recognised for for his attitude and drive in assisting the ship’s manager in organising and training the Foundation’s volunteers.
Jack De Gilio
Jack has been recognised for his leadership and guidance in the development of the many drills required during the development of the RV Ocean Recovery’s management system design and implementation. With many years of marine experience under his belt, Jack was able to assist the ship’s manager in these processes.
Hip Pocket Workwear and Safety Newcastle has agreed to sponsor this ongoing initiative and has generously donated gift vouchers to our champions.
