GWA provides a safe workplace for employees, contractors, visitors and customers, and seeks to drive a positive safety culture and works to actively reduce and mitigate risks.
GWA measures a range of balanced safety performance indicators. Proactive ‘LEAD’ indicators such as the number of Safety Interactions conducted, hazards reported, and actions closed were measured in FY18. GWA also measures key ‘LAG’ indicators that measure lost time and medically treated injuries, hours lost due to injury and total injuries which represents a combination of lost time and medically treated injuries.
Substantial progress continues to be made to improve the Group’s safety culture with a number of safety initiatives being implemented, and ownership and accountability for safety being accepted at all levels in the business.
A safety plan for FY19 has been developed. The Board and management remain focused on initiatives to improve GWA’s safety performance and culture with the continued aim of an injury free workplace.
