Busselton Water hits two year record
Posted: 3 January 2018
Busselton Water’s impressive safety record has hit a remarkable new milestone, with the team achieving two years with a perfect All Injury Frequency Rate (AIFR).
The achievement means the corporation has, for two full years, operated without a minor injury, a medically treated injury or a lost time injury (LTI).
Busselton Water CEO Chris Elliott said the safety milestone is a reflection on the corporation’s stellar commitment to its safety systems, processes and regular training.
“This safety milestone is a magnificent achievement for any company with a significant amount of employees, from management and administration staff through to manual and field workers,” Mr Elliott said.
“It shows our commitment to safety as an organisation – as well as the personal dedication of each and every one of our staff members to ‘living and breathing’ a culture of safety excellence.
“Safety is paramount in our high risk engineering and construction environment and Busselton Water is proving itself as having one of the best safety track records in the water industry.”
The two-year perfect All Injury Frequency Rate achievement follows Busselton Water’s long standing commitment to safety – which has previously been recognised with a IFAP/CGU Gold Safe Way Achiever Award from the Industrial Foundation for Accident Prevention and a WorkSafe Plan Gold Achievement Award, from safety regulation WorkSafe for its outstanding safety record and best practice occupational health and safety management systems.
“Everyone should be incredibly proud of this accomplishment and should look at this a milestone step in continuing to improve the strong safety culture we’ve cultivated,” Mr Elliott said.
