Safety Leadership Program – New Generation Rollingstock Project – Queensland
BWC developed a tailored program which assessed the capability of each leader across a range of safety competencies, including leadership commitment to safety, risk assessment, incident investigation and effective communication.
In the first year of the program, Woollam Constructions achieved a 40% reduction in their Total Recordable Injury Frequency Rate. A further 19.8% reduction in TRIFR was achieved in the following 5 months, confirming a sustained continual improvement.
While the review conﬁrmed that many work processes were in order, it did uncover several instances where the level of safety risk could be improved through the implementation of a systematic safety program.
