Acknowledging Safety at Civilex

The health, safety, and wellbeing of our employees, subcontractors and the communities in which we work are integral to the way we operate. It’s a core value of the Civilex business. Safety above all else drives the behaviours that underpin our positive safety culture of “no harm”. We live by our mantra – safe today to enjoy tomorrow – reinforcing the importance of safety, ensuring all employees return home safe and sound to their family and friends. At Civilex, we encourage employees to speak about safety, identify unsafe practices or actions, inspire others to do the right thing and maintain safe working environments.

We are proud to acknowledge the outstanding safety actions of Civilex team members and share the choices made and extra steps taken that ultimately resulted in positive outcomes. Civilex would like to share two recent examples of proactive choices made by site staff to intervene and uphold company values and highlight the importance of being safe all of the time.

For their initiative and leadership, the Civilex Excellence in Safety Award for June 2018 is awarded to Civilex Operator Daniel Bye and Civilex Labourer Aidan McInerney.

At Civilex we are proud to acknowledge our outstanding team members and share the stories behind the safe choices made and/or the extra steps taken which result in positive outcomes for all.

CD9 – Clayton Train Station Project

Team members Daniel Bye and Aidan McInerney were part of a Civilex two-person team completing night shift works during a challenging occupation at the CD9 – Clayton Train Station project. These works involved the demolition and removal of concrete light-pole footings in the forecourt area where they were surrounded by other trades completing their own tasks.

The pair risk assessed their work scope in proximity to the surrounding workgroups and established further protection measures – temporary fence with additional protective screens around their already limited work zone – to ensure any nearby workers would not be impacted by flying debris from the footing demolition.

Daniel and Aidan displayed and demonstrated Civilex’s core values of safety, respect and culture when they raised the standard to protect all people working around them.

We congratulate our high achieving team members and recognise that once again the challenge has been set to raise the bar for a safe working environment for all. At all times being safe today to enjoy tomorrow.
