The health, safety and wellbeing of our employees, subcontractors, and the communities in which we work are integral to the way we operate. Equally vital is environment and quality across all the projects we undertake. The health, safety, environment, and quality (HSEQ) of our work is valued and integral to the way we operate. HSEQ drives the behaviours that underpin our positive safety culture of no harm.
We are proud to recognise Civilex Operator John Lynch on our West Gellibrand Reservoir Upgrade project who is the recipient of the Civilex HSEQ Excellence Award for May 2020.
John was recognised for actions he undertook when activity was different from that detailed within the SWMS involving placing topsoil to the face of a dam embankment.
John stopped works to discuss with the crew the methodology and any additional risks and control measures required. The SWMS was then amended, and the works recommenced with everyone in the crew having a greater understanding of how to undertake the works safely.
John is recognised for his commitment to our company value of safety and being a leader in the safety culture on site by ceasing works to ensure that the safety systems are implemented correctly.
Civilex thanks you for all your efforts and contribution to maintaining our HSEQ culture.
