This includes Service Australia’s goal of ‘best in class’ service provider.

Ian Austin, Manager Services Centre - overseeing operations for Henderson Workshop, North West Services and the Field Services teams: “This is evidence that achieving and maintaining a strong safety culture is achievable. Our people and the contractors under our supervision are exposed to many hazards during repair and revamp work on mining equipment throughout Australia and as such, special recognition must be made to the outstanding safety commitment of our managers, supervisors and workforce who conduct their work on site, in the workshop and warehouse - where the majority of our risks are. While we acknowledge that there are still areas of the business that we need to focus on in order to continually improve, this is a significant milestone for us and one that we are extremely proud of.”
