Collaborative approach to contractor safety

WHEN mining and construction chief executives talk about workplace safety, many people struggle to stifle a yawn. But it is very different on the rare occasion when they hear about a serious accident.

Then it hits the news, upsets the unions, disrupts the workplace, and could result in permanent injury or death, which is why chief executives continue to focus on workplace safety.

The focus on workplace safety was illustrated earlier this year when US oil and gas giant Chevron took the unusual step of inviting chief executives and country managers from 26 contractors working on its Gorgon project to attend a safety summit on Barrow Island.

The aim was to ensure that every contractor properly understood the issue.
