An interactive case study presentation illustrating the challenges of developing a high performing safety culture at Downer Mining. Presented by Registered Psychologist Rebecca Mahony (Training and Development Manager West).

Zero Harm is one of Downer's key values; it is embedded in their culture and is fundamental to their success. Recently, Downer operated one of the largest iron ore mine sites in Western Australia and through this site, an opportunity to address their safety culture was presented. Over a 12-24 month period, the safety culture was significantly enhanced utilising a series of high-level engagement measures requiring strong leadership, intensive focus and communication.

This session will cover:
• Analysing safety culture data utilising engagement surveys
• Gaining support for initiatives from all levels of business
• Creating organisational action plans to address challenges and build capability

Downer is a leading provider of services to customers in markets including: Transport Services; Technology and Communications Services; Utilities Services; Engineering, Construction and Maintenance (EC&M); Mining; and Rail; employing 19 000 people. More specifically, this event will focus on safety leadership within the contract mining business who employ 3000 staff, largely in Australia but also overseas.

Entry fee also includes champagne/beer/wine on arrival and canapes.
