We’re powered by our people

Our business success is dependent on the performance and achievements of our people and we won’t compromise on their health, safety and wellbeing.

Port Waratah’s value of caring drives our overriding commitment to the health and safety of our people. We have established, implemented and maintained procedures for ongoing hazard identification, risk assessment and determination of necessary controls to keep our people safe and healthy. All employees, contractors and visitors are covered by our Health and Safety Management Plan and ISO 45001 certification.  

We reported five recordable injuries during 2021, all of which occurred during the second half of the year. This is the same result as compared to 2019 and is not in line with our goal of zero injuries.

Key Achievements

  • Introduction of the Medical Surveillance Programme to improve access to medicals and onsite health care.
  • A total of 1,884 safety interactions completed, over 43% increase compared to 2020.

Our system involves identifying hazards, assessing the risks, finding ways to control unacceptable risks, deploying the controls identified and recording the process and outcomes. Each team member at Port Waratah is trained and empowered to identify and report work-related hazards through our incident reporting system, ensuring the hazards are communicated to others and containment controls or rectification actions can be implemented.

In 2021, our efforts focussed on continual health, safety and wellbeing measures in response to the Covid-19 pandemic as well as developing education and awareness of our people on the potentially fatal hazards identified in our workplace.
