HROUGH
a strong commitment and
dedication to improving safety across all
facilities, Bradken’s Australasian based
operations achieved a Lost Time Injury
Frequency Rate (LTIFR) of 1.3 in October this
year, the lowest LTIFR figure to ever be
recorded for the region and a significant
reduction from the figure of 4.0 previously
recorded in July 2011.
Between July 2011 and September 2015, a
number of safety initiatives were implemented
in an effort to increase safety awareness and
improve site safety. These initiatives
contributed significantly to the successful
reduction of the LTIFR figure for the region,
however this result could not have been
achieved without the enthusiasm and
perseverance shown by our employees, front
line leaders, managers, safety representatives
and site Safety Committees.
