CEOs meet for safety think-tank

Chief executives from more than 20 of Queensland's largest minerals and energy companies are gathering in Brisbane today for the QRC annual CEO Health and Safety Leadership Day.

Chief executives from more than 20 of Queensland’s largest minerals and energy companies are gathering in Brisbane today for the Queensland Resources Council’s (QRC) annual CEO Health and Safety Leadership Day.

This year’s theme, Making a Difference—the Challenge to Change, challenges the executives to find out what employees think about their organisation’s health and safety regimes.

In the lead up to this year’s forum, participants were given the task of personally collecting statements from employees in non-leadership roles regarding their perceptions of the organisation’s health and safety management.

As well as revealing survey findings, the QRC forum will focus on how this data can be used to analyse an organisation’s safety performance and uncover what actions are required to deliver sustainable change.

Queensland Resources Council Chief Executive Michael Roche says the forum will provide valuable insight into what is working and what can be improved in the number one priority area for QRC member companies.

“Despite a vastly improved safety record in Queensland over the past decade, one fatality is one too many and we simply can’t afford to take our eye off the ball for a moment,” he said.

The safety day is being facilitated by Karl Stewart and Nicola Puharich of organisational change and improvement consulting company, Mawson Consulting.
