MAJOR mining and civil construction company Macmahon Holdings has developed a program whereby employees identify their personal drivers for encouraging occupational health and safety in the workplace.

The Big Five program asks each employee to list the five most important aspects to their lifestyle to encourage them to identify their own reasons why being safe is important.

The program, supported by a rewards scheme, promotional materials and successful integration into everyday work practices, has gained widespread support and recognition for effectively linking lifestyle values with workplace safety.

A report on the program is featured in the latest issue of First Watch – a bi-monthly newsletter published by the Chamber of Minerals & Energy of Western Australia (CME) which promotes safety and health initiatives in the resources sector.
