Best Solution to a Specific Workplace Health and Safety IssueDelta Group is Australia's largest provider of Demolition and site preparation. It has grown over the last 35 years and has a reputation for innovation, safety and certainty of outcome. The next step in Delta Group's journey to a safer workplace was to look at our culture. With many off the shelf products on the market we decided that we wanted something truly specific to our organisation. Our program "Right 1st Time" was developed in house. Along with this program were our 5 Safety Essentials, 5 statements that we believe if everyone followed would result in a safer working environment.
Best Solution to a Specific Workplace Health and Safety IssueI'd like to nominate one of our Senior Process operators for developing a simple solution to a hazardous manual task. The task involved operators contorting thier bodies into an extremely difficult location to place calibration blocks into a steel strip surface conditioning mill. The task had been done this way for many years. The Senior process operator developed a prototype extension tool that would allow an operator to place the calibration blocks into the mill from outside the guarding and with minimal effort, once the prototype had been optimized using toilet rolls and broomsticks, an aluminium tool was manufactured and has been successfully in use ever since. Significant reductions in the risk operators are exposed was achieved with a very simple tool developed by the guys on the floor. A great example of what can be achieved when people challenge the way things have always been done in the past.
