Santos and Savanna: Helping Hands - Engaging Workers to Improve Hand and Finger Safety While Helping Others Case Studies • In the 12 months to August 2016, 4 of 7 recordable injuries sustained by Santos’ Drilling and Completions activities involved hands and fingers. Savanna Rig 65 was about to enter service for Santos. It was important to engage the rig crew during mobilisation to raise awareness of the incidence of hand injuries – and to explore what could be done to minimise them.
Senex: Using Workforce Feedback to Build a Culture of Safety Case Studies • Understanding the baseline safety culture and getting valuable safety insights from work teams is hugely beneficial for any company. With onshore operations in the Cooper Basin (South Australia) and the Surat Basin (Queensland), independent oil and gas exploration company Senex Energy has a workforce that is spread far and wide. Engaging the company’s workforce in regular conversations about safety, and gauging changes in people’s attitudes and views over time, can be a major logistical exercise for companies like Senex.
Ostwald Bros: Implementation of Land Transport Standards Case Studies • Ostwald Bros often operates in remote locations, and safety and wellbeing of its drivers have always been one of the highest priorities. For a company like Ostwald Bros, which manages a fleet of heavy and light vehicles, it is important to be able to monitor and manage fatigue and vehicle journeys, conduct vehicle inspections on a regular and consistent basis, and drive accountability for reporting and safe driving behaviours.
