Safer Together dedicates this site to Gavin Slavin and his daughter Rebecca.  Sharing their story is a true example of the core safety behaviours that we want to see in our industry - “Be Credible. Take Action. Speak Up.”

Gavin Slavin works on Origin Energy’s BassGas production team on the offshore Yolla Platform. Gavin’s daughter Rebecca was caught in a spiral of domestic violence and drug abuse. Gavin turned to his manager Mat Quinn and his Origin family for help. Watch his moving story to see how work and family combined to bring Gavin, Rebecca and the Slavin family back together.

On behalf of our member companies, we thank Gavin and Rebecca for their bravery and wish them, and their family, the very best for a healthy future.

QRC Mental Health and Wellbeing Toolkit

Queensland Resources Council (QRC) Mental Health and Wellbeing Toolkit supports QRC’s Blueprint for Mental Health and Wellbeing. The purpose of the toolkit is to provide links to various resources to assist organisations to implement and develop their own mental health and wellbeing programs.

Safer Together is proud to collaborate with QRC to provide access to materials that will help manage mental health issues in our Industry.

 

LeadingWell Queensland

The Office of Industrial Relations Queensland – Workplace Health and Safety, SuperFriend and WorkCover Queensland, have formed LeadingWell Queensland to support Queensland workplaces to build and maintain mentally healthy workplaces – for every worker, every organisation, every day.

The collaboration is working together to create thriving workplaces, as well as positive and supportive work cultures and environments, by focusing on strategic leadership events, access to practical tools and resources, and sharing best practice information and benchmarks.

Working in a Hot Environment

Working in Queensland’s summer heat is a worker health hazard that needs to be managed carefully. Working in a Hot Environment - CSG Common Practices is a valuable resource to assist in managing this health hazard.
