Busselton Water’s safety record has reached a new milestone, with the team maintaining a perfect All Injury Frequency Rate for two years.

The triumph means the corporation has operated without a minor injury, a medically treated injury or a lost time injury.

Busselton Water chief executive officer Chris Elliott said the safety milestone was a reflection on the corporation’s commitment to its safety systems, processes and regular training.

“This safety milestone is a magnificent achievement for any company with a significant amount of employees, from management and administration staff through to manual and field workers,” he said.

“It shows our commitment to safety as an organisation – as well as the personal dedication of each and every one of our staff members to ‘living and breathing’ a culture of safety excellence.

“Safety is paramount in our high risk engineering and construction environment and Busselton Water is proving itself as having one of the best safety track records in the water industry.”

The perfect rate follows Busselton Water being recognised with a Gold Safe Way Achiever Award from the Industrial Foundation for Accident Prevention and a WorkSafe Plan Gold Achievement Award for its safety record and best practice occupational health and safety management systems.
