Liquip Safety Achievement

October marked a great achievement for both divisions of Liquip in Australia this year, with Melbourne recording 3 years Loss Time Injury free at the outset and Sydney achieving 2 years at the end of the month.

Both sites commemorated the occasion with a staff BBQ, at which congratulations were conveyed by all tiers of management. Vin Stenta, IES CEO, attended the Melbourne event, congratulating the team on having the 2nd top rated site in the IES global group, with Singapore leading the way at 5 years LTI free.

The staff were encouraged by this, commenting that they wanted to achieve similar results.

Kirk Newman, HSSE Manager for the Equipment Division, presented both Safety Committees with commemorative plaques bearing the names of every employee, to be hung in each business as a record of achievement.
Individual gifts of achievement were then passed to each employee, consisting of a commemorative cap and a double Gold Class movie pass.

“This is what it is all about, this shows that safety systems work when each and every person is committed” said Kirk.
