Onsite Safety Getting Noticed
AE Smith is leading the way on site at Victoria’s Craigieburn Town Centre project, taking out Lend Leases monthly sub contractor safety award for the last five consecutive months
We’re being recognised for our commitment to safe work practices wherever we are and whoever we work with
Fostering safety on their sites, Lend Lease creates a safety matrix to benchmark their sub contractors, including AE Smith and hosts of other construction trades including plumbers and electricians.
Contractors are rated out of 100 on their positive safety contributions – with AE Smith topping the leader board since January this year on the new shopping centre complex.
AE Smith’s National Safety Manager, Nick Daley is impressed to see how the company is ahead of the pack when it comes to demonstrating safety values on the job:
“Lend Lease are looking for a commitment to high levels of documentation, training, supervision and observation and our guys have been setting the standard,” says Nick.
Lead by Site Manager, Ric Mitchell, AE Smith’s strong safety culture is being noticed.
“What’s really encouraging is we’re being recognised for our commitment to safe work practices wherever we are and whoever we work with. Ric and his team have done a great job ensuring our own subcontractors for this project are also on board with our high safety standards – it’s been a great team effort all round.”
