Federal Safety Commissioner 2008 Award

Monday, 01 December, 2008

Federal Safety Commissioner (FSC) Helen Marshall presented the 2008 FSC award at the Master Builders’ National Awards held in Canberra in November to John Holland for their Reliance Rail Maintenance Facility project in NSW.

The FSC Award promotes best practice OHS on building and construction projects through the acknowledgement and celebration of excellence in health and safety.

In presenting the award, Marshall noted that the project demonstrated excellent communication where all parties associated with the active railway system were consulted.

The project was complex with high hazard profiles including a live railway line, overhead wires, contaminated land and all of the competing forces associated with the undertaking of construction work at an active site.

The project team regularly and comprehensively addressed safety management risks, particularly during design and prior to construction commencing. This led to a project with no lost time injuries.
