Local water provider strikes safety gold
Busselton Water was awarded a WorkSafe Plan Gold Achievement Award on Monday, marking the local water provider’s commitment to demonstrating a best-practice approach to safety and health.
The rigorous WorkSafe bi-ennial assessment consists of five elements which cover the organisation’s commit-ment to safety practices, planning, consultation and reporting, hazard manage-ment, and training and supervision.
WorkSafe Commissioner Darren Kavanagh said Busseltons Water’s score in consultation was particularly impressive.
“It’s rare for corporate organisations to receive the gold or platinum award — for Busselton Water to receive gold twice now is a significant achievement,” he said.
Busselton Water achieved more than 80 per cent across all five assessment areas and will look to attain a platinum certification during the next assessment.
Busselton Water chief executive Chris Elliott said the corporation’s overall assessment of 86 per cent was a marked improvement on the 79 per cent score achieved at the last assessment in 2016.
