Whitehaven Coal Limited : Annual Report 2012
24 HEALTH AND SAFETY WHITEHAVEN SAFETY DAYS 2012 Whitehaven has recently held its inaugural series of Safety Days with more than 1000 employees and contractors participating. While the events occurred subsequent to balance date, the extensive planning process began in the first half of FY2012 and accelerated during the year. Each of Whitehaven's sites ceased production for a day as the workforce took part in the event, which included safety presentations, opportunities for employees to share their ideas for safety improvement, and general discussions of what is expected by both the company, and its employees in terms of safety. Feedback from the event was extremely positive and a number of worthwhile safety initiatives have been implemented after being raised by employees or management on the day. In order to ensure the day was a success, in terms of both practical outcomes and safety culture improvement, a perceptions survey of our employees and management was carried out before the event. The survey found that there is an active interest in safety improvement within Whitehaven and that there are significant opportunities for improvement in the key areas of leadership, structure and processes.
