Toowoomba based construction and civil company, McNab has achieved a unique safety record by officially reaching two million hours worked without a Lost Time Injury.
McNab has not had a lost time injury for 15 months and continues to maintain a 0.00 Lost Time Injury Frequency Rate (LTIFR) across all of its work sites.
Managing Director Michael McNab attributes the achievement to the company’s successful ‘Safety First’ approach, which is the result of a single‐minded commitment to safe work practices by the company’s clients, staff and subcontractors.
Mr McNab explains that construction is a physically demanding industry with a higher risk of injury than many other professions. The company’s goal is to make safety awareness second‐nature so that everyone gets home to their families safe every night.
McNab safety initiatives go beyond the worksite, with a recent free skin check for staff resulting in the detection and removal of potentially harmful skin cancers for around 12 employees.
Tradesman Tom Knox said McNab’s focus on workplace safety provides him with extra confidence in a high‐risk industry. He observes that McNab goes beyond talking about working safely by actually following through with support and advice for everyone to be safe at work or at home.
The company’s safety approach has resulted in growing success in the energy, resources and civil sectors throughout Queensland.
The two million hour LTI free milestone is the culmination of a number of recent achievements including receiving the inaugural Outstanding Safety Performance Award from Santos for work on the multibillion dollar GNLG Upstream project.
