Konecranes has helped their client Thomas & Coffey achieve an impressive 10-year safety record in Central Queensland.
Konecranes Central Queensland was given a Safety Award by Thomas & Coffey’s CQ Projects Division for contributing to 3650 days without a Lost Time Injury (LTI).
Describing the achievement as ‘incredible’, Dan Giovannoni, Gladstone Service Supervisor for Konecranes observes that safety always comes first at Konecranes. The company ensures that the required safety training is conducted and also properly logged.
He said that the company’s Central Queensland Branch was involved in a number of projects with industrial maintenance and project delivery company Thomas & Coffey. These include a recent installation and commissioning of two 20 tonne gantry cranes at Rolleston coal mine in the Bowen Basin, west of Gladstone; crane servicing at the Thomas & Coffey workshop at Boyne Island; and installation of a VSD (variable speed drive) on a ship loader at Yarwun, Gladstone.
Mr Giovannoni also said that their contribution to Thomas & Coffey’s outstanding safety record was a major positive for Konecranes Central Queensland and will be an asset when moving forward into new business assignments.
The Safety Award, signed by Thomas & Coffey’s managing director, Rex Comb, said: ‘Thomas & Coffey would like to congratulate and thank you and your staff for your safe work practices and valuable contribution to safety on our Construction Projects over the past 10 years’.
Tony Peacock, Regional HSE (Health, Safety, Environment) Manager for Thomas & Coffey’s Central Queensland Division, said his company’s safety record was achieved with the help of Konecranes and all of Thomas & Coffey’s suppliers.
He adds that ten years without a full day lost due to a work injury is a real achievement and a great team effort, thanks to everyone working together to maintain the company’s safety standards.
