Bechtel has been recognised for its commitment to safety on the Gladstone LNG plant project with a National Safety Award of Excellence from the National Safety Council of Australia.
The awards are Australia’s longest-running, independent recognition program that honours outstanding health and safety initiatives in the workplace. Bechtel is designing and building the GLNG liquefaction plant and associated infrastructure for Santos and its partners on Curtis Island in Queensland.
“The Australian National Safety Award of Excellence recognises engagement by our colleagues and managers working together to develop a world-class safety culture on the project,” said Alasdair Cathcart, general manager of Bechtel’s LNG business line. “This recognition is a testament to our team’s commitment to always stay true to our values: performing good-quality work safely, to the highest ethical standard.”
Bechtel’s GLNG project team developed an innovative program called the Safety League to create a long-term, sustainable safety culture. Borrowing from rugby, the program uses teams and sports terminology and concepts to motivate people and reward safe behaviors.
The program also benefits the community by donating money to local charities on behalf of the teams that successfully meet safety challenges. Since the program’s inception, the company has donated almost US$ 100,000 to organisations in the Gladstone area.
