Safety Milestones Achieved

Marty Wilton and his night shift crew have reached an incredible 2 years completely injury free whilst Mastermyne Crinum East “C” crew achieved the milestone of having completed 800 days without a recordable injury.

PYD Mining Services 2 years injury free

Marty Wilton and his night shift crew have reached an incredible 2 years completely injury free. This milestone was reached on the 24th October 2008 and recognition for this achievement was made at the PYD 2008 Xmas get together at the Scarborough Hotel in Wollongong during November 2008.

Marty and the night shift crew were presented with a glass tankard inscribed with the 2 years injury free statement and PYD logo and to recognise the contribution made by the original night shift crew, Marty Wilton, Mark Watson and Dale Lund, they had their name inscribed on the tankard.

In any industry this achievement is fantastic and shows that work can be performed in an injury free environment. The milestone is a credit to all the employees on night shift and is testament to their commitment to participate in the safety reporting culture at PYD.

Through recognising hazards and thinking about our jobs we can work injury free. Congratulations to Marty and the night shift crew on the achievement and we are looking
forward to achieving the 1000 days injury free milestone.

Mastermyne Crinum East “C” Crew

On 04/11/08, C Crew at Crinum East achieved the milestone of having completed 800 days without a recordable injury. This
coincides with the completion of Development of Mg 18, Mg19 Face Road and Mg 18 Face Road widening. This drivage took
approximately 19 months to complete from 29th March 2007 to 29th October 2008.

The crew believes that some of the things that have helped them to be successful are:-

  • Having a close knit crew who bond well together.
  • The correct people employed to do the job.
  • They feel at ease to put forward ideas that may make a job safer or easier.
  • They are willing to challenge each other if they do not feel comfortable about something they see.

This safety trend has continued with “C” Crew at Crinum East, achieving 886 days without a recordable injury as at 29th January 2009.
