Health, safety and wellbeing are at the forefront of everything we do at the Midland Metro Alliance. Integral to our success, we are committed to ensuring our projects are safe at all times and our worksites fully compliant with health and safety legislation, ensuring that they are safe for all.
We work diligently to ensure staff, partners, visitors and stakeholders are as safe as possible as we work to extend the tram network in the region. Using sophisticated processes and procedures, we track our health and safety behaviours and use data to continually improve our safety performance.
A Key Result Area (KRAs) within the Midland Metro Alliance, there are three health, safety and wellbeing Key Performance Indicators (KPIs):
1. Lost Time Incident Frequency Rate (LTIFR) target of 0.55 per 100,000 hours worked
2. Total workforce should achieve an average of 16 hours health and safety training per year
3. Twenty-five health and safety innovations should be implemented per year
Training is an integral component of our safety management system. We recognise that training can improve competence, performance and job satisfaction as well as producing higher levels of awareness, increasing close call reporting and reducing the number of incidents.
We also measure Close Call/Near Miss reporting, investigation and close out. We use a specially developed app CARL (Call, Action, Report and Learn) which provides important insight into potential issues which may arise on site and surrounding areas.
