Safety Recognition For Pipemech Australia

Pipemech has recently been acknowledged for its safety performance by Thiess during the construction of the Matilda John Compressor Station on the QCLNG Project, Chinchilla. At Matilda John Field Compressor Station, Pipemech was commended by Thiess within its ‘Rewards & Recognition Program’ for its safety record and performance during January 2014.

Pipemech commenced the SMP scope on-site in August 2013 and over 35,000 man-hours have been completed without recording a Lost Time Injury (LTI) with only minor punchlist items and commissioning assistance to be completed. New work has recently commenced on the construction of McNulty and Kate Compressor stations and on the completion and commissioning of Ruby Jo Central Processing Plant and six associated Field Compressor Stations.

Pipemech draws upon its experienced workforce and stringent recruitment standards to ensure its personnel are industry professionals committed to working within an embedded ‘Safety Culture’. A professional management team including Operations Management, functional leads for HSSE, Project Controls, Cost & Finance and QA plus trades and labour play an active part in ensuring the safety of their ‘Work Family’.

To promote the ‘Safety Culture’ within its own ranks, Pipemech has instigated a Safety Recognition program by donating $10,000 to national and local charities for each 10,000 man-hours it achieves without recording a LTI.

Recently, management representatives attended a presentation by the QLD Cancer Council to acknowledge Pipemech’s 5 year commitment to sponsor a 2 bedroom unit for families at the new Brisbane Accommodation Lodge for families of cancer patients being treated in Brisbane. At Chinchilla, Pipemech sponsored the erection of a large shade sail to provide sun protection to students of the Special Needs Unit attending Chinchilla State School.

The company is proud of its delivery of a safe work environment not only for its crew members, but to all project stakeholders. Most importantly of all, Pipemech is dedicated to enhancing the well-being of the communities it works within.
