Safety and wellbeing

The Industrial and Safety businesses have maintained a relentless focus on driving initiatives to mitigate fatal risk, prevent injuries, support operational excellence in design and ensure team members’ physical and psychological wellbeing. While TRIFR increased from 6.6 to 6.9, all lead indicators were above target.

Health and wellbeing initiatives included team members' flu vaccinations, a 10,000 steps challenge and the first in a series of mental health first aid training for leaders and team members, including a course which aimed to provide support for Indigenous team members. Blackwoods also undertook load restraint training for over 1,000 team members, while Workwear Group implemented improvements in its warehouse layout to reduce interactions between pedestrians and material handling equipment.
