Operating seven days a week across five depots and offering multiple disciplines across a number of sites, Brida is very proud to set an increasingly high safety benchmark by accumulating 500,000 hours without a Lost Time Injury (December 2018), and still counting.
Brida brought local people to industry and in return, industry brought to Brida the discipline of Health and Safety. This has been a catalyst for the pathway we’ve taken in our goal to create positive impacts for local people and local industry partners.
Health and Safety is where Brida’s operating culture creates change. Brida has crafted an internal dynamic that places health (including mental health) and safety as the cornerstone discipline of our work processes, daily routines and internal recognition.
Our main goal, right throughout our organisation, is that everyone must get home to their families, every day (remembering that ‘mummy is a cleaner and daddy is a gardener). This commitment to deliver a safe and healthy work environment helps us ensure that our high safety standards are always maintained.
In addition, our team take seriously their opportunity to be ‘eyes and ears everywhere’ through their daily operations. This involves identifying risks and opportunities to improve health and safety across the entire work front – an empowering process has led to countless health and safety improvements for our clients and attracted the recognition of two highly coveted M.A.D. Awards (Make a Difference) for safety improvements on RTIO sites.
This is achieved through:
- Daily Quality Safety Engagement
- Engaging and Empowering our Employees
- Continuous Collective Improvement
- Hazard Identification and Management
- Current and relevant HSE Policies and Procedures
- Task Specific Fitness for Work Program
- Proactive Injury Management
- Regular Safety Audits and Reporting
