The Company is pleased to announce the Gold Coast Light Rail team has achieved the significant milestone of one million man-hours without a lost time injury (LTI). Working in the centre of Australia’s sixth largest city, the team reached this achievement on 22 January 2013.
GoldLinQ is commitment to sustaining a Zero Harm environment, and ensuring that safety is top of mind at all times.
GoldLinQ’s Design and Construction Joint Venture (D&C JV) Project Director, Simon Bradbury...
"Every person involved in the delivery of stage one of the light rail system has a role to play in sustaining a Zero Harm environment.
"This milestone is a significant achievement and is something that many construction and infrastructure projects aim for, but don’t always achieve,
"A strong focus on identifying and controlling hazards, reducing exposure to health and safety risks, and supporting the general health and well-being of our team members has ensured we realised this milestone.
"It’s a team objective and one we wouldn’t have achieved, if not for the hard work and effort from all of our employees. It is the
care that they display for one another that ensures everyone gets home without harm each and every day."
The safety performance on the project is a direct reflection of the D&C JV’s ambition to be a role model in safety; setting high standards and continually improving safety performance. Construction along the 13 kilometre corridor will intensify in the coming months to ensure completion of the project by 2014.
