Arrium Mining and OneSteel Whyalla Steelworks’ commitment to safety has been recognised yet again, with two employees honoured at the recent Safe Work Awards.
Iron Baron senior mining engineer Tian Oosthuizen was named the winner of the Best Individual Contribution to workplace health and safety category, with Mark Bishop awarded a high commendation in the same category for his work as a production operator at steelmaking.
According to award judges, Tian’s passion and dedication to improve safety at work is what sets him apart.
“Tian is a frontrunner in work health and safety, as he promotes a positive safety culture through excellent leadership skills, mentoring, audits, and incident management,” the judges said.
Mark was recognised for actively promoting safety amongst his peers and continually looking for opportunities to make the steelmaking department a safer place to work.
The awards – organised by SafeWork SA – saw more than 60 entrants compete across four award categories, reflecting an ongoing commitment in South Australian workplaces to improve work health and safety standards.
Speaking at the awards, SafeWork SA Advisory Council presiding member Tom Phillips AM said continuous improvement remained a priority.
“Recognising and rewarding innovative ideas, practices, leadership and commitment to work health and safety is central to ensuring that all of our workers return home safely,” he said.
“South Australia has long been home to innovators and tonight’s eight award winners remind us that this tradition is alive and well.”
