Senex maintains solid safety performance during increased work activity, with a focus on improvements to our safety culture, systems and processes.
During the 2017 financial year, Senex continued to put safety first for our people, activities and assets, focusing on key areas to support this, including:
- Conducting further injury prevention training with field personnel across the Cooper and Surat Basins;
- Continued active participation in the collaborative industry group Safer Together; and
- Improving the health and safety culture, leadership and systems.
Total work hours increased by 36% against FY16. Three recordable incidents occured in the Cooper Basin, equating to Senex’s Total Recordable Injury Frequency Rate (TRIFR) of 4.0 based on one million work hours.
Senex remains active in the Safer Together initiative, a Queensland natural gas industry safety forum established in 2014, with more than 90 member companies. Participation in this group reinforces our commitment to consistent and continuous improvement of safety standards across the industry.
Senex led the launch of the Cooper Medivac 24 night-vision capable helicopter in the Cooper Basin in 2014. The first of its kind in Australia, this initiative reflects our commitment to the safety and wellbeing of workers, residents and visitors to this remote area of Australia. Read more
