Louise came to Australia from Scotland in 1995 on a working holiday and has stayed here ever since. She started working with Aurizon in 2012 as a Rail Safety Investigator.
“Modelling safety behaviour is part of what we do as a safety team, so for us to be able to have a conversation with someone, it’s really important for us to live the value,” Louise said.
Neil Backer, Vice President Safety, Health & Environment at Aurizon also appears in the video.
“Aurizon’s safety journey in the 33 years that I’ve been here has changed drastically. It has become the focus of our business and I think there is a belief out there that good safety equals good business.
“Aurizon’s Lost Time Injury Frequency Rate (LTIFR) as at the end of financial year 2014 is 0.28 - that is in excess of a 95% improvement over the last four years.
“To give you an indication, as at May 2014, the lowest total recordable injury frequency rate of Class 1 rail companies was 4.85 and Aurizon is at 2.8 in 2014. That is better than world class,” Neil said.
