Thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions Australia has reached a significant milestone in its journey to safety excellence, with its services department achieving over 1000 lost time incident (LTI) free days.

The company also delivered a lost time injury frequency rate (LTIFR) well below the industry standard of 4.3.

Thyssenkrupp hit the milestone despite its people and contractors being exposed to many hazards during repair and revamp work on mining equipment.

Company manager services centre Ian Austin said it is evidence that achieving and maintaining a strong safety culture is achievable.

“Special recognition must be made to the outstanding safety commitment of our managers, supervisors and workforce who conduct their work on site, in the workshop and warehouse, where majority of our risks are,” Austin said.

This achievement has been accomplished through the continued efforts of the services team and their commitment to safety, and their care and responsibility for each other.

Thyssenkrupp head of services Lee Corbett said Thyssenkrupp strives to be an industry leading original equipment manufacturer (OEM). This includes the goal of being “best in class” service provider.

“The recent achievement of ‘1000 days LTI free’ is a milestone the team is very proud of and a testament to the quality of work and the culture we strive for as a company,” Corbett said.

“This is just the beginning as we set more ambitious goals for the development of our safety culture and the development of the quality services we offer our customers.”

Thyssenkrupp supplies tailored, turnkey plants and components to the mining, chemical, fertiliser, cement and steel industries.
