TasWater is Sharing how their Initiatives to Standardise & Increase Safety was implemented
Presented by: Dale Lovell
With a practical demonstration in the TasWater truckyard, Dale’s presentation offers a hand-on, naked-eye approach with interaction and a walk-through of the process his team’s fleet has been through in recent years.
“We wanted to show the Tassie fleet community just how far we’ve come,” Dale explains. “We had four businesses join together with records, consolidating, centralising and standardising happening at a rapid pace.”
The workload is never-ending. One job completes, chances are another has already sprung a leak. Large sewerage trucks with extreme high-pressure pumps, 30 light trucks, plus cranes, tip-trucks, light trucks and the regular light/passenger fleet, there’s a lot to manage.
The expression ‘If you’ve got time to lean, you’ve got time to clean’ fits the description of the TasWater fleet perfectly, but no keys are turned or drains unblocked without a stringent core attitude to safety.
“Our people are often working in confined spaces, underground, in all kinds of terrain from suburbia to the bush, with chemicals and often around volatile gases or liquids. So the absolute top priority must be to work as safely as possible,” Dale said. Trust us, they’ve got it nailed.
To that end, the TasWater fleet boasts systems and measures taken that make everybody think safety with every step. Come take a walk with one of the best in the business of safety in fleet management and get ready to roll up your sleeves.
