Category four - Best individual contribution to work health and safety
Mark Philippi is the health, safety, environmental and quality and human resources manager at CB Group. Mark also acts at the fire safety warden, senior first aid officer, nominated traffic officer and workplace counsellor.
Mark's health and safety contributions have included an overhaul of CB's work health and safety management system and an upgrade to a triple certified system. Mark also improved CB's work health and safety culture by securing genuine management commitment to a no-harm policy, and taking a 'people first' approach that involves making the changes personal for the workforce by asking for their individual commitment to the outcomes.
Mark's contributions have achieved:
- a much higher rate of compliance
- work health and safety structure and ownership
- more opportunities for the company to tender for new work
- a greater understanding of the reasoning behind work health and safety measures.
