“Even during this unprecedented period, safety will remain our unwavering priority. That is why we will embed the 5 Golden Rules into the fabric of our culture.” – Ian Mathieson, WGM Managing Director.
“To say that people may be distracted from their jobs during the COVID-19 pandemic would be a significant understatement. From a safety perspective, it’s important to remember that distracted employees are more prone to make mistakes. Right now, our employees are likely to be asking themselves multiple questions: How long will COVID-19 last? How will my employment be affected? Is my family safe? When people get distracted from their jobs, safety incidents tend to go up.
This is why WGM have chosen this time to introduce our 5 Golden Rules. We believe following these rules will significantly reduce the likelihood of a preventable incident occurring. Minimising risk is at the forefront of what we do, from the winning of work, through to our design, construction, commissioning and onwards into our operations and maintenance.
Only by setting the highest standards for ourselves will we be able to retain the trust of our customers, supply chain and the public. Adherence to our 5 Golden Rules means no injury, ill-health or incident caused by our work activities.
It’s hard to imagine a recent time during which the present and the future both seemed so fragile. But even during this unprecedented period, safety will remain our unwavering priority.
That is why we will embed the 5 Golden Rules into the fabric of our culture.”
