Seqwater places great emphasis on safety, the environment and the quality of our work.
We have created a safety culture where all employees and contractors are responsible for safety, and empowered to make safer decisions.
Our Golden Rules
Our Golden Rules was developed to ensure safety is always at the forefront of our minds. It provides the foundation to build our strong and proud safety culture.
All Seqwater employees and contractors must comply with Our Golden Rules.
Life Saving Controls
Safety is a core value that underpins our everyday choices and actions. To help achieve these, our Life Saving Controls serve as a quick reference guide to controlling ten critical hazards associated with Seqwater operations.
Each Life Saving Control is supported by a detailed procedure, which must be referenced when conducting work.
Monthly contractor injury reporting
At Seqwater ‘care’ is one of our five values and incorporates our continued focus on and concern for the safety of everyone who works on or visits one of our sites.
Why is Seqwater implementing this reporting process?
There are two reasons:
- At Seqwater ‘Care’ is one of our five values. It incorporates our continued focus on, and concern for the safety of everyone who works on or visits one of our sites, including our contracting community.
- To enable this, Seqwater is implementing a new reporting process so we can include our contractors in our Lost Time Injury Frequency Rate (LTIFR) and Total Recordable Injury Frequency Rate (TRIFR) calculations.
Do contractors have to complete the report each month?
You will have to complete the report if:
- Your organisation provided service to Seqwater in the last month?
- Those services were carried out at a Seqwater site?
What will Seqwater do with the data in the report?
- The data will be aggregated into a single report for the Seqwater’s Executive Leadership Team and Board to support monitoring of Seqwater’s safety performance.
- All data provided is secured within Seqwater under the Queensland Government information security standard IS18:2018.
Do contractors still have to report incidents if they occur?
Yes. All incidents that occur on Seqwater sites should continue to be reported to your engaging officer and Seqwater’s incident hotline on (07) 3270 4040. If the number of incidents provided in your monthly injury report data don’t match with incidents reported, Seqwater will follow up to obtain additional details of the incident.
What do you do if previously reported data changes?
Changes to previously reported information are to be entered in the same spreadsheet as the current period information e.g. a previous MTI incident becomes a LTI if time is lost due to the need for surgery/treatment at a later date.
Newly acquired information, for a previous reporting period, is to be entered in the same spreadsheet as your current period information.
What happens if you do not complete a report for the month?
- The report template will be emailed at the start of Week 1 of the month
- You will be sent a reminder email at the end of Week 2
- A Seqwater Contract Engagement officer will contact you at the end of Week 3.
