Gisborne’s HSE Manual has been updated as part of our commitment to continuous improvement throughout our company. The key revisions include:
Gisborne Industrial, along with Nahanni Construction and Ryfan Electric have been selected as the winner of the Rio Tinto 2017 Chief Executive Safety Awards – Best Contractor Category for their work and safety record at the Diavik Diamond Mine in the NW Territories. The Chief Executive Safety Awards are the highest recognition of safety excellence in the Rio Tinto Group. The Best Contractor category was introduced in 2016 in recognition of the critical role Rio Tinto’s contractor workforce – over 3,000 world-wide - play in the success of their world-wide operations.
In a letter announcing the award, Rio Tinto’s CEO, Jean Sebastian Jacques stated:
“It is a credit to Gisborne Industrial, and your partners, that none of you have incurred a lost time injury in five years. While this is undoubtedly an impressive result, I was even more pleased to hear that you and the Diavik team have developed a strong interdependent safety culture. The assessors who visited the site also noted your passion to integrate our Critical Risk Management program and eliminate fatality risks in the workplace. As a business Rio Tinto relies heavily on our contractor partners. You, Nahanni Construction and Ryfan Electric Limited are genuinely leading the way in demonstrating how we can all work together and keep our people safe. Thank you for your ongoing commitment to Rio Tinto and improving safety for everyone who works with us.”
