Company Recognized for Innovative Safety Program on GLNG Project
“The Australian National Safety Award of Excellence recognizes engagement by our colleagues and managers working together to develop a world-class safety culture on the project,” said Alasdair Cathcart, general manager of Bechtel’s LNG business line. “This recognition is a testament to our team’s commitment to always stay true to our values: performing good-quality work safely, to the highest ethical standard.”
Bechtel’s GLNG project team developed an innovative program called the Safety League to create a long-term, sustainable safety culture. Borrowing from rugby, the program uses teams and easily-understood sports terminology and concepts to motivate people and reward safe behaviors.
