WESFARMERS SUSTAINABILITY REPORT 2018

Employee safety and wellbeing

WesCEF’s safety objective is to create a workplace free of high potential (HiPo) incidents which could seriously harm our people. 

The Safe Person Commitments program launched last year remains a primary tool to reinforce behavioural expectations for all employees when completing high-risk tasks. HiPo hazard reporting increased by 53 per cent in the year. 

The total number of recordable injuries for FY18 was 16 compared to six for the previous year. Of note, only four of the recordable injuries were significant enough to require time off work.

The Lost Time Injury Frequency Rate is 1.4 compared to 0.7 at the same time last year and the TRIFR is 5.4 compared to 2.2. The injury frequency rates over the past four years remain downwards trending.

WesCEF’s employee wellbeing program, Wellness at WesCEF, progressed in FY18 with 60 per cent of the workforce trained to date in mental health resilience and awareness.
