3 April 2015

The webinar will take place on the 5th May 2015 between 10am -11am EST.

The presenter of this webinar, Paul Cook is Group Director - HSE at WorleyParsons, a global professional services company operating in 46 countries with over 35,000 personnel, delivering projects, providing expertise in engineering, procurement and construction and offering a wide range of consulting and advisory services, covering the full lifecycle, from creating new assets to sustaining and enhancing operating assets, in the hydrocarbons, mineral, metals, chemicals and infrastructure sectors.

Having identified regular road crashes WorleyParsons made road safety its most critical employee health and safety risk, it took global and local action.

Based on the recognised ‘5 pillar’ approach to road safety, the company has introduced road safety initiatives across its global operations while ensuring they remained relevant to local projects.

Supported by internal communication strategies that ensured road safety messages were embedded in safety practices, WorleyParsons’ road safety efforts reduced crash rates by 36 per cent in just one year.

The company also took a wider view, making improving road safety across the community a key tenet of its corporate social responsibility program and taking the lead on or volunteering engineering expertise to local road safety programs.
