Following six consecutive years of meeting the International Foundation for Accident Prevention’s safety criteria and receiving gold status recognition, Liebherr-Australia Perth Branch achieved the pinnacle status at this year’s 2018 Safe Way Awards, the Platinum Award.

Liebherr-Australia Perth Branch also took home the Innovation Award, with our submission for the 15,000 hour R 9400 Excavator Engine Module Exchange System, developed and piloted in Western Australia. This creative concept beat eight other quality entries based on its risk reduction, with the safety risk reduced from Extreme down to Low. This is achieved by a more controlled work environment, fewer crane lifts, a reduction in working at heights requirements, and mental health benefits for employees due to reduced time away from home. Additional to the safety benefits, is the reduction of machine down time by 50%, increasing machine productivity for our customers.

This program, which has been adopted nationwide, is an outstanding example of Liebherr’s Core Values of Innovation, Quality and our Employees being a key factor to our success, and has been recognised by both client and industry representatives. Congratulations and thank you to the Liebherr Perth team members who have assisted to bring this innovation to fruition.
