MMA’s health and safety strategy supports the Company’s Mission to be injury free by eliminating all incidents in the workplace. This is reflected in our comprehensive suite of health and safety policies and procedures that guide activity across the organisation.
During the 2016 financial year, MMA’s Total Recordable Case Frequency ("TRCF") (per million exposure hours) decreased from 1.2 to 0.36 across the organisation, a 70% year on year improvement on FY2015 and the best ever performance for the Company. This significant improvement is the result of:
Perfect Days are tracked via internal reports and communicated to staff via the Company’s intranet system on a Perfect Day dashboard. In the 2016 financial year, MMA achieved 310 Perfect Days across the whole organisation. This equates to a Perfect Day percentage of 85% – a slight decrease in the percentage from the previous year of 89%. Whilst the number of Perfect Days has reduced there has been a decrease in the severity of incidents and an increased reporting culture. In the 2017 financial year, our organisation-wide target is to have 365 Perfect Days.
In November 2014, MMA received the Lloyd's List Australia Project Cargo Award. This award was in recognition of achievements in the transportation of Project Cargoes using high levels of expertise and service, in an on-time fashion combined with innovative safe working practices. This was a significant achievement for the Company and an endorsement of our relentless focus on continually improving safety throughout the organisation.
This commitment is demonstrated within MMA’s policies, procedures and management plans which aim to prevent and minimise potential impacts. MMA’s Environmental Management System is integrated into the Integrated Business Management System and MMA is committed to promoting environmental awareness and accountability among our employees and contractors in line with ISO 14001: 2004 requirements.
MMA undertakes a program of environmental monitoring including monitoring of marine water quality and stormwater discharges, monitoring of sediment quality, the deployment of biosentinel oysters and the monitoring of mangroves in King Bay.
MMA’s quality system is certified to AS/NZS ISO 9001: 2008 in Australia and internationally and certified to ISO 18001 and ISO 14001 in our International Business. We continue to review and refine our Integrated Business Management System through a process of continuous improvement projects to ensure business efficiency.
