Pilbara News - - News -

More than 20 lo­cal indige­nous peo­ple are work­ing on the North West Shelf Hous­ing Re­fur­bish­ment Pro­gram, with nine of those par­tic­i­pat­ing in trade train­ing pro­grams.

Wood­side facility man­age­ment team leader Peter Balfe said Wood­side had been work­ing with Pin­dan and H&M Tracey Pil­bara to max­imise indige­nous par­tic­i­pa­tion.

“We’ve been im­pressed with Pin­dan and H&M Tracey’s shared de­ter­mi­na­tion to de­liver on their indige­nous par­tic­i­pa­tion com­mit­ments, hav­ing en­gaged more than 20 lo­cal indige­nous peo­ple in the first few months of the pro­gram, with nine of those par­tic­i­pat­ing in trade train­ing pro­grams,” he said.

Pin­dan and its sub-con­trac­tors had en­gaged 10 indige­nous em­ploy­ees as part of the pro­gram.

Pin­dan direc­tor Dickie Dique said his com­pany was proud of the indige­nous en­gage­ment it was achieving on the project.

H&M Tracey Pil­bara direc­tor Craig Ry­dquist said the struc­ture of the con­tract es­tab­lished for the pro­gram was ide­ally suited to sup­port­ing lo­cal and indige­nous em­ploy­ment and train­ing out­comes.

H&M Tracey Pil­bara has pro­vided work-readi­ness op­por­tu­ni­ties to 10 lo­cal indige­nous peo­ple on the project to date.
