Programmed people, doing it safely
MANAGING occupational risk is an essential element of any safety management system, especially in the mining industry where high risk activity is inherent.
Programmed Skilled Workforce (PSW) has been providing skilled and safety focused workforces to the mining industry in Tasmania for more than 50 years, and has safety management system trained personnel in each of its branches.
PSW was also the first service provider in the industry to be AS/NZS 4801 certified.
A continual investment in its people and systems has ensured Programmed provides the safest possible staffing solutions to its mining clients.
Programmed employs permanent teams of OHS professionals, and delivers innovative and effective risk management programs and strategies.
This ensures employees are work-ready when they arrive on site, assisting mining clients to achieve their key safety and production objectives.
“Service like this doesn’t come without clear focus, hard work, ability to deliver and a strong safety commitment to our people working in the mining industry,” PSW Tasmania regional manager Greg Butterworth said.
“With more than 100 years of collective mining experience in our Tasmanian branches, our depth of knowledge and insight into the industry allows us to effectively contribute to incident prevention and improved safety cultures.”
PSW is also looking to the next generation of workers in Tasmania.
Through Programmed’s Group Training Organisation (GTO) it currently manages more than 50 apprentices across all mining sites in Tasmania.
“We are passionate about developing the skills of local people so that we create both a generation of safer workers and a safer community,” Mr Butterworth said.
“We want the next generation of workers to be exposed to a culture of safety and zero harm as soon they kick-start their careers.”
