At the OPS-1 Project (Operations and Maintenance) in Darwin, Darryl Dyson’s strong focus and commitment to achieving a high-performance safety culture in a dynamic, construction-based work environment is getting noticed – and not just by us.
During Darryl’s time as SHEQ Manager at OPS-1, the team has received multiple accolades for safety performance including the client’s Gold Standard Award three times in 2017 and twice in 2018.
OPS-1 is a unique environment with many risks and challenges. Darryl has taken great care to address and effectively manage the project’s changing risk profile.
His rapport with the client, his peers and the workforce fosters a culture where people feel they can speak up and raise issues that need to be addressed, and Darryl consistently takes ownership to resolve any that arise.
The current safety record of the project speaks for itself: 2.5 million work hours lost time injury free and 1,200 days recordable injury free. While the entire team is to be congratulated on this excellent safety performance, these results are also a testimony to Darryl’s professionalism and his commitment to putting safety and health above all else.
