BOOM’s ongoing emphasis on safety leadership, best practice safety systems and our ‘Safety Always’ culture builds confidence with our employees and customers around predictable, reliable and consistent delivery of high-value lifting solutions.

Safety leadership structure
At BOOM, we take a three tiered leadership approach to safety.
Health, Safety, Environment & Quality (HSEQ) Committee
The HSEQ Committee, a sub-committee of the Board, meets quarterly and considers all aspects of BOOM’s safety environment. A summary of this committee’s responsibilities is set out in the HSEQ Committee Charter on our website.
Safety Leadership Team (SLT)
A safety leadership team, chaired by the Chief Executive Officer and comprising the general managers of every business unit, prioritises and monitors our safety environment and safety improvement activities. The SLT is supported by a team of safety professionals that operate within business units.

Personal commitment statements
All operational managers have prepared, and shared with their work groups, their personal safety commitment statements which articulate the individual behaviours they undertake to support BOOM’s goal of zero harm. All operational managers have their day to day safety responsibilities specified and monitored.
BOOM’s operational training program contains a significant safety element that embeds good workplace safety as an operational discipline.
