OCTOBER SAFETY MONTH EVENT - MORANBAH
FSI has taken a proactive approach to safety by hosting several National Safe Work Month events across our branches during the month of October.
On Tuesday 22nd October, FSI hosted our final Safety Month event at our Moranbah branch which involved staff and customers who work in the QLD Bowen Basin region. Keynote Speaker, Jed Millen (WHSQ Safety Advocate) shared his personal experience on how his preventable workplace injury changed his life and the ongoing impact that his permanent injury has had on himself and his family. The message that Jed delivered was clear, ‘we work safe not only for ourselves but just as importantly, for our families, friends and loved ones that we go home to each day’ further driving FSI’s safety motto of Think Safe, Work Safe, Home Safe.
OCTOBER SAFETY MONTH EVENT - BRISBANE
FSI prides itself on being an industry leader in safety and we demonstrate this through our actions not just our words.
Yesterday our Brisbane Head Office hosted an event in recognition of National Safe Work Month. This year’s theme ‘Be a Safety Champion’ demonstrates how everyone can support a safety culture at their workplace.
Keynote Speaker, Shane Webcke (QLD Safety Ambassador, football legend and sports presenter) shared his story on the impact that his father’s workplace death had on his family and emphasised the importance of staying safe at work. Shane’s key messaging was that we ‘own our choices’ and to ensure that if you see someone doing something unsafe, say something.
Shane shared personal stories on how our typical Australian ‘she’ll be right’ attitude can lead to terrible and unchangeable outcomes. FSI’s safety event was attended by the FSI Brisbane team and our valued customers with catering provided by our friends at The Good Grub Club through Anglicare. The Good Grub Club educate homeless youths on good food nutrition, food preparation and presentation.
Thank you to all involved on a valuable and successful event! FSI will hold another National Safe Work Month Event at our Moranbah branch on Tuesday 22nd October with keynote speaker Jed Millen.

800 DAYS LTI FREE
It’s been a busy few weeks for FSI. On Monday 7th October 2019 we achieved yet another milestone – 800 Days Lost Time Injury (LTI) Free.
This achievement could not have been reached without the hard work and commitment from all employees past & present actively participating in the company safety values despite our ever growing and geographically dispersed workforce, at times operating in high risk environments.
We couldn’t be prouder of our team’s continued efforts in making FSI a safer place to work and ensuring that all employees can ‘Think Safe, Work Safe, Home Safe’ each and every day.
