Teams on site at Talinga haven’t been immune from the below-average temperatures this winter.
On behalf of Origin Energy’s ‘Game Day’ initiative, Darren Lockyer recently travelled out to site at Talinga.
The program was designed to remind workers that ‘Every Day is Game Day’ when it comes to safety on site. Through a series of games and friendly competitions to facilitate team bonding, key safety messages were delivered and implemented to great success. It provided a great opportunity for the guys to meet a locally grown Australian football legend, and it was also a nice reprieve from a heavy work schedule.

The March edition of DDT Liners’ newsletter features stories about the IAGI Award of Excellence, our 100 Day Pond at Woleebee and recent training outcomes for our staff.
In the first week of March, 8 staff participated in an intensive course to obtain their Cert IV in Workplace Health and Safety. Taking place in Toowoomba, the course was run by the Learning Dimensions Network and was facilitated by our OHS Officer.
Constantly upskilling our workforce is a high priority and this course was a great opportunity to take our staff to a new level. Along with our Operations Director Barry Griffin, the supervisors and leading hands who participated in the course became proficient in the detailed aspects of Workplace Health and Safety which will allow them to not only carry out day to day functions but generally help to foster the overall culture of safety at DDTLA.
Despite a high workload and assignments that followed them home, all 8 were successful in gaining the qualification.
DDTLA has recently been awarded the IAGI Award of Excellence 2014. The International Association of Geosynthetic Installers (IAGI) is the professional association representing geosynthetic material installers and their industry partners. IAGI strives to provide a forum for geosynthetics installers to advance installation and construction techniques, and to strengthen the knowledge, image and communication within the industry. Every year they run the Installation (I2) Awards which are judged by a panel of industry experts and are designed to recognise significant contributions to the field of geosynthetic installation.
