Mammoet's Bryan Cronie on how to create a safety culture
By Murray Pollok19 September 2014
Bryan Cronie of Mammoet will use his presentation at the upcoming International Cranes & Transport Asia Pacific (CATAP) conference in Singapore to describe how the company has created a culture of safety in its operations.
“The message is about altering behaviours. That’s where you have to focus”, said Cronie, who is Mammoet’s Asia Pacific regional director for training and safety, health, environment and quality (SHE & Q).
Places are still available for the conference, which takes place at the Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel in Singapore on Tuesday 30 September. It is organised by International Cranes and Specialized Transport magazine and supported by organisations, including the Singapore Cranes Association and Singapore’s Workplace Safety and Health Council.
Cronie said that implementing a safety culture had enormous benefits, both in terms of the safety of the workforce, but also commercially; “It’s about how to be an ‘A’ supplier in the minds of the major customers and clients. The programme has been very successful for us in Asia. Commercially you get favoured if you have a track record on safety.”
In addition to describing how to change a company culture, Cronie will look at some of tools and techniques that Mammoet uses to maintain its focus on safety.
His presentation is one of many at the one-day conference, with representatives from companies that include Foster Wheeler, Sarens, Tutt Bryant Heavy Lift & Shift and Bridon Asia.
