"Everyone is dedicated to safety improvement and innovation to ensure all aspects of site safety are valued and reinforced."
Andy England, General Manager Rail said, "This is a fantastic effort by the Broadspectrum team on the Brisbane Airport Rail Contract. Congratulations to each of you for your efforts."
The team is fully committed to a workplace where reporting hazards and identifying and controlling risks are supported and promoted. Ultimately, the focus is the prevention of injuries to staff and customers.
During the 19 years of this contract, more than 26 million passengers have safely travelled on the airport rail link.
