We’re pleased to announce the appointment of Sheree Jones as Health, Safety and Environment Manager.
Sheree has more than 15 years’ broad experience across various industries nationally, with the ability to operate at a strategic and hands on level, partnering and building robust relationships at all levels within a business to deliver outcomes for workplace health and safety.
Sheree has a proven track record of embedding HSE systems, providing technical HSE advice, guidance, coaching and mentoring to support a positive workplace culture of care and safe behaviours.
She joins Leighton O’Brien after two years at ECL Group Australia as Health, Safety and Environment Manager. During this time she developed and implemented newly created meaningful HSE metrics, removing the focus from compliance only targets and KPI development and implementation for all levels of employees to support delivery of strategic and annual plans.
Sheree believes health and safety should be at the front of everyone’s minds.
“Every worker has the right to go home safe and healthy every day and every employer has the responsibility to provide a safe work environment.
“When a workplace is safe, workers feel more comfortable and confident when they are in that environment. Productivity increases and absenteeism drops when employers take steps to implement effective safety programs.
“My intent is to work collaboratively with employees, customers and service providers to engage and deliver continuous improvement initiatives to our WHS management, performance and guiding principles to enhance global best practices and support our cultural journey,” she said.
Leighton O’Brien Global President of Field Technologies, Chris Cooper said: “Safety is in our DNA at Leighton O’Brien. We welcome Sheree to the team and look forward to implementing strategies that further enhance our HSE performance and laser focused commitment to achieving zero harm in our workplace and our partner activities.”
