Plant Assessor and Downer
Downer uses Plant Assessor to help inspect the company's considerable fleet.
Downer Australia’s commitment to plant & equipment safety cannot be overstated, which is illustrated by their decision to roll out Plant Assessor through all business units.
Downer Power Systems National Safety Manager, Leo Holmes, introduced Plant Assessor into that business unit in mid-2012, with his team subsequently facilitating a successful implementation.
At the same time, Downer General Manager of Plant in Western Australia, Larry Green, worked extensively with Downer National Zero Harm Committee on the need for a robust process for plant risk assessment for all divisions.
The result of this work was a decision to go National with the Plant Assessor system in 2013, involving an extensive roll out process between May and September of that year.
In discussing their decision, Larry said that “Plant Assessor is the only solution that I have seen that considerably reduces the subjectivity of the plant risk assessment process”.
Since the rollout, Downer has conducted a huge number of comprehensive plant risk assessments using Plant Assessor, some of which have been undertaken by members of Plant Assessor’s professional inspection team.
Downer has also utilised Plant Assessor in the management and verification of contractor plant safety on its projects.
The process of inspecting their considerable plant fleet continues in earnest.
At Plant Assessor, we are very happy to be working with the professional and committed team at Downer. We look forward to continuing to work together to identify opportunities to innovate and assist in the journey towards Zero Harm.
