WDS Mining services has been rolling out the Strong4Life manual handling system for the last several months as part of a significant effort to reach their goal of zero harm. Read below to see what Gerry Lamb from WDS has to say about the program.
“WDS Mining has partnered with IPAR and Fit4Life in implementing the Strong4Life™ system across all WDS Mining projects in Australia, as one part of our roadmap to zero harm. Our company operates in a difficult and challenging environment heavily reliant upon manual handling activities. With great pride WDS Mining has reported an overall improvement of 56% reduction in injuries in 2010, which results in a safety record that our competitors can only hope to achieve!”
