| 05 DBCT is committed to providing a safe  and healthy work environment for all  workers. The safety of our people  and surrounding communities is a key  priority. The terminal’s health and safety  policies guide our compliance with  applicable laws, DBCT standards,  contractual and other requirements  as a minimum foundation of performance. SUSTAINABILITY IN ACTION: WORKER SAFETY Everyone at the terminal has a role to play in working together to effectively identify and eliminate unsafe conditions and activities from the workplace and promote a healthier and safer workforce. Certified to the ISO 45001 Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems standard, the terminal operator uses a risk-based approach, and an audit program ensures critical controls are verified for effectiveness. DBCT has a number of overarching safety programs and frameworks, including an in-depth Occupational Health and Hygiene Management Program and Material Risk program. The terminal operator’s Safety Observer Program is designed to improve safety performance by creating a positive safety culture within each work team to move the organisation to a culture of interdependency. DBCT actively promotes a healthier workforce through identification and management of occupational hygiene risks. The implementation of the Occupational Health and Hygiene Management Program provides an educational and strategic approach to managing exposure to hygiene risks including noise and respirable dust. The program provides for testing at regular intervals for those personnel at risk of exposure. Contractors engaged to undertake major capital works are appointed as Principal Contractors. They are subject to rigorous pre-qualification checks including reviews of their safety systems and safety management, with ongoing compliance checks throughout construction. The terminal has 1,706 marine piles that support jetty and berth structures in a predominately open offshore location. The original protective treatment on a large number of piles was reaching the end of its effective life and required increasing maintenance to ensure structural integrity. The areas in the tidal zone are difficult to access and poses a risk to the safety of the personnel undertaking the work. DBCTM, together with John Holland designed a ‘Mobile Swing-stage Gantry’ with the objective of improving safety and reducing the costs associated with the pile maintenance. The gantry eliminated the need for high risk drop/suspended scaffolds and significantly reduced the time associated with personnel working so close to the water and around tides. The pile maintenance solution involved wrapping of the piles with a protective tape wrap system, rather than the traditional abrasive blasting and painting. This solution results in lower maintenance requirements over the long-term and further reduces the risk to personnel when executing the task. Electrical and fabrication services for the gantry were provided by local businesses and the gantry was short-listed at the 2017 National Safety Awards of Excellence.
