Mining supervisor champions safety

Jamie Pickels, Site Supervisor in the Tyre Management business (Otraco), has been awarded the Best Individual, Workplace Health and Safety Achievement at the National Safety Awards of Excellence.

 Jamie was given the award after being recognised for a safety initiative he championed at the Meandu Mine in Queensland.

After identifying a task he deemed high risk to workers (fitting the tyre and rim assemblies), Jamie developed a set of tools to reduce the risk and improve efficiency. Called 'Spacer Plates', this device now allows his team to complete the Hitachi dump truck tyre and rim assembly fitment task in a safe, quick and efficient manner.
