FMG conveyors team hits 3 years injury free.

After the completion of their shift on the 15th February, our Fortescue Metals Group (FMG) Hedland Operations Conveyors Team reached another significant milestone, not in production or cost, but in the most important of all, safety.

We’re thrilled to announce that the team has achieved 3 years MTI/LTI free.

To achieve this result in our particularly high risk area of work is nothing short of incredible and once again the team sets an exemplary example of our safety culture, something that we can all be proud of.

The commitment the team has shown and continues to show towards safety, not only for themselves but for their workmates is the key reason that they have been able to achieve this result.

Some amazing stats that the team have achieved over the last three years includes:

  • 107 belt changes
  • 4 re-splices
  • 3 inserts
  • 223 splices
  • 22 trainees spent 4 swings (8448hrs) at Port getting practical mine site experience
  • Over 115 shutdowns
  • Over 550,000 man hours
  • Over 35,000 idlers replaced
  • Around 15,000 conveyor, scraper and idler inspections
  • 700+ scraper refurbs

Congratulations team and keep up the good work!
