SHAN RUPRAI - SRS ROADS

BEST INDIVIDUAL CONTRIBUTION TO WORKPLACE HEALTH AND SAFETY

SRS Roads is a leader in the Australian road and bridge building industry, with major projects including the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Kempsey Bypass – Australia’s longest bridge. For a large organisation with projects across the country, SRS wasn’t without safety gaps.

As safety group manager, Shan Ruprai was appointed to close those gaps.

By consulting with stakeholders throughout the organisation, Shan developed a blueprint for a holistic safety management system, which included comprehensive training, mentoring, risk assessments, competency verifications and audits.

Shan also introduced a web-based data capture and reporting system, closing the reporting gap between workers and management.

Through Shan’s efforts, SRS Roads now has a unified approach to safety – not to mention a 68 per cent drop in premium costs and a lost-time injury frequency rate of zero.
