TOOWOOMBA construction firm McNab has achieved a major milestone on the way to a goal of eliminating all injuries in the workplace.
The company has achieved more than one million work hours without a lost time injury across all its work sites.
From projects in Toowoomba to remote locations in Central Queensland, McNab staff and subcontractors have had the safest period in the company's 16 year history.
McNab CEO Mark Adamson said the milestone was a result of the company's determined focus on creating a 'Safety First' culture.
"Safety First is something that comes up here every single day", he said.
"All the McNab team are proud of this significant milestone, we see it as just the beginning as we continue to focus on ensuring that today, tomorrow, and every day in the future is incident free.
"We've being single-minded in ensuring safety is top of mind at all times, and that the policies and initiatives we implement are tried and tested to ensure everyone goes home each day unhurt".
McNab has about 100 site and office staff based from its Toowoomba head office, with two major projects set to commence in the Garden City within the next six months.
