Health, Safety, Environment & Quality

Health & Safety

The health and safety of our employees, contractors, visitors and clients is core to the way we do business. Our operations are underpinned by our Target 365 culture – our relentless commitment to the systematic management of health, safety and environmental management.

Our comprehensive suite of policies and procedures mandate activity across all of our operations.

During the 2018 financial year, MMA’s Total Recordable Case Frequency Rate (TRCF) was 0.28 per million hours worked. When compared to our industry and the industries in which we support, our TFCF is a world class performance and shows, that safety is embedded in our culture. Despite the downturn, we have remained focussed on operational excellence which is driving MMA’s TRCF. The result confirms the effectiveness of our Target 365 approach as we continue to evolve and produce sustainable improvements in safety culture and performance.

MMA is a regular contributor to industry health and safety forums and now represents the Asia Pacific Region on the International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA) Global HSSE Committee.
