Well Done to Skete Bennett – Accountability & Innovation Award  

McKay Drilling Management would like to recognise Skete, who recently demonstrated company values including Accountability and Innovation when he recently designed and fabricated his unique rack design some are calling “Skete’s Steel Stacking System.” His safety innovation demonstrated ownership, creativity and problem solving in order to prevent his co-workers from being exposed to the hazards associated with various sharp, unstable and heavy steel off cuts. Left untreated these offcuts have the potential to fall and cut or crush people’s hands or fingers. This simple and effective design allows the Wangara crews to sort, stack and secure all the loose off cuts behind the guillotine. Well done Skeeter!!!

Well Done to Kieyll Norwood- Accountability, Innovation & Performance Award  

McKay Drilling Management would like to recognise Kieyll, who recently went above and beyond in his role as a HSEQ Advisor by developing Google Sheet Hazard Registers that import data live from completed iAuditor Hazard Reports from all employees. The development of this register was both time consuming and displayed great commitment as much of it was done during his normal R&R period. The innovation that Kieyll has displayed has increased efficiency in the HSEQ Department for monthly reporting. This forward thinking and problem solving innovation that Kieyll has developed also allows greater visibility for supervisors, superintendents and managers over their respective teams completed hazards. This allows for real time trending, overview of participation rates and quality control of the hazard close outs. Well Done Kieyll. Your hard work is greatly appreciated!!!
