Winner of the ASI Improvement Initiative Award


The OneSteel Metalcentre Forklift Headlight Team was set up to improve forklift operations across the business nationally.

With a combined 135 years of experience in operational excellence and led by Branch Manager Jack Norris, the Team was recently awarded the National ASI Improvement/ Initiative Award. 

With all OneSteel Metalcentre sites operating forklifts, and identified as one of the top 5 potential hazards in our business, the Team’s task was to find ways to significantly reduce the risks to our people.

Amongst a range of improvements to procedures, training and compliance plate standardisation, the Team has been investigating technological enhancements including M-Fork and proximity detection.  These collective improvements will make a significant difference to reducing our exposure to mobile plant hazards.   

Well done team and congratulations on your award!

Paul Burnell - National Safety & Environment Manager
