Being open about poor performance and how to fix it hasn’t stopped Aurora Energy from winning the Work Health and Safety Reporting Award six years in a row.

Winners of the Australasian Reporting Awards (ARA) were announced at a ceremony at the Four Seasons Hotel Sydney on 19 June.

Australasian Reporting Awards Limited, an independent non-profit organisation supported by volunteer business professionals and professional bodies, runs the awards.

Safe Work Australia sponsors the work health and safety (WHS) award.

“We have had a roller-coaster ride with our safety performance during this [six-year] period, and there were some years where we were extremely disappointed with our results,” said Aurora Energy’s CEO, Dr Peter Davis, in a media statement.

“It’s important to be open and honest about the reasons behind poor performance and, most importantly, to outline how we will address them.

“Our commitment to transparent reporting helps us to drive process improvements and cultural change with our employees and gives our shareholders confidence in our strategic direction.”
