The Cleanaway team at Chevron’s Wheatstone LNG plant in WA holds a significant safety record of zero Lost Time Injury (LTI) and Medical Treatment Injury (MTI) incidents since coming on board in 2017.

For Branch Manager John Murphy, a strong safety culture is as important as delivering a quality service and it’s a message he drives through to his team every day. “We pride ourselves on living our Home Safe value and we take that home with us. We have a collective ‘can do’ attitude and a great customer who knows they can rely on a safe and reliable service every day. It’s a great team and I’m proud to be a part of it!” said John.

Cleanaway provides solid and liquid waste disposal services at Wheatstone, backed by an onsite fleet of liquid ring vacuum tankers, flatbed trucks, front and rear lift trucks, a 32-tonne forklift with a container lifting attachment and an impressive yellow gear collection. Our service packages the collected waste at an onsite transfer station before transporting it to our facilities for treatment and disposal.

“No two days are the same for our operators as they are skilled to operate all equipment. An operator can go from servicing front lift bins around site and the transfer station to vacuuming out a water tank on the LNG site.” John explains.

“Operators are rotated through all tasks over a 14-day period not only to maintain skill levels but to provide job variety to keep them engaged on the task at hand.”

At Cleanaway, the wellbeing of our people and the communities where we operate is our priority. Find out more about our commitment to health and safety here.
