BHP Billiton Chief Executive Officer Andrew Mackenzie today announced 19 finalists for the 2016 BHP Billiton Health, Safety, Environment and Community Awards.

One of the finalists was James ‘Muk Muk” McNeilage. James was a VM for many years before moving into mining at BMA then shifted to Newman into the Field Maintenance Superintendent role at Mount Whaleback .

All the finalists demonstrate best practice in sustainability from across BHP Billiton globally and today’s announcement recognises and celebrates the innovation and commitment they made to making their workplaces and our communities more sustainable.

James was recognised in two categories:

Health for Project: ‘Hydraulic test bench’ and the Sustainability Leadership Award

This is a great example of RAEME Ingenuity shining through to work smarter and safer!

The Association would also like to congratulate James on his outstanding efforts.
