Safety milestone announcement

Tuesday, May 31, 2016

I am extremely pleased to announce that COR Cooling has recently celebrated a significant safety milestone in achieving “Three Years” Lost Time Injury Free.

This achievement includes all of COR’s six locations across Australia making this even more significant given some locations have now reached in excess of “Seven Years” Lost Time Injury Free.

COR Cooling operate across six locations in all major mining regions of Australia and this important milestone has been achieved through its ongoing belief and dedication towards its Zero Harm culture.

Safety has become our number one priority and it is paramount to the way we operate on a day to day basis.  The company’s focus on safety aims to ensure the highest level of compliance throughout all its sites across Australia and that each and every person can go home after work free from injury.

Of course statistics are not what guides our culture, we know statistics only tell the story after the event.  Instead we are guided by our values and our cultural beliefs and we believe in Zero Harm.    We have put into place robust and fully accredited international standards and systems in both safety and quality processes that have been invaluable and we have seen a huge team effort with tremendous buy- in from all our managers and employees and I congratulate our entire team at COR in reaching this wonderful milestone.

Christmas Message from the CEO

Friday, December 18, 2015

I think it’s important that we use this time of year to reflect back on what has been achieved during the year at COR Cooling as a group and as individuals. I must say that it gives me great pride in the knowledge that COR has made a number of significant achievements throughout the year.

There is no doubt that our team is one of our greatest strengths as an organisation, along with our culture. We talk a lot about our values and how we can make a difference and how we can add real value to our customers. It is really important that we continually recognise and appreciate that it is indeed our own people and their skills and attitudes that make us who we are and therefore separates us from the crowd; we simply get on with it. We have a great culture and a great team of people at COR and I really appreciate the ongoing support, the hard work and the commitment that every person has shown during the last 12 months.

This commitment has enabled COR to continue to develop and continue to move forward in very challenging times. I am particularly proud of our achievements in safety. In 2015 COR has achieved 1000 Days Lost Time Injury Free across all divisions Australia wide. COR and its management was also recently recognised by the Western Australian Government when our Branch Manager in Kalgoorlie, Lloyd Needham received the “Individual Commitment to Safety Award” for 2015. Our safety track record over the past three years is among the best in the industry and recognition of this nature confirms we are on the right track. It takes a huge commitment to reach these sorts of milestones and I thank all our managers for their ongoing commitment to our safety values.

This year, COR has also been successful in winning a number of significant service agreement contracts with major mining companies in various states. In Western Australia, COR recently won a major five year service contract with one the world’s largest mining companies servicing their entire HME fleet operating at all sites in the iron ore sector of WA. COR was recognised as being the most capable of providing all the services required and was able to demonstrate the greatest value to the client following a lengthy and very detailed process. During this time, COR’s facilities were also audited and visited on numerous occasions and our accreditations and standards in safety, quality and the environment were well recognised. COR also won a significant tender for a similar services agreement in the Hunter Valley earlier in the year. I would like to acknowledge and thank our very loyal and supportive customers all around Australia for the way they have allowed COR to engage with them and to be able to collaborate and find real value in what COR has to offer.

Overall it has been a busy and very productive year for the COR group. We have celebrated and recognised individual achievements of our staff, our business and our milestones and we are optimistic about the future. We have much to look forward to so keep an eye on our web site and social media for further exciting news and announcements to come in 2016. We have a number of existing projects, new products and more major contracts to come early in the year and we are working on these in the background whilst our people continue to strive to exceed our customers’ expectations and help them achieve their goals. I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and safe, happy and prosperous New Year.

Kind Regards,

Warren Arthur
