Teys Australia OHS Achievements
Throughout the years, Teys Australia has become recognised throughout the Red Meat Industry as a leader and innovator with OHS practises, continuously striving to improve our processes and minimise all associated risk. We were recently awarded first prize at the 2008 Occupational Health & Safety Innovation Awards for the " Development of Manual Assist / Co-Biotics Devices". This award is sponsored by AMPC and MLA and recognises creative and practical solutions to meat processing problems, and promotes their application across the industry. Teys were unanimously selected for this award through the people's choice and the judge's choice voting process. The Red Meat Industry identified knuckle / thick flank and aitch bone pulling as the most arduous boning room task to perform in beef processing, contributing to higher than normal injury and staff turnover rates. Teys Australia championed the development of two manual assist or “co-biotic” devices that reduce the strain and arduous physical nature of these tasks, the first in Australia. Testing of both phase 2 prototypes has been successfully completed and both are now ready to move into commercialisation.
