About Steve Taylor
Before commencing Prompt Safety Solutions as a consultancy business in September 2013, Steve worked in the construction industry for a global engineering company as OH&S Manager. Steve’s formal qualifications include Diploma in OH&S, Diploma of Quality Auditing, Cert IV Training and Assessment, Behaviour Based Safety Facilitator, ICAM Lead Investigator and HLTPAT005 Collect Specimens for Drugs of Abuse Testing. This along with practical ground floor experience as a process operator, crane operator, dogman, EWP, fork lift and front end loader operator has been invaluable in understanding what creates positive worksite behaviour and safety culture. TEAM – Together Everyone Achieves More.
Steve is passionate about safety and views all employees and every workplace with the attitude that there are families depending on their loved ones to come home safely.This was reinforced having his own daughter and son working with him on the largest alumina refinery expansion project in the South West which employed over 3000 people and undertaken in and around the operating refinery. A safe workplace is no accident.
The key to achieving a safe workplace is to build a strong safety culture with a well trained and competently supervised workforce supported by proactive management who see safety as the number one value in their business. This is achieved by implementing Safety Management Systems that not only meet OSH legislation requirements but are empowering, practical and duplicatable. Good Safety is Good Business.
20 years of experience as small business owner in the Agricultural, Manufacturing and Domestic sectors prior to entering the mining and construction industry has provided an understanding of the benefits of tailoring OH&S Systems to meet clients unique requirements and expectations for their particular business circumstances and budget. It’s got to be practical.
When not at work Steve loves spending time with family, being outdoors and being based in the Great Southern Wheatbelt, loves a big feed of yabbies.
