Key project achievements
The Port Kembla team has maintained an excellent Zero-Harm safety record of nil Lost Time Injuries (LTIs) for over 10 years.
Bis has a collaborative partnership with BlueScope focused on strict safety protocols, a well-established Continual Improvement programme, a strong innovation platform and value adding initiatives.
This positive long-term working relationship with BlueScope is reflected in consistently awarded contracts.
We attribute this to the team’s:
- focus on safety
- proactive and planned equipment upgrades, replacements, and operability improvements
- commitment to continuously adding value and reducing operating costs
Commitment to Climate Strategy
Bis supports BlueScope Steel with its public climate strategy and decarbonisation pathway, with the goal to reduce carbon emissions by 30% by 2030, towards future reduction of 100% by 2050.
Part of this includes the roll out of a new electric fleet of specialised assets from 2024. The fleet of battery powered high-capacity units will represent up to 63% of the new forklifts, with the aim to keep the fleet evolving.
Their configurations have been optimised specifically for BlueScope. Options include small footprint units, flameproof specifications, custom mast heights, extra wide carriages and thin tynes with chisel tips, dual drive tyres and a variety of specialised attachments.
