QubeCare wins icare NSW Aware Awards

Qube is delighted to announce that we have received an icare NSW Aware Award for our QubeCare Health and Wellbeing program.

Qube has been on a journey over the past 5 years to reduce injuries and illness at work by continuously focusing on safety, health, and wellbeing. As a result, there has been a reduction in injuries by over 40% and over the past 5 years, Qube’s Lost Time Injury Rate has dropped by 65%.

One aspect of our health and wellbeing focus has been the QubeCare program – a series of initiatives aimed at educating and improving the physical and mental wellbeing of our workers across 130 sites both nationally and internationally.

“Qube’s story is a great example of how creating a culture of wellness, coupled with good safety practices, can help prevent accidents and injuries at work,” said icare’s Injury Prevention Manager, Jennifer Cameron.

“People are working longer than ever before. This calls for a cultural change to highlight the importance of work and the positive impact it has on someone’s health and lifestyle. Key to the success of these initiatives is the fact they are owned by our people and backed by our senior managers, who get involved and lead by example”, said Qube’s Group Manager Health and Wellbeing, Joe Toohey.
