Working in Partnership

As part of our efforts to promote working in partnership with our stakeholders, we have created a OHS networking forum. The forum, which is hosted on the business enterprise network Yammer, works much like Facebook in that members can post comments and upload documents, video and photos. The idea is that we share information such as safety bulletins, accident lessons, ideas or questions. Amongst the members of the forum are customers, key suppliers and our safety representative team. The forum is open to invited members only so that we can maintain a safe environment in which to share information and ideas.

If you are interested in joining the VCE stakeholder OHS network forum, please email with your name, job title, company name and subject title of “Yammer”. You will then receive your personal invite and link to join the forum (emails should be sent from the address that you wish to register by).


Linda will be hosting a Health and Safety zone on our stand at Hillhead this year. Customers and suppliers are invited to come along and join Linda for a cup of coffee, learn more about our approach to OHS and discuss hot topics. For those not planning to attend Hillhead we will be posting live to Yammer during the show with news and views.
