How Walz Group worked with us to upgrade their safety culture, and reduced incident rates through employee engagement workshops.
“These workshops are really helping our teams to share their safety thoughts with us.”
Walz Group are still family owned, they very much have a ‘mates looking after mates’ culture, and they care enough about the psychological and physical safety in their organisation to run a range of workshops that were designed to engage their employees in the safety culture journey of the business!
Walz Group cares about their people. Plain and simple. And regardless of how good their safety culture might be now, there is always room for improvement, and room for engaging employees in the process. But, organising 229 team members from four different towns and cities around Queensland is a logistical challenge. Not too big of a challenge to impact on improving safety in the business, though.
Over a three-month period, TGG were engaged by Walz Group to run 20 workshops, for 229 staff members, and asked each staff member 25 questions about the safety culture in the organisation. Each of the workshops ran for about four hours, and not only included the safety culture survey, but they also included the development of a Team Charter, that all team members developed and signed onto. A great show of support for the process!
The workshops were all opened by Walz Group senior leaders, they were extremely engaging, and the survey results could be seen instantaneously (yes, straight away). And TGG always received great feedback on the workshop delivery.

The Wrap Up
At the end of the program, TGG provided Walz Group with a detailed report, including the mapping of the Walz safety culture against the Bradley Curve (credit: Dupont), all of the survey question responses, and actions that were raised during the workshops, as opportunities for safety culture improvement.
Appreciate all the work that has gone into this and I’m very proud to support this project.”
– Matt Campiutti, the Walz Group CEO
In short, there are now 229 people at the Walz Group who walked away from the workshops with safety at front of mind. They left the workshop knowing that their business cares about their safety. They walked away from the workshop knowing that the care factor in the organisation will ensure that they are in ‘safe hands.’
And of course, incident rates are trending down. Less people are, and will, get hurt whilst working at Walz Group.
