ExxonMobil Australia's Industrial Hygienists recognised with prestigious awards at industry conference
Two ExxonMobil Australia Industrial Hygienists have received prestigious awards at the recent Australian Institute of Occupational Hygienists (AIOH) Conference held in Brisbane.
The role of an Industrial Hygienist is important to ensure employees and contractors are safe and protected at work through the assessment, control and communication of potential workplace health hazards in a work environment.
Andrew Farrell, who works at the Longford Plant in the Medicine and Occupational Health (MOH) team, received the award for the Best Poster at the conference for his submission outlining the successful management of smoke haze and carbon monoxide to keep workers on our offshore platforms safe during the 2019/2020 bushfires.
Over 23 years with the company, Andrew has worked in various roles at Longford, Long Island Point and the Altona Refinery before transitioning to supporting the Australian upstream business in 2019.
Fouad Rizk received the prestigious 2022 Draeger Australia Young Hygienist award for his work in the MOH team providing industrial hygiene support to Mobil’s fuel supply operations. He also leads the global Exposure Assessment Strategic team, which develops corporate exposure assessment and monitoring strategies for ExxonMobil to assess, analyse and manage occupational health risks.
Dr Marcus Hirschfield, Occupational Health Manager said, “Being recognised by their industry peers in this way is a significant personal and professional achievement for Andrew and Fouad.
“I’m really proud of their contribution to maintaining a safe and healthy work environment, creating the best possible working conditions for the ExxonMobil Australia workforce.”
