Meet Trevor Manyame, from Sydney Metro - Western Sydney Airport's Stations, Systems, Trains, Operations and Maintenance (SSTOM) Project team!

Trevor is a highly experienced and passionate health, safety, and risk professional, and he’s excited to be contributing to Australia’s biggest public transport project. Trevor is based at the Orchard Hills project office, New South Wales.

“I joined Webuild through the Parklife Metro Consortium in September 2023 to work on the SSTOM Project, and this role has allowed me to leverage my extensive experience in ensuring compliance and a safe working environment for all. 

“My journey with Webuild has been marked by a commitment to maintaining a healthy and safe working environment for all personnel involved with the project. As a project Health and Safety Advisor, I’m accountable for the day-to-day governance of health and safety activities on the project. 

“My responsibilities include providing advice and support to the field construction teams, implementing Health and Safety plans, policies and procedures, conducting compliance audits, performing workplace inspections, training and coordinating emergency drills and exercises. I also lead incident investigations, ensure the close-out of corrective actions, and promote a positive health and safety culture, something I am very passionate about.

“I decided to join the engineering and construction industry because it offers the unique opportunity to see tangible results from your work. Contributing to the development of infrastructure that has a lasting impact on communities is incredibly fulfilling. Additionally, the industry’s dynamic nature and the challenge of maintaining high safety standards in complex environments has always appealed to me.   

“I chose to join Webuild because of its reputation for excellence and unwavering commitment to health, safety, and environmental standards. The opportunity to work on a significant project like SSTOM was a major drawcard, along with Webuild's focus on innovation and sustainability, which aligns with my professional values.

“What I appreciate most about working for Webuild is the strong emphasis on safety and quality. The company's culture prioritises the well-being of all employees, fostering a supportive and collaborative environment. The commitment to continuous improvement and excellence in project delivery also makes it an exciting and fulfilling place to work.

“I can see a great future for myself at Webuild and am excited about the potential for professional growth and the opportunity to work on cutting-edge projects that push the boundaries of construction and engineering. The future with Webuild promises continuous learning and development, and I look forward to contributing to innovative and sustainable projects that benefit society. I would encourage anyone considering joining Webuild to take the opportunity.”

Trevor has been an exceptional addition to the project and his commitment to lifelong learning is not only admirable, but something that greatly benefits the whole team with his knowledge, skills and passion. 

“I am particularly passionate about sustainability and safety initiatives. Ensuring that our projects are environmentally sustainable and maintaining the highest standards of health and safety are areas where I believe we can make a significant impact. 

“I am also keen on people or community development initiatives, such as mental health, fostering talent, and ensuring continuous professional growth – these are crucial for our business’ success. 

“Currently, I’m pursuing a Graduate Certificate in Occupational Health Safety and Environmental Management and a Diploma in Leadership and Management. These qualifications, combined with my practical experience, enable me to contribute effectively to our team’s success and the broader goals of Webuild.

“I have recently been accredited as a Mental Health First Aider by the Mental Health First Aid Australia. 

“Outside of work, I enjoy spending quality time with my family and friends, and outdoor activities such as hiking and cycling, which help me stay active and connected to nature. I am also an avid reader and enjoy exploring topics related to health and safety, environmental management, and personal growth. I also have a keen interest in volunteering and participating in community development projects.”
