In the previous post it was noted that the FMG CEO was reported as saying that the culture was strong. The reporting is correct. Here is the statement to the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX) by the FMG Company Secretary.
FMG is a publicly listed company. It is not a small private operation. It is a business with a market capitalization of around $18B. The statement to the ASX by the Company Secretary must be correct. It is required to be correct. The Company Secretary quotes the CEO. Hence there is no mistake. The culture definitely is strong according to FMG.
Yet safety itself was absent recently with profound consequences. Not once, or twice, but three times in quick succession. So culture and actual safety were not related.
The messages seems to be, if you are working on culture, think again.
