South Walker Creek accredited as a Breastfeeding Friendly Workplace

Congratulations to the team at BMC South Walker Creek on becoming an accredited Breastfeeding Friendly Workplace by the Australian Breastfeeding Association (ABA)!

The site has been officially signed off after the creation of a dedicated space for mothers to express. 

Annie Ryan, Engineering Manager, said it's a big step forward for inclusion and diversity on site.

"It was great to have support from the whole site leadership team, particularly South Walker Creek's General Manager Edan Stolberg" said Annie. 

The project took around nine months from early research to sign off from the ABA. Local Moranbah business JEM Earthworks carried out the install under BMC Engineering. 

The significance of the space was reinforced with the implementation of a breastfeeding policy on site outlining lactation break entitlements.
