People & Community
GR Engineering actively participates in the local and wider community by providing services and or financial support to a range of not-for-profit organisations. Our site personnel raise funds for local programmes through our safety initiatives, providing ad hoc systems and support for local rural schools and the Royal Flying Doctor Service of Australia. Our head office has a computer replacement programme where redundant computers are donated to charity, both within the community in which we work or to third world countries. Our overseas project personnel have implemented training programs to educate the local workforce on the importance of correct safe work procedures and practices.
We actively encourage and support our employees in their efforts to raise funds for charities through participation in events such as:
- Rottnest Channel Swim
- Perth City to Surf
- MSWA Ocean Ride
- Ride to Conquer Cancer
- Youth Focus
We are also proud of our continued support of the following charitable organisations:
Starlight Children’s Foundation via Safety Incentive Scheme
GR Engineering is proud to participate in the Safety for Starlight programme which rewards safe workplace culture and celebrates the importance of incident free safety in our offices and work sites. GR Engineering has aligned a fundraising element to the success of achieving safety business objectives and KPI’s by committing a daily donation to the Starlight Children’s Foundation per LTI free day achieved in accordance with the GRESafe programme.
Our combined efforts have now presented the Starlight Children’s Foundation with in excess of $238,000 (as of July 2018) which truly has shown that working safely brightens lives.
This is an excellent outcome and we encourage all personnel to continue to be committed to working safely in avoiding any harm or injury in our workplace.
GR Engineering is proud to support Food Rescue WA (a service of UnitingCare West). In the past we have purchased and contributed to the operation of a refrigerated food recovery and delivery van, to collect fresh food from supermarkets in Perth metro and suburbs.
GR Engineering also sponsors the Cargo Cart Project, designed to collect left over prepared food from the CBD cafes. Rescued food is distributed to agencies which provide meals and/or food parcels to assist people in need.
Ronald McDonald House Perth
GR Engineering supports Ronald McDonald House by sponsoring two accommodation units at its new 47 room facility in Nedlands.
The Ronald McDonald House has been operating in WA since 1990 providing accommodation and support facilities to the families of young children requiring extended periods of hospitalisation.
As well as the emotional impact of long term child illness, parents also have to face the practical difficulty of maintaining a normal family life when one of their children is in hospital for extended periods. Ronald McDonald House assists these families by providing accommodation and household amenities which allows them to be with their child and live independently while away from home. It is anticipated that the new House will help up to 1,000 families every year, tripling the capacity of the old Ronald McDonald House.
Support from GR Engineering will assist with the running and upkeep of Ronald McDonald House and will help maintain the best possible environment in which parents can be with and support their sick children.
