"As an auditor for the NSW premium discount scheme (instigated by WorkCover NSW), I had the pleasure to audit Mitre 10. Wendy Ludwick had provided consultancy to Mitre 10 in preparation for the audit and during my involvement. As a consultant she was collaborative and ensured the employees owned the process. This resulted in commitment and enthusiasm and resulted with reductions in injuries. Wendy was effective by ensuring the systems in place were at a high standard and she had developed monitoring tools to ensure the various sites kept on track."
