                              Kentz successes of 2009 and the enduring commitment and resilience of our people.

                              At the end of October the value of our backlog stood at US $1.55bn, another record achievement for the
                              Group. The fact that our clients continue to award us work is due in no small part to the number one value
                              of the Kentz Group; Health and Safety.           And as of 30th November 2009 we delivered over

With safety as its main value, Thiess Kentz continues to look for new
opportunities to communicate the importance of safety.

At the Perth office, a centrally-placed safety cabinet is on display
which encourages employees to extend safety to all aspects of life.
Some essential safety items are on offer to encourage employees to
utilise basic safety gear whilst performing even basic household
chores.

Safety incentives have also been established for those based on site.
Employees are rewarded for their safety vigilance in the work-place
with vouchers, tool kits and merit certificates.

Below are some recipients who have been rewarded for their
safety-conscious attitudes in the workplace throughout 2009.

The employees of Thiess Kentz in Australia sponsored Operation Christmas
Child. Operation Christmas Child (OCC) is a unique project of Samaritan’s
Purse that brings joy and hope to children in desperate situations around the
world.
Last year, over 300,000 gift-filled shoe boxes were collected by teams in
Australia and New Zealand and were delivered to South East Asia and the
South Pacific. Globally, Samaritan’s Purse distributed an estimated 7.6 million
shoe boxes to children in 105 countries.

Ireland
Kentz employees in Ireland from the Clonmel office, the Aviva
Stadium site and the Ardkeen Hospital site continued their support
of the Secret Santa Project in association with the St Vincent de
Paul, Ozanam House Youth Group, in Dublin. Each employee chose
a boy or girl from a list of children’s names and bought them a
suitable gift.
The Society of St Vincent de Paul is a voluntary organisation in
Ireland working directly with people in need through an action-
oriented programme, attempting to effect positive change through
social justice. Their work primarily involves person-to-person
contact. However, they are also involved in key social services, co-
