BOOM is an equal opportunity employer and employs over 550 employees in a variety of positions. We pride ourselves on our engineering capability with extensive CAD design experience through our supervisors and engineers providing our customers with technical expertise in safe lifting solutions.
We continue to focus on our strategy of building organisational capability through our people, processes and systems to deliver our value proposition to our customers and to generate strong returns for our shareholders.
Our continued operational focus on safety with the appointment of key safety professionals at a state and business unit level ensures the consistent and organisation wide delivery of the BOOM Safety Message and the management of risks within our business.
BOOM is committed to seeking and retaining the finest talent to support our growth and performance objectives. We are committed to treating all people with respect and recognise that our diversity and broad range of skills helps us thrive.

Our commitment to indigenous affairs supports our customers and communities in Central Queensland and Western Australia. Our National Indigenous Employment Framework provides a basis for localised strategies for generating work opportunities and developing sustainable relationships with indigenous communities. We continue to make progress in the North West through indigenous development programs and traineeships.
Training & development
Investment in developing our people is a key strategic priority. Many of our supervisors have completed a Certificate IV in Frontline Management, with key projects generated from this program already implemented in the business.
We continue to invest in training and development for our operational staff to ensure operating tickets are maintained, safety standards are upheld, customer site inductions are current and operators are vocationally competent to meet the needs of our customers.
