To Whom It May Concern

Re: Bradley Bowden

Mr Bradley Bowden, an employee of Safety Resources Australia Pty Ltd (SRA) has been engaged on the SWI Development and Implementation Project for HWE Mining at BHP Billiton's Eastern Ridge, Area C and Yandi mine sites.

The work task involved the initial review of existing JSA's, data and photograph collection for the development of the SWI, preparation of a risk assessment, team peer review update, prior to gaining final management sign off.

Bradley has always displayed excellent teamwork, enthusiasm and professionalism whilst conducting the work which has resulted in the on time development of the required change following the initial draft. He is also very competent with Word and Excel which we used extensively throughout the project.

Furthermore, both Bradley and SRA have demonstrated flexibility with respect to rosters and different site attendance to enable his work to fit in with plant shutdown, where a majority of the data gathering occurred.

The only reason for terminating Brad's involvement with the project was the purchase of HWE Mining Newman Services by BHP Billiton and their desire to have their own personnel develop the SWI's.

I would have no hesitation in engaging Bradley Bowden from SRA in any other projects that would need to utilise additional contract labour of his calibre.

Yours sincerely
