BRISBANE Broncos favourites Sam Thaiday and Corey Parker swapped footy boots for steel caps last week during a visit to the GLNG site on Curtis Island.

Their visit was part of Bechtel's Safety League, which challenges employees to improve their safety performance and reduce injuries while at work.

The rugby league stars spent two days on site highlighting the importance of staying focused on the job.

The site's Environment, Health and Safety manager Jeff Weldon said the players had helped motivate the workforce to continually improve their safety performance.

"Sam and Corey compared their pre-season training to how the workforce should approach personal safety and the safety of their mates every single day," Mr Weldon said.
