Health and safety is everyone’s business, and everyone is expected to share in our commitment to avoid all accidents and incidents, which may cause personal injury, property damage or loss of any kind.

All employees are expected to act safely at all times to ensure their own welfare and that of their fellow employees and others in the workplace.

We will ensure the safety of our employees by:

  • Developing and implementing emergency and evacuation procedures

To achieve this we will:

  1. Systematically identify and control all hazards in our workplace.  Where there are significant hazards we will take all practicable steps to eliminate, isolate or minimise these hazards to prevent injury or damage
  2. Inform all employees of these hazards and the hazard controls
  3. Ensure all employees are properly trained and supervised
  4. Record all incidents and accidents in our workplace, and take practicable steps to prevent these events from happening
