Our safety activities focus on dialogue and we’ve created a workplace that encourages safe practices and speaking up. A safe business is a good business, and it’s also a better place to work.
Safety is personal. It’s about how we value and care for our colleagues, clients and the public. Our safety management systems are based on two key principles:
1. All injuries & accidents are preventable in the workplace.
2. Safety should never be compromised by other business objectives.
Our reputation depends on our ability to construct assets that are safe for the people that use them and the environment. Building safe assets begins with design and construction, which is why safety is a priority in our end-to-end service.
We designate an annual budget to a program of innovation, ensuring that our focus on safety is more than talk. Our team has developed numerous in-house safe work practices and proudly authored drilling training manuals that are used industry-wide. We’ve also developed products that make our work safer, for our industry and the public.
We designed, produced and implemented the Open Excavation Protection System (OEPS) to prevent people from falls at excavation sites. Our made-for-industry barricade completely secures the area around holes and trenches, making worksites safer for everyone.
We’ve got an established standard of care to prevent damage or harm to our natural environment. Under this standard, our projects have environmental plans to define our responsibilities and strategies to minimise impact. When a project is completed, we routinely conduct close-out reviews, to assess our performance and ensure continuous improvement.
We take our legislative responsibilities seriously and take great care to only work with subcontractors who work to the same high standards we do.
