Our Approach

Our Vision is to create robust, pragmatic and well-understood and implemented health, safety, quality and environmental strategies to guide and assist our people in maintaining a safe workplace for each and every employee, subcontractor, client, supplier and visitor.

Our “Keeping our mates safe” program reflects our commitment to ensuring staff get home safely, every day, and is at the heart of everything we do. It’s embedded in our safety policies and procedures, communications, onsite practices, training and the way we engage with clients on each and every project.



We actively empower and encourage employees to have a “hands on” role in managing the safety and welfare of both themselves and the people they work with, in and out of the workplace.

To do this, we:

  • Provide safe and healthy working conditions for the prevention of work-related injury and illnesses
  • Eliminate hazards and reduce risks to our workers
  • Involve, empower, communicate and consult with workers in identifying workplace hazards and implementing safety improvements and interventions
  • Investigate all incidents and implement preventive actions to minimise the risk of reoccurrence and maintain continual improvements
  • Communicate our Health and Safety policy to all employees and other interested parties

We are committed to complying with relevant Work Health and Safety Legislation and other obligations, including ISO 45001.
ISO 45001 provides a robust framework for managing OHS risks and opportunities, providing a safe and healthy workplace and protecting personnel
