Safety is a core value and our safety results place us at the top of our industry.
We nurture and maintain our culture of safety and care by having the right processes and systems, and by recognising and rewarding the right behaviours.
We train our managers and supervisors to be great safety leaders. In addition to traditional safety metrics, their performance measures include the number of safety audits they carry out and how many ‘SafeTalks’ they deliver.
Our site safety teams are structured and resourced effectively, while our Site Safety Managers are core members of our project leadership groups and have a powerful voice across all site activities.
Every employee's job description includes an individual set of safety obligations focused on keeping them, their colleagues and the community safe.
Every project maintains an HSE Risk Register and our teams work from a comprehensive set of Safe Operating Procedures, Safe Work Instructions, and JSEAs. These are all accessible 24/7 via our online library.
