Health & Safety

Our Health and Safety

Health and Safety is the most important aspect of our business and will be placed at the forefront of our operations and decision making.

We work in a high-risk sector and one where all employees and contractors know that despite the pressure of day-to-day work, safety should never be compromised. Our zero-tolerance approach accepts no excuses for unsafe work or people who put themselves or others at risk.

Clear & Simple

To assist clear understanding, we have simplified our Risk Assessments and translated into numerous languages.


If workers don’t agree/adhere to the work method outlined, we discuss openly and review to make tasks safer and more practical for execution.


If things don’t “feel” right on site; we encourage people to stop what they are doing, reassess concerns and implement improvements.


No matter what the time or financial constraint to make a task safer, we will make any improvements necessary.
