Employee Participation

We will provide reasonable opportunities for our Employees to participate effectively in ongoing processes for improvement in health and safety. This includes involving them in Hazard Reporting, the Job Safety Analysis process, a Training Needs Assessment, Safety Meetings and Accident Investigations.

Hazards reported by Employees and ways of controlling them will be entered into the Hazard Register. Job Safety Analyses will be updated regularly to reflect all newly reported hazards and work tasks.

Hazard Management

We will systematically identify all hazards in our workplace by completing a Job Safety Analysis for the jobs we undertake. We will use Employee knowledge and experience, along with other available information from SARNZ, Site Safe, ACC and other sources to ensure our Job Safety Analysis has identified all relevant significant hazards and controls required to achieve our goal of minimising injuries, incidents and accidents.

We will maintain a list of our chemical hazards and will obtain Material Safety Data Sheets for them. All Employees will have immediate access to MSDS when working with these chemicals.

Our completed Job Safety Analysis will be used for new Employee Inductions, Employee Training, Toolbox Safety Meetings and Workplace Inspections.

Employee Induction & Training

We will induct all new Employees to the significant hazards they will likely encounter working on our sites.

All Employees will undertake Site Safe Passport induction training every two years so that they receive an ongoing common and basic understanding of construction safety and so that they are prepared to actively participate in our own safety activities.

All Employees will be trained to safely carry out their work. We will identify the specific types of training each Employee requires based on his or her responsibilities, we will arrange training to ensure they are able to act safely carrying out these responsibilities. We will use Job Safety Analysis to ensure we cover the relevant hazards and controls for each Employee. We will maintain a record of all training activities for each Employee.

We will hold regular monthly Safety Meetings. These meetings will be used to discuss hazards and controls that will be encountered while working on-site. We will involve our Employees in these meetings asking for their input about the hazards and controls needed to do their jobs safely. We will also develop and discuss Job Safety Analysis during our Safety Meetings. We will record our Safety Meetings and display them on our Safety Notice Board.

Incident Reporting & Investigating

We will encourage our Employees to report all incidents and accidents. We will not blame Employees for reporting or having incidents, but will look at our Company’s own policies and procedures that may have lead to them. We will investigate all reported incidents and accidents to determine the contributing and root causes and we will take immediate corrective action to eliminate those causes.

In the event of a serious harm incident we will take all necessary steps to prevent further injury and we will secure the site to ensure it is not disturbed. We will immediately notify MoBIE by ringing the number posted on the Emergency Plan.

Any MoBIE Notices placed on work activities on any site under our control will be complied with.
