In October, our branches across the width and breadth of Australia have been taking extra steps to encourage everyone to take responsibility for a healthy and safe workplace.
The theme for 2021 is “think safe. work safe. be safe.”, a timely reminder to keep work health and safety a top priority, and it’s an opportunity to build awareness and encourage discussion about safety at work and share best practices.
Workplace health and safety is a normal part of our day-to-day operations, with weekly meetings and regular safety check-ups, safe practices are embedded into all our processes and procedures.
To support the occasion, we’ve updated all the Stop Program signages in Narangba. The STOP program has been an effective approach for reinforcing safe work practices, creating a positive safety environment, and reducing incidents/injuries.
Whether our team is working on an equipment, driving to and from site, or lifting something heavy, we always take the necessary precautions to ensure we make it home safe. We use the control system HAZOP (CHAZOP) as part of our safety management process, enabling our operational teams to introduce processes that they can manipulate and maintain.
Our crushing, screening, and recycling equipment are fitted with custom safety guards, safety lanyards, emergency stops and fire extinguishers that meet or exceed all Australian Standards.
It’s important to remember that while the National Safe Work Month is a crucial time, the overall health and safety of our employees is top priority all year round. This October and throughout the year, we work together to keep each other healthy and safe at work.
