Ensuring the safety of our employees, sub-contractors, clients, and members of the public is of paramount importance. Therefore, all employees and sub-contractors who work with us must demonstrate safe behaviours every day.
We take responsibility for safety through proper planning and by taking the time to carry out necessary assessments. We stop operations, immediately react to unsafe practice and operate within the limits and capacity of our work equipment and plant. We continuously seek to improve on best practice and address lessons learned.
