Workplace Health and Safety
HVE Hydro Vac Excavations is committed to providing a safe and healthy working environment for our employees and visitors to the workplace.
We will achieve our WH&S Objectives by adopting and promoting the provisions of the Workplace Health and Safety Act 1995 and its associated Regulation, Codes and Standards, together with placing significant importance on the areas of hazard/risk management and injury prevention strategies.
Our primary WH&S objective is to eliminate or reduce risk by developing proactive strategies and adopting a risk management approach to WH&S in order to provide an injury/illness free workplace. We understand that creating and maintaining a safe and healthy working environment is a major part of our overall responsibility and that all managers are accountable for the health and safety of employees and visitors in their respective work areas.
In conjunction with this policy, individual Safe Work Procedures, guidelines and standards are prepared and issued in consultation with relevant employees. We expect all employees and visitors to our workplaces to follow safe work practices as prescribed under the legislation and in our Policies and Safe Work Procedures, and that they make every effort to reduce the risk of injury to themselves and others. We provide adequate resources to manage and maintain health and safety together with regular training on workplace health and safety.
Workplace Health and Safety is important and we all have an obligation to ensure that we have a safe and healthy working environment and we encourage all employees at any level of management to actively participate so that we may achieve this goal.
