We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded the Building and Construction OHS Accreditation by the Australian Government.
Our people are the single most important factor in driving the company forward and, as such, we ensure the highest level of health, safety and welfare for our staff. This accreditation is recognised within the building and construction industry as the pinnacle of OHS performance and achieving accreditation is the result of developing a top-class OHS Management System which has withstood the rigours of government audit.
The Australian Government Building and Construction OHS Accreditation Scheme enables the Australian Government to use its influence as a major construction client and provider of capital to improve the WHS performance of the building and construction industry. Through the Scheme, the government aims to foster a new culture where work must be performed safely, as well as on budget and on time.
The Scheme helps to ensure that the benefits of investing in high-quality WHS practices are recognised. It operates such that, subject to certain thresholds, only head contractors who are accredited under the Scheme can enter into contracts for building and construction projects funded directly or indirectly by the Australian Government.
