Health and Safety Policy

Safety Advice Australia (SAA) acknowledges its health and safety responsibilities and obligations to its employees, service provision contractors, clients and visitors for their health, safety and welfare when at or involved in any SAA activity or facility.

The management and employees of SAA are committed to the principle that all personnel are entitled to a safe and healthy workplace.  The achievement of robust health and safety systems and a proactive safety culture that lead to no injuries and illnesses in the workplace is our ultimate objective. We will continuously seek to improve our systems of work in order to achieve this goal, and to ensure this, we undertake to:

  • Comply with all relevant Occupational Health and Safety legislation.
  • Provide a healthy and safe work environment and promote industry best practices.
  • Consult with and involve employees and their representatives on matters affecting their Occupational Health and Safety.
  • Provide and maintain appropriate plant and equipment to protect employees' health and safety.
  • Train all employees, managers and supervisors so that they may perform their tasks safely and competently discharge their responsibilities and obligations.
  • Include health and safety issues when purchasing or designing plant and equipment, or altering work organisation and work practices.
  • Develop and document policies, procedures and responsibilities in relation to specific hazard identification, risk assessment, risk control, rehabilitation, etc.
  • Ensure that all managers and supervisors provide leadership and are held accountable for their health and safety responsibilities and obligations.
  • Regularly monitor and update our Occupational Health and Safety Management System, so as to provide continuous improvement within the workplace.

All managers, supervisors and employees must fully understand and accept their responsibilities for health and safety and must demonstrate a personal commitment to these aims and objectives. We are committed to achieving best practice in Occupational Health and Safety through the co-operative efforts of everybody within SAA.

The display at our work locations of this signed statement of Policy confirms my personal commitment to keeping SAA workplaces safe and healthy for all our employees, customers, visitors and the public.
