Health & Safety – Embracing our duty of care for the safety and wellbeing of our people
As a family orientated business, the safety, health and wellbeing of our people is extremely important to us. We are committed to keeping people safe, healthy, motivated and engaged at work. We truly believe that a safe and healthy workplace has a positive impact on the personal wellbeing of our people, their safety and their productivity.
Our focus is on:
- Preventing ill health and disease by making our workplace and work activities healthier. People should not be exposed to any substances or tasks during their working day that could affect their health. Our processes focus on removing such risks and have recently implemented occupational health monitoring for our people.
- Where people are absent from work, we will help them return as quickly as possible and in a safe manner and able to remain in work by managing any individual health issues.
Our future success in growing Peryer Construction relies on delivering quality projects, on time, on budget and above all, safely. Safety and wellbeing of our people is and always will be, our number one priority, it can never be taken for granted. Everyone, regardless of job role, has an important part to play and we all have a responsibility to ensure the safety and welfare of our colleagues, site workers, contractors and the communities in which we work.
By working together, looking out for one another and having the confidence to challenge behaviours, speaking out when we feel something doesn’t look or feel safe, we will achieve zero harm on all our sites. It remains our first, and most enduring, priority to ensure each and every member of our team returns home to their families in the same condition which they arrived to work at the start of the day.
Peryer Construction take their position within the construction industry and occupational Health and Safety seriously. To honour this commitment we have chosen to meet all Health and Safety legislation including the Health & Safety at Work Act 2015 and ASNZ 4801/Occupational Health and Safety Management and are working towards up skilling all our people. This is evidenced by
