  • I will use appropriate working at heights restraint equipment where required;
  • I will never work in the line of fire of a suspended load;
  • I will ensure my vehicle is safe for driving, I will drive responsibly and to conditions and I will ensure that a journey management plan is in place and followed when appropriate;
  • I will be fit for work while operating company equipment or vehicles;

  • I will wear/use all appropriate and supplied PPE for the task I am carrying out; and

Geared to lead the pursuit of zero harm

As we grow, remote management becomes more challenging. We're educating and equipping our leadership teams with tools for better business performance. Success stems from improved leadership, resulting in better-performing and more satisfied staff. Team leaders, better equipped to handle challenges, experience less stress, which helps build a flexible, scalable organization adept at change.

In any great organisation, people are the most valuable asset. Our Safety Leadership training is a crucial ‘enabler’ for unleashing the best in our teams. We've established a training pathway for our management and coordination teams, and in-field leaders to continually enhance workplace safety. Leadership skills are essential to encourage teams to excel and address safety risks proactively, effectively mitigating accidents or incidents.

It's your career.
