My Workplace Health and Safety

Workplace Health and Safety Policy (2014)

As  part  of  our  commitment  to  achieving  the  principles  of  health  and  safety  in  our  workplace,  we recognise  our  moral  and  legal  responsibility  to  provide  a  safe  and  healthy  work  environment  for employees,  contractors,  customers  and  visitors.   This commitment also extends to ensuring that our operations do not place the local community or environment at risk of injury, illness or damage.

Aims and Objectives

My Pathway will adopt procedures as a commitment to:

  • provide and maintain healthy and safe workplaces, safe plant and systems of work
  • provide written procedures and instructions to ensure safe work practices
  • ensure  compliance  with  legislative  requirements,  current  industry  standards  and  other  requirements placed on the business
  • provide  such  information,  instruction,  training  and  supervision  to  employees,  contractors  and customers as is necessary to ensure their continued health and safety
  • provide support and assistance to employees and involve them in consultation on safety issues
  • establish and maintain a Management System modelled on the Australian and international Standards ISO 9001:2008 Standard AS NZS 4801:2001 – and ISO 14001:2004, and
  • improve the companies OHS performance.

Responsibilities

We  recognise  that  the  overall  responsibility  and  commitment  to  provide  a  safe  workplace  rests  with management,  who  will  be  accountable  for  the  implementation  of  this  policy.  The commitment and responsibilities include:

  • management review meetings to establish measurable objectives and targets and to ensure continued improvement aimed at the elimination of work-related injuries and illnesses
  • ensuring  that  all  OHS  policies  and  procedures  are  documented,  reviewed,  implemented,  maintained and communicated to all employees, and
  • providing adequate resources to meet these OHS commitments.
  • Employees also have responsibilities, which include:
  • following all OHS policies and procedures, and
  • recognising hazards which may affect the health and safety of themselves, others, or the environment.

We  are  committed  to  encouraging  consultation  and  co-operation  between  management  and  employees,  and will  formally  involve  elected  employee  health  and  safety  representatives  in  any  workplace  change  or  any matters that may affect the health and safety of employees in any workplace.

 

We acknowledge the Traditional Owners past and present on whose land we walk, work and live.
