Health & Safety
We pride ourselves on promoting a workplace that allows each individual to take responsibility for their safety and the safety of others. We have a no tolerance drug and alcohol policy which is crucial to providing all workers with a safe environment.
At Westforce we also fully believe, no business priority comes before the health and safety of our employees. We strive to continually improve our systems and processes to provide the safest workplace possible.
“Westforce is committed to an incident and injury free culture and will work with our clients and staff to ensure this is achieved”
Our ongoing reviews and improvements of our Safety Systems also provide the foundation for us to continue eliminating/ minimising Heath & Safety risks to our employees, contractors and third parties.
Our leaders are role models in creating and promoting a positive health & safety culture through safe behaviours.
Our employees are our greatest resource and their involvement in identifying health and safety initiatives and improvements are central to continuing to reduce injuries and incidents.
We are very proud to have attained Health and Safety certification for AS/NZS 4801. The scope covers project management and execution of civil engineering works including earthwork, concrete work, pipework, precast concrete work and civil road and bridge construction for the resources and infrastructure sectors in both remote areas and metropolitan Perth. We maintain this standard through our dedicated HSEQ team and workplace activities, whilst continually reviewing and looking to further improve our systems.
At Westforce we recognise that the construction process has the potential to harm the environment through many intrusive activities. We acknowledge that all employees at Westforce have a duty to minimise and mitigate any damage caused by our operations. Therefore, we have introduced a number of sustainable practices to assist with minimising our carbon footprint and impact on the environment.
“Westforce understands that care for the environment is an essential part of conducting its business operations.”
We are very proud to operate an environmental system to the ISO 14001:2004 Environmental Management Standard.
Westforce aims to maintain a high standard of quality management in all workplace activities. We ensure that we provide excellent service to our clients to demonstrate our dedication to high quality services and activities. This is one of the reasons our retention rate of clients remains so high.
“Westforce ensures that we are providing a quality service to all of our clients whilst providing a safe environment for our workforce.”
Westforce is again very proud that we operate through the fully accredited ISO 9001 Quality Management Systems.
“Quality is not an act, it is a habit”
Quality improvement tools and techniques are used both individually and as part of a work team to systematically improve the quality of work and services within Westforce.
