What is Safety to me?
June 21, 2017 by Sarah in Safety
At Sarah, we put people first. We’re in the business of building excellent lasting relationships, so the safety of all people on site is paramount. Before we even begin a project, our risk management process includes a start-up meeting with the project team to identify and record construction risks and any client-identified risks. We collaborate to ensure that nothing is missed; we implement a best practice approach to Work Health and Safety (WHS) Management.
To demonstrate the Sarah culture of safety first, we asked one of our Project Managers, Peter Golotta to share what safety means to him:
What is Safety to me…?
Safety is a non-negotiable;
Safety is caring for one another;
Safety is calling it out if you feel something is not right;
Safety is about thinking ahead and pre-empting controls;
Safety is working together to produce a health conscious approach to our daily activities;
Safety is sharing our experiences to learn and grow as industry professionals;
Safety is a psychological awareness and focus on mental health;
Safety is going home to your loved ones in the same manner you arrived at work…but…with a more positive attitude towards our actions and the welfare of people, colleagues, neighbour and mates.
Further evidence of Sarah’s commitment to and high performance in WHS, is its accreditation in the OFSC scheme, which is only granted to contractors that demonstrate a robust WHSMS reinforced through sound implementation of the Health and Safety Management Plan on all projects. We wear this badge proudly because it shows that, at Sarah, we look after our teams on site. Our staff, contractors and customers know, when doing business with us, they’re in safe hands.
