Occupational Health & Safety Policy
Great Northern Logistics Pty Ltd understands that Occupational Health & Safety (OH&S) is an integral part of our business operations and confirm that no business priorities of the company will supersede our requirement to provide a safe place of work, free of known health hazards.
We commit to observe and fulfil the legislative and statutory OH&S obligations relevant to our operations, and to utilise our company policies and procedures to further support this commitment.
Our company understands the principle of “Duty of Care” and confirms ongoing commitment, as an employer, to that principle. Similarly, it understands that employees and sub-contractors also have that “Duty of Care” towards each other, towards the Company and most importantly, towards themselves.
Great Northern Logistics Pty Ltd expects all employees, contractors and sub-contractors to be responsible and accountable for their own actions; to report unsafe working conditions and/or actions; and to behave in a manner that reflects the safe work practices and standards that this Company upholds.
We encourage our employees and other workers to be active in identifying potential hazards and communicating changes in the workplace to assist us to minimise exposure to any risks and hazards that may arise.
We commit to safeguard the health and safety of our people, with our management team and employees actively involved in the planning and implementation of OH&S procedures and initiatives.
Our company firmly believes that all accidents and injuries are preventable and that, with the appropriate policies, procedures, training and support in place, our goal of zero lost time injuries is achievable.
As an organisation, we will continually improve our OH&S systems and processes by regularly assessing our business activities, establishing measurable objectives for improvement, remaining abreast of industry best practice and implementing beneficial changes as and when required.
