We proactively work with all stakeholders including clients, designers, contractors, supply chain and the workforce to make Zero incidents a reality by: Addressing health and safety issues in a timely manner; Developing a pro-active approach to health and safety; Establishing a culture of acceptance of target Zero as normal working practice; Developing an acceptance within the working environment to act safely at all times in achieving our goal of a target Zero workplace.
