Safety is everyone’s responsibility. We want everyone to go home safe and well each day.
Every person has the right to work in a safe environment. We all have a responsibility to contribute to and participate in our safety culture. This means we look out for our own and one another’s safety.
We value the safety of our workforce and want them to reach their full potential. So, we strive to provide safe working conditions and we continue to look for ways to reduce potential physical and psychological harm.
- Actively contribute to improving safety at work.
- Make sure we are fit for work every day, that we are physically and emotionally able, and not influenced by drugs or alcohol.
- Take the time to assess the safety of the task we are doing or starting.
- Speak up if we are unsure about the safety of something or someone.
- Support people who are injured or ill.
- Comply with local safety laws and regulations.
- Do not walk by something that we think could cause harm to people.
- Report potential hazards, unsafe work conditions and practices.
- Becoming complacent – ‘I’ve done this 1,000 times’ or ‘I’ve been here for 15 years’.
- Not listening or engaging in training.
- Making decisions about people’s safety without them –not asking people actually doing the work about their work and ways to improve it.
- Accepting the status quo and thinking an issue is someone else’s problem, or that someone else will report the potential hazard or unsafe work practice.
- Only relying on other people, systems, controls and equipment to manage our personal safety.

Should I step in or say something?
Wherever we are and whatever we are doing, we care for each other.
