OCCUPATIONAL
HEALTH, SAFETY & REHABILITATION POLICY

FleetServe Pty Limited is committed to providing and maintaining a safe and healthy work environment for its employees, contractors and visitors to the company's premises and work sites.

The company demonstrates this commitment by providing the necessary resources to meet its responsibilities and comply with the Occupational Health and Safety Act 2000, the Occupational Health and Safety Regulation 2001 and this policy.

In conjunction with this policy, a series of rules, programs and procedures will continue to be developed and issued to address accident prevention, hazard control and removal, protection from injury and health preservation and promotion. Managers and Supervisors will maintain copies of the above relevant to their areas of responsibilities.

An Occupational Health & Safety Committee has been established to promote safety and health in the workplace. The Occupational Health & Safety Committee will assist with the development and monitoring of safe work practices and systems and discuss issues that may affect the health, safety and welfare of all employees, contractors and visitors. FleetServe will respond to Occupational Health & Safety Committee recommendations within a timeframe agreed by the Committee.

Health and safety at work is both an individual and shared responsibility of all employees. To ensure the success of this policy, the following areas of responsibility are essential:

Line Management is required to actively pursue the goals as stated above through the following approaches:

  • Develop and administer a comprehensive health and safety program
  • Conduct regular meetings with senior staff, supervisors and employee representatives to discuss health and safety issues and improvements
  • Take effective action to provide and maintain healthy and safe working conditions for all employees within the Company

Supervisors and Foreman will be held accountable for the working conditions under their control and to the degree of information given on health and safety matters to employees over whom they are responsible. They are to provide initiative and follow up action to maintain this policy within their own sections.

OH&S Committee Members are responsible for bringing employees and management together in a non-adversarial, co-operative effort to promote safety and health in the workplace. They are responsible for making better decisions for the company in an advisory role by providing recommendations regarding Occupational Health & Safety issues in the workplace.

All Employees are responsible for their own safety and that of their co-workers. The success of a Health and Safety program ultimately rests on the commitment and willingness of everyone to co-operate and work collectively with a "Team Spirit".

The most likely benefits from improved safety in the workplace are the elimination of, or a reduction in the incidence of accidents, near misses, less injury from disease, improved morale, better teamwork and greater productivity.

Direct feedback from all employees to either their Manager or an OH&S Committee member regarding appropriate improvements in areas such as lighting, ventilation, personal protective equipment and tools as well as training in the use of equipment, plant and machinery and dangerous goods will provide a safer environment for all employees.
