Certified Integrated Management System AS/NZS 4801:2001
The Work Health and Safety Management system is a vital part of the tree industry and we are committed to undertaking best practice at all times.
Plateau Trees achieved the full level of premium discount available through the WorkCover Premium Discount Scheme (PDS). And following completion of the PDS, we looked for the next step in improving our work health and safety management system.
In recognition of its importance, we applied for and achieved formal accreditation of our Safety Management system with Best Practice Certification to Standard AS4801.
We continue to develop and measure our own work health and safety performance. Our rate of claims and lost time due to injuries compares favourably with the industry standard, and our management of the risks associated with our work continues to improve.
Communication and training of our staff is constant and ongoing. We hold regular team meetings, which cover WHS issues. Our weekly on-site tool box meetings also incorporate safety topics.
We have developed an industry-leading safety culture, which we believe works to ensure our staff and customers are protected from the risks and hazards of our operations.
