Health & Safety
Safety is the overriding value of all aspects of our business. We will continually provide a safe and healthy environment for our employees, our customers and the community. We demand safe work behaviour, practices, design and systems.
Pollution prevention is an operating objective. We strive to prevent or reduce the generation of waste at the source. Our impact on the environment is minimised through good engineering practices. Where waste cannot be eliminated, it will be managed in compliance with all applicable requirements.
Environmentally responsible suppliers
We endeavour to use manufacturers and processes which adhere to strict ISO 14001 (2000) methods of manufacturing. We encourage all suppliers to use renewable sources of timber from approved sources. We understand the importance of preserving our environment and strive to reduce waste and pollution in our operations. We work with many manufacturers who provide product that is made from recycled materials, can be 100% recycled at the end of the product life. We also embrace products that are 100% carbon neutral in order to reduce our effect on this planet.
We support and participate in the design, development and establishment of sound public policy and educational initiatives that protect human health and the environment. We will work with government, councils and others in creating responsible laws, regulations and standards to safeguard the community, workplace and environment. We will share with the communities our performance in the environmental, health and safety areas.
Compliance with all applicable environmental, health and safety laws and regulations is required. All of our employees, from the officer level to the front line, are responsible and accountable for compliance and have an obligation to bring issues and concerns forward for resolution. We will actively seek sound business opportunities to go beyond regulatory requirements.

We will pursue an energy resource plan that emphasises environmental protection, energy conservation and efficiency. We will responsibly address conditions that endanger health, safety or the environment.
