SAFETY AT QPA
QPA businesses have an impeccable safety record based on a strong safety culture reinforced by our safety policies and non-negotiables, behavioural based leadership program, highly tailored safety procedures and award winning safety innovations.
At QPA, safety is a core value. Our job is to complete every project incident and injury free. Our management team creates a culture in which all employees have the opportunity and responsibility to take ownership for their safety and the safety of their co-workers.
We’ve always held the belief that our most valuable asset – what truly sets us apart – is our employees. There is nothing more important than our employees coming home safely.
Every project, environment and community in which we work is unique and safety must be designed in accordance with the nuances and fit for that particular location. Effective and consistent communication supported by strong visual aids and video demonstrations is critical for safety engagement by local workforces.
Our teams ensure safety is managed through project specific Health & Safety Management Plans, detailing the training, communication and reporting requirements of safety managers and ambassadors. Our Fitness for Work policy ensures workers adopt a holistic approach to safety, maintaining awareness of their physical and mental states at all times.
Throughout our projects from initial inductions and meetings through to project conclusion we constantly consult with workers, subcontractors, vendors and clients to ensure all stakeholders understand and commit to the same health and safety goals and initiatives.
In order to reach the goal of ZERO incidents, our leaders must drive the safety initiatives. Our objective is to develop robust and diverse workforces that are skilled, capable and sustainable for the safe and successful completion of every project.
