Health & Safety
We are committed to achieving excellence in the management of health and safety and recognise the importance of promoting employee wellness and the provision of a safe working environment. The prevention of accidents is of vital importance and we do not regard any task to be so important that it may be done in an unsafe manner.
We work hard at keeping everyone safe and have invested significant time and resources in training courses that help to do this. Courses have included:
- Advanced driving and low-speed manoeuvring driving
- Health and Safety Representative and Manager training
- Height safety
- Manual handling
- Confined space
Our hazard identification and control processes are constantly being reviewed and improved.
The well-being of our staff is our highest priority and we endeavour to help everyone live a healthy life by being flexible where we can and including families in regular social activities. We have an annual company walking challenge that includes health checks for all staff, health-related seminars and incentives to exercise.
We are accredited to the ACC Workplace Safety Management Process Programme at Tertiary level.
TransWorks' Environmental Management System has been certified by International Certifications and was found to comply with the requirements of ECO Warranty: 2010.
We successfully passed our first audit in March 2012 and have passed every year since.
Eco Warranty:2010 is an Environmental Management Standard that organisations around the world are choosing to demonstrate their commitment to the environment.
Our Environmental Management System provides the framework, policies and practices for effective environmental management through the identification of environmental hazards and corresponding controls.
We are continually improving our company's environmental performance by setting environmental objectives and targets.
