We’re all about safety!

Hindmarsh Plumbing’s culture is underpinned by a strong safety focus that is systematically and behaviourally lived and breathed by all team members every single day.

We are committed to the health, safety and welfare of employees, apprentices, contractors, customers and the public who may be affected by our work.

In order to maintain our commitment we:

  • Continuously improve our Safety Management System across the business.
  • Promote active participation through consultation and communication.
  • Actively pursue the identification of all hazards with a view to elimination or management to the lowest practical risk level.
  • Ensure that all activities we undertake as a minimum comply with the relevant legislation of the States and Territories.
  • Identify, communicate and monitor health and safety objectives, targets and performance measures at all levels within the business.
  • Foster a culture where employees and contractors are aware of the hazards around them, and work in a manner to reduce risk.
  • Ensure all staff members are appropriately trained.

We know that all incidents and injuries are preventable, and support this principle by ensuring a strong safety culture, management commitment and leadership and effective risk control.
