The Dowdens Group aims to be recognised as an industry leader in workplace health and safety and our people take justifiable pride in the safety programs we deliver as an organisation. We are committed to providing a safe and healthy work environment for all employees, contractors, customers and suppliers. This commitment to safety is a core element of the Dowdens Group corporate culture.
Occupational Health and Safety is of paramount importance to the continued wellbeing of all personnel attending a Dowdens Group workplace or site. There is a shared belief across all levels of our business units, that every incident, and therefore every injury, is preventable.
Our OHS policy is based on the following principles:
Every Dowdens Group employee has a right to stop working if they feel it is unsafe to continue. The Dowdens Group safety philosophy is embedded in every Dowdens Group project and work site through a combination of technical field procedures and ongoing training programs.
Our approach to implementing new or improved standards, processes and procedures helps us achieve safer and more environmentally friendly outcomes. Our Health, Safety and Environmental goals and policies are vital and integral elements of our business. Our safety focused management systems and processes influence everything we do.
The Dowdens Group is committed to a programme of continuous safety improvement. We are actively reinvigorating our management systems and engaging our personnel, contractors and suppliers so that their expectations are aligned with ours.
Our dedication to safety helps keep our employees and those around them safe, while benefiting our clients. Fewer injuries means operating costs are reduced and productivity remains high.
Dowdens Group is committed to ensuring our workers go home safely at the end of each working day. WORK SAFE - HOME SAFE
