Groundsearch Australia is committed to providing employees, contractors and visitors with a healthy and safe environment.

Each of us has a personal responsibility for our safety and the safety of others, both on and off the job and, for the prevention of damage to property.

Groundsearch Australia strives to fully integrate health and safety into all aspects of its activities through a process of continuous improvement. 

This will be achieved by:

  • Implementing and maintaining a framework that ensures the systematic management of health and safety throughout all workplaces and compliance with legal and other requirements;
  • Setting measurable objectives and targets aimed at controlling higher risk activities and increasing awareness of health and safety.

The Management of Groundsearch Australia’s principal goal is to improve health and safety and to prevent workplace injuries and illnesses. 

Groundsearch Australia promotes a proactive health and safety management philosophy based on effective communication and consultation, the systematic identification, assessment and control of hazards and the encouragement of innovation.

All accidents are preventable and all indentifiable health risks are manageable.

At work sites we will achieve this standard by;

1. Identification and reduction of risks associated with operations.

2. Compliance with all legislative requirements including control of the physical environment.

3. Promotion of Employee Health and Welfare.

4. Provision of high quality training and instruction.

5. Involvement of all employees in hazard reduction.

6. Control of internal and external fire and security risk areas.

7. Protection of the Public from any potential adverse effects of the operations.
