Safety: In Every Action Every Day

We believe that one of the most crucial steps to achieving our goal of ‘Zero Harm’ is to build a culture where safe behaviour is embedded into every action, every day. This is because the way our leaders and employees behave, think, and view the world, are all critical factors influencing safety.

In building our ‘Zero Harm’ culture, our guiding principle is that every employee and contractor working at Nuplex is responsible for their own safety, the safety of those around them and the environment in which they are working.

Our goal of ‘Zero Harm’ forms the basis of our approach to safety.

This means that at a management level:

  • We place the safety of our employees, contractors, customers, and the public before all else.
  • We hold management accountable for Safety, Health and Environmental (SHE) outcomes.
  • We build SHE protection into our designs and processes.
  • Our SHE systems and standards comply with relevant regulatory and legislative requirements, and where Nuplex standards and legal requirements differ, the more stringent requirement applies.
  • We lead SHE by example.
  • We strive to rehabilitate injured employees as quickly as possible.

And at an employee level:

  • We hold employees responsible for always working safely.
  • We train employees in safe methods of work.
  • We involve employees in identifying risks and ensuring that processes are in place to manage those risks.
  • We encourage employees to stop any activity that is unsafe or would cause harm to the environment or any person.
  • We encourage employees to look out for each other and the environment.
  • We ensure that incentives are aligned with SHE objectives
