Safety

There is nothing more important to us than the health, safety and wellbeing of our staff and those that we work with.  We believe that all people should return home safely from their place of work and recognise that the civil construction industry has its own inherent risks.  The directors, management, and staff of Ward are committed to providing a healthy and safe working environment and we acknowledge thaOFSC Accreditation logot this is a shared obligation for all personnel within the organisation. Ward holds accreditation with the Office of Federal Safety Commissioners (“OFSC”).

Ward’s comprehensive Workplace Health & Safety (“WHS”) Policy sets out the responsibilities of all employees and contractors engaged by Ward in the delivery of our services with respect to preventing incidents, accidents and occupational illnesses.

Ward’s greatest asset is its people and we continually strive for the elimination of injuries to our employees and our subcontractor’s employees.  Our Corporate WHS Management System is designed to meet the requirements of ISO 45001:2018 and incorporates documentation, implementation, maintenance and communication through our Corporate Business Management system.  All directors, managers, supervisors, employees and subcontractors are responsible and accountable for the health and safety of our workplaces.  We have undertaken to provide training to all of our staff in both their legal responsibilities and the operation of the management system.
