Work Health and Safety

Zadro Constructions has implemented a third party certified Work Health & Safety Management System which meets the requirements of the NSW Government Guidelines and conforms with Australian Standard AS:4801:2001. As Principal Contractor, Zadro Constructions are completely aware and understand our obligations to satisfy the requirements of the Occupational Health and Safety Regulations and Codes of Practice.

The various State Health and Safety Acts have introduced statutory duties of care for employers, employees and others. Notwithstanding this, Zadro Constructions regards excellence in safety management to be a primary business objective and to this end has developed a formal Work Health & Safety Policy and System framed with the objective of achieving a high level of pro-active management throughout the company.

Management at Project Level

OHS&R Management at the project level is detailed in project-specific Safety Plans. The Site Safety Plan provides the necessary framework, which ensures all personnel are working to clearly defined and measurable objectives consistent with the company’s legal obligations and OHS&R Policy.

Key areas covered by the plan would include but are not necessarily limited to:

  • Roles and responsibility
  • Legislative requirements
  • Hazard identification and risk assessment
  • Safe work procedures and instructions
  • Safety induction
  • Site safety rules
  • Safety inspection and testing
  • Internal and external auditing and reviews

Implementation of the project Safety Plan is assured through a combination of formal internal audit and management review at defined intervals.

A high level of OH&S performance requires commitment at all levels. In recognition of the important role that all participants play in maintaining a healthy and safe work environment, it is Zadro Constructions policy to encourage the establishment of workplace based (project) OH&S Committees made up of representatives from both management and subcontractors.
