Back to Introduction

Work Health and Safety

Civil Surveys and Design Pty Ltd has a WHS policy in place, which is based upon the manual entitled Survey Safe as prepared specifically for the Survey Profession by the Association of Consulting Surveyors (ACS), in conjunction with Business SA.

Director John Henley played an active part in the development of this document whilst a member of the Executive Committee of the ACS. A copy may be made available for viewing by prior arrangement.

Work Health & Injury Management Statement

Fundamental to our Work Health policy is the belief that a worker's physical health should not be adversely affected as a result of bad management, dangerous practices or exposure to hazardous materials in the workplace. Similarly, a worker's mental health should not be adversely affected by exposure to discrimination, favouritism or bad practices in personnel management.

Civil Surveys and Design Pty Ltd has an excellent safety record.

We recognise that work performed in the construction industry is inherently hazardous and without stringent safety procedures, accidents can occur.

We have a strong commitment to training and it is our practice to consult Work Place Services on risk management to develop and update our WHS procedures and management systems.

Our project surveyors are required undertake a risk analysis and develop job safety measures prior to commencing any new task. All members of the work team must understand sign a job safety assessment before starting work.

We also recognise the need for the effective management of recovery from injury and rehabilitation of recovering workers and where necessary engage external consultants to provide additional expertise and guidance in this area.
