Safety

At Vibropile, our Occupational Health, Safety and Rehabilitation Policy is based on a belief that the well-being of people employed at work, or people affected by our work, is a major priority and must be considered during all work performed by, or on behalf of our company. We fully recognise our responsibilities under the OH&S Act 2004 (Vic), OH&S Act 2000 (NSW), OHS & Welfare Act 1986 (SA), OS&H Act 1984 (WA), Workplace H&S Act 1995 (WA), Workplace H&S Act 1995 (Tas) and our obligation to comply with this legislation.

Vibropile is committed to obtaining and maintaining certification to AS4801 and pursuing a process of continual improvement in OH&S performance.

People are our most important asset and their health and safety is our greatest responsibility. The public shall be given equal priority to that of our employees.

The objectives of our Safety Policy are:

  • To achieve an accident free workplace.
  • To make health & safety an integral part of every managerial and supervisory position.
