Coastal Engineering & Belting (CEB) takes its occupational health and safety (OH&S) obligations seriously. It is a cornerstone of the business and we are committed to fulfilling these obligations in a positive, practical and effective manner. Our aim is to achieve " best practice " in occupational health and safety management. CEB will use our manual to integrate OH&S into the day-to-day management of our organization.
Our Commitment Under the Workplace Health and Safety Act (1995) CEB, as an employer, has a legislative requirement to take all reasonably practicable steps to protect the health and safety at work of our staff. In this context CEB recognizes that the health and safety of its staff greatly contributes to its overall objectives and achieving quality results. Our commitment is to ensure we work in a health and safe environment, to minimize the cost to individuals and work areas of preventable accidents and injuries and to improve staff morale.
Our OH&S Policy will be implemented through our OH&S Agreement. The Agreement sets out the working arrangements and procedures which management and staff will adopt to implement the OH&S Policy. Both the Policy and the Agreement aim to be " best practice " in terms of fulfilling legislative requirements and in achieving positive outcomes for both CEB and the individuals who work for the organization.
Consultation The Policy and Agreement is proposed as a start point to be further developed and enhanced in consultation with staff and Health and Safety Representatives.
We will ensure all staff are aware of the content and intent of this Policy and Agreement and will demonstrate out own commitment to providing a healthy and safe workplace by implementing the Workplace OH&S Strategy.
We envisage the OH&S Manual to be a living document with regular reviews and updates as determined by CEB's management and employees through the OH&S Committee.
CEB has not had any incidents or accidents investigated by Workplace Standards Tasmania.
