Our policy is to ensure all of our activities are performed in a manner that protects the health and safety of our employees, sub-contractors, the general public, and all those in the environment we work within.

We are committed to complying with all regulatory and industry requirements, as well as our own quality and safety management requirements, always.

Since opening in 1989, we have experienced zero lost time injuries (LTIs). We are proud of this fact, and believe a healthy, safe and environmentally friendly workplace is fundamental to the success of our business operations.

At OFI, safety is a team effort, where each individual has a part to play, and each of us benefit as a result. This is only achievable when management and employees work together, to develop safe systems and maintain high levels of awareness.

We support the vision of an injury, illness and disease-free workplace by making Occupational Health and Safety a priority.

This is achieved by:

  • Maintaining an effective Safety Management System in accordance with AS4801:2001 and OHSAS 18001:2007.
  • Establishing realistic and measurable objectives and targets to measure Occupational Health and Safety management and performance, which ensures continual improvement aimed at eliminating work-related injury and illness.
  • Developing, implementing and continually improving systems and processes that ensure the health and safety of all employees and subcontractors.
  • Measuring and evaluating our health and safety performance through regular audits, inspections and internal reporting.
  • Implementing management systems that identify, assess and control workplace hazards.
  • Providing the necessary resources to establish and maintain safe systems of work.
  • Providing employees with necessary personal protective clothing and equipment where it is not practical to avoid the presence of hazards.
  • Developing and supporting a strong safety culture that encourages employee and subcontractor consultation and involvement at all levels.
  • Providing appropriate instruction, information, training and supervision to ensure employees and subcontractors perform their tasks safely.
