Health, Safety & Environment

Everyone Safe Everyday

Here at Southbase we apply smart thinking to project delivery.  We encourage our team to think outside the box to provide innovative build methodologies and construction techniques.  We expect our team to look beyond problems, and come up with effective solutions.

Of course there are aspects of our business where it’s crucial to be inside the box. Our HS&E procedures and policies have been written for the protection of everyone working within the company and all those who work with us.  They are the “Must Do” elements of our job that ensure we comply with our systems and the national standards such as;

  •  ASNZ 4801 / Occupational Health & Safety Management Systems
  • Health & Safety at Work Act 2015
  • Canterbury Rebuild Safety Charter
  • ISO:9001 (2015) Quality management systems

Our HS&E system has been designed to promote a zero harm culture for employees, customers, contractors or visitors at our sites, and to comply with all HS&E Legislation. It consists of 20 elements arranged in a Plan-Do-Check-Review cycle. These processes are continuously updated to ensure that they remain relevant and effective.

We have established and maintain a system that has a clear set of values and objectives for the effective management of health and safety performance.  It is consistent with the requirements of the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 and the specific risks we are exposed to due to the nature of our industry.

We intend to be a leader in occupational health and safety in the construction industry, which is why Southbase operates a management system that conforms with AS/NZS ISO 9001:2015 for the provision of construction management services, concrete, and carpentry labour for commercial construction projects.

This year Southbase achieved ACC Tertiary Accreditation, which confirms that the Southbase health and safety systems and policies align with those of the best companies in New Zealand.  We are building a culture of trust, which comes from knowing every team member is committed to a safe working environment.

In HS&E we stay inside the box so in all other aspects of our work we can keep thinking outside the box and deliver outstanding projects.
