At Certis Security Australia, we believe safety is everyone’s responsibility, and our refreshed WHS Strategy reinforces our commitment to a strong safety culture.
Safety is one of our 7 core values. We highly regard our Work Health & Safety Management System (WHSMS) as an integral part of our service provision to our Australian customers. Our Health & Safety Environment (HSE) team is headed by the National Manager HSE who leads a team of HSE Managers across the country.
Workplace safety practices are always evolving, so we continually revise our safety strategy to ensure we are fostering a culture of continuous improvement. We understand that our clients require a high focus on injury and incident prevention through a proactive and methodical approach. Our managers, supervisors and operational staff have a suite of management tools to assist them in delivering a quality and safe service.
Our three-year workplace safety strategy, A Fresh Pair of Eyes, further enhances and embeds safety within our business. A key element of the strategy has been a full review of our safety management system.
Certis Security Australia is now nationally certified for the Occupational Health and Safety Management System ISO 45001. This certification validates our commitment to the reduction of work-related injuries and best practice.
Our WHS Management System has effectively demonstrated our commitment to these prescribed safety thresholds through relevant and frequently updated safety policies and procedures. This achievement is continuously reviewed with Certis Security Australia undertaking frequent surveillance and auditing by internal and external auditors.
Certis Security Australia Safe Work Method and Environment Statements (SWMES), Hazard Registers, Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) and Site Standing Orders (SSO) are continually reviewed and updated to reflect site specific requirements and improvements. Certis Security Australia applies best practice safety initiatives and heavily invests in awareness training and guidelines for all levels of the business to ensure our policies and procedures are effectively implemented nationally, on every site to avoid any potential workplace hazard or workplace injury.
