Health and Safety
We are committed to providing a safe and healthy workplace to ensure the wellbeing of our employees, our clients, and members of the public.
Our goal is to eliminate all injuries, accidents, and incidents.
To achieve this goal we:
- make safety a priority on all of our sites
- require active participation by everyone in the business to adequately plan the work we are always carrying out and to act safely
- require the Site Safe and/or Constructsafe Passports as a minimum training standard for all our employees and subcontractors and we encourage all staff to undergo further safety training
- ensure that our regular planned inspections include monitoring of current Passports in workplaces we control.
All new staff are supervised and trained until they reach our required Health and Safety standards, with regular competency assessments and are provided with all necessary Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). This PPE is always required to be worn on all our worksites.
ICB has its own ConstructSafe test centre. The ConstructSafe Scheme is the first of its kind in New Zealand and is one way to independently assess the competency of any person, anywhere. It is based on international best-practice frameworks and sets a benchmark for health and safety competency. We offer this service to our clients so that all people working on site are competent and safe.
ConstructSafe provides a consistent and transparent way to independently check the competency of any worker, trade specialist, supervisor or manager on site regardless of their employer.
On all projects we plan ahead to identify, risk assess and control all hazards on-site. We hold regular safety meetings to ensure our employees have the right plant and skills needed to work safely and control these hazards. We also keep in close communication with all subcontractors working on-site under the ICB umbrella to ensure they comply with all health and safety requirements. We monitor our sites to ensure our planned controls are effective and our employees and subcontractors are supervised to ensure they are acting safely. All these measures prove highly effective.
