Safety, Health and Environment Policy

At MACA we are committed to providing a safe and healthy workplace for the prevention of work-related injury and/or ill health to our employees, contractors and visitors, and to plan our work responsibly in order to minimise impact to the environment. Our objective is to provide a “Zero Harm” workplace, through active leadership at all levels of the business, with informed decision-making based around our core values of People First, Exceeding Expectations, Continuous Improvement and the Community. With this commitment realised, MACA will achieve its vision to be number 1 in what we do

To achieve this, MACA will:

  • Build a strong, supportive company safety culture based on visible leadership, with a commitment to consultation and engagement with all employees, contractors and worker’s representatives.
  • Expect total commitment by leadership personnel, employees and contractors to our objective of "Zero Harm", appropriate to the purpose, the size and the context of the organisation.
  • Identify Catastrophic Risk and other workplace hazards. Verify Critical Controls are in place and functional prior to commencing an activity. Eliminate hazards where possible, and reduce the potential catastrophic risk to a level as low as reasonably practicable.
  • Endorse relevant legislation, standards and best practice that impact on the operation and work environment, including duty of care required by employers and employees.
  • Consider the lifecycle aspect to environmental decision-making to reduce MACA's environmental footprint. Be receptive to innovative ideas that will result in reducing emission discharges, wastes, energy usage and resource consumption.
  • Identify items or areas of cultural heritage which may be impacted by our work activities, create an awareness of the significance, establish systems to protect and maintain its value.
  • Implement and monitor safe work practices and continually review related procedures to ensure employees and contractors receive the approved and current information for safe and effective execution of tasks.
  • Establish measurable objectives and targets to evaluate whether MACA is achieving the safety, health and environmental expectations, requirements and obligations of stakeholders.
  • Actively support and recognise opportunities for continuous improvement relating to safety, health and the environment.
