Health & Safety Policy
Tata Steel NZ is committed to the protection of its employees and property from injury or accidental damage. It will seek to conduct its operations in such a way as to avoid harm to its employees, contractors and all others who may be affected directly or indirectly by its activities and to maintain the highest practically achievable standards of safety, occupational health and working environment.
Health, safety and the protection of the environment are the direct responsibility of management and consequently form an integral part of the duties of all managers and supervisors. Health, safety and the protection of the environment have equal status with all other primary business objectives. Safe working practices and due consideration of the environment are vital to the overall efficiency and success of the business.
Tata Steel NZ will ensure that all employees have the required skills, resources and support to meet this commitment and will promote and welcome the active participation of all in its employ in the establishment and observance of measures to improve their health, safety and the working environment. (In this regard “employment“ will be taken to include people employed by contractors, subcontractors and any people working, whether on a full time, part time or casual basis).
A planned series of maintenance tasks, management inspections and internal and external audits are used to verify compliance.
