Health and Safety

One of the top management priorities across our business is that of improving our safety performance.  We have introduced additional programs to improve our safety performance and are reviewing and monitoring our performance more closely.

Our goal is to embed a zero accident culture.  In 2009 we updated our Environment Health and Safety Standards and Policy and the accompanying management processes and systems.  Technical training is pivotal in embedding these systems.  Senior supervisors and management have attended a course to ensure they understand their accountabilities and responsibilities in this area.

We have found that cultural and behavioural change programs which are supported by training are key to making significant and long lasting changes in attitude to safety at work.

At the FridgeFactory we believe responsible environmental health and safety (EHS) management is an integral party of our achieving our goal to grow the value of our refrigeration manufacturing business.  We aim to ensure that the course of our business activities minimises our impact on our environment; look after the health and safety interest of our employees; and look for ways in which we can improve the local environment in the communities in which we operate.

We believe that this approach will generate and sustain significant environmental, social and financial benefits, thereby contributing to our objective of long term sustainability.

We aim to:

  • To conduct our business in compliance with environmental, health and safety laws and regularly assess our operations compliance against these requirements.
