The foundation of our safety culture is our commitment to zero harm. Our passion is to ensure that everyone goes home safely at the end of every shift. It is this passion that has enabled us to achieve over 4.6 million hours and over 1,800 days Lost Time Injury Free.
Recognised as leaders in our field, our health and safety system is relevant, practical and innovative. We exceed expectations by integrating safety into our business operations. As risk is inherent in our operations, risk management principles and protocols are embedded into our policies, plans, procedures, decision making, recruitment and selection. Risk is identified, assessed and managed in a systematic and continual manner throughout all levels of the organisation.
Our risk management performance measures are predominantly based on lead health and safety indicators. We not only monitor and review divisional and worksite-specific risk management performance, we also monitor and review individual employee performance. This allows us to reward and motivate outstanding individual effort. Our risk management performance is reported upon on a weekly, monthly, quarterly and annual basis enabling continuous improvement in performance and supporting systems. The success of our efforts is dependent upon our management personnel’s strong and visible safety leadership and our workforce’s commitment and proactive contribution to health and safety.
We invest in our employee’s overall wellbeing through the engagement of professional health consultants that facilitate health programs targeting mental and physical health issues. The information and training provided by our Employee Assistance Program providers has enabled early identification of, and intervention for, mental health issues ranging from depression to substance abuse. This company funded service is provided not only for MRS Services Group employees but also their families.
Our management team is committed to ensuring the highest level of health, safety and welfare for our employees, contractors, clients and the wider community. Our health and safety performance is paramount to our business objectives as safety is our measure of success.
