SafeWork NSW’s innovative Safety Promise program involves businesses going online and making a promise to ensure the health and safety of everyone in the workplace.
“Lanskey Constructions is committed to minimising risks to the health, safety, wellbeing and stress of workers, so that no task or operation puts a person at risk of harm or illness,” said Garth Hugo, Lanskey Constructions National General Manager.
“The Safety Promise reflects the key objective of our project safety systems and processes — to ensure everyone returns home from work safely, every day.”
To encourage more businesses to make a Safety Promise, SafeWork NSW has launched a digital campaign targeting small to medium-sized businesses, their workers and families through sites like Facebook and Google.
SafeWork NSW Specialist Services Executive Director Andrew Gavrielatos said the Safety Promise allowed NSW businesses to demonstrate their commitment to a healthier, safer and more productive workplace.
“The program involves businesses talking to their workers about how to build a better safety culture, making their pledge online and turning those words into actions to ensure the health and safety of everyone in the workplace,” Gavrielatos said.
“More than 100 businesses have already made a Safety Promise, and this campaign encourages more businesses to go online and make the commitment.”
Every Safety Promise is published online at www.safetystartswithyou.nsw.gov.au. Businesses that complete a promise will receive free digital collateral to demonstrate their safety commitment, including a poster, counter card, web tile and social media tiles.
