Health & Safety and Environmental

Safety First. End of story.

Seipp Construction is committed to providing safe working environments. Our focus is zero harm, not only for our own people but for everyone involved in our projects.
To achieve this we support proactive employee education, participation and consultation, hazard management using the ‘hierarchy of control’ method, accident and incident management, emergency management and subcontractor management.
What’s more, we ‘walk the talk’. Seipp Construction holds ACC Tertiary Level certification and has done since ‘day one’. Gaining Tertiary accreditation at first attempt is virtually unheard of and is a reflection of our core commitment to keeping staff and stakeholders safe at all times.
Our commitment to rigorous health and safety is project specific. On each contract, safety is managed using a comprehensive Health and Safety Management Plan (HSMP) developed and implemented in accordance with the requirements of the Seipp Construction H&S Manual. Risk mitigation is an integral part of this - detailed hazard identification and development of control measures is undertaken as part of the compilation of each work plan. Site teams are involved in this process to ensure they’re fully on board and engaged - each team member signs the document in acknowledgement of their understanding.
As a project progresses, the focus on site safety is maintained through pre-start assessments every morning, a weekly safety checklist (internal audit) and weekly toolbox meetings.
We not only strive for health and safety excellence, we focus on continuously improving our best practice. To support company-wide prioritisation of safety, we have a comprehensive Health and Safety policy in place. We also capture and continually update best practice safety in our Work Procedures Manual. This stipulates safe work practices for activities including drainage, structures, sheet piling and dewatering. All procedures are compliant with current legislation and have contributed to our achievement of ISO:9001 accreditation.
