Health & Safety Management
The success of our operations at Recreational Services depends on full participation and strict adherence to health and safety best practices.
Recreational Services Health & Safety Policy Statement 2013 [PDF]
We follow a health and safety plan that ensures all practicable steps are taken to prevent personal injury and damage to property, and that ensures the protection of our staff and the public from potential and real hazards. We also have an ACC Workplace Safety Management Practices Tertiary Health and Safety Accreditation.
All our staff participates in our Procedural Training System. This extensive training covers health and safety, operational, mechanical, OSH and environmental training for all of our processes, tasks and machinery.
Managers and supervisors at each depot are responsible for maintaining safe and healthy work conditions within the policy framework. We also have HSE Representatives who provides an initial inspection of sites before we commence work, to check for site-specific hazards.
In 2006 we were finalists in several categories of the NZ Workplace Health & Safety Awards, “Participation in the Workplace” which we won and also a finalist for the “Best Productivity Gain through Health & Safety Initiative”.
In 2007 we were also finalists in “Best Initiative to Improve Employee Wellness” category and also “Best Initiative to Promote or Communicate an Improved Safety Culture.
