Work, health and safety management

Working safely is the way we do things, with no exceptions.

At Water Engineering Technologies, safety is a lived value that governs our approach, not just a set of rules or documents.

Our safety framework focuses on the key pillars of people, knowledge, safe delivery and communication.

All our people are empowered and encouraged to explore the safest and most effective way to deliver our services. Our experienced tradespeople, working under our comprehensive safety management system and supported by active safety leadership, continue to find innovative ways to deliver their work safely.

From safety in design, to supervision, execution and delivery, working safely is integrated into our work methods from the beginning to end of a project and our people pride themselves on leading by example.

We are regularly audited by the Office of The Public Sector on behalf of South Australian Government. These audits are based on the WHS Legislation and the current standard for safety management systems. Our Safety Management System has passed the Audit and Verification Scheme (AVS) for WHS and Injury Management with a ‘strong’ rating. This is the highest rating under the AVS.

The SA Water People, Safety and Capability Policy outlines our approach and our framework which includes core hazard management standards, supporting procedures and system procedures.
