We are committed to a safe work environment for everyone involved. Our policies have been designed and crafted specifically for our work and we constantly look for areas to improve upon.

We provide all of our employees with well-maintained equipment, personal protective equipment and up-to-date training to ensure their safety and the safety of everyone around them. Plus, we are fully qualified and follow the guidelines of International and Australian Safety Standards including the Work Health and Safety Act of 2011 (WH&S).

Work Health & Safety Act of 2011

In 2011, Australia created a set of ‘model laws’ designed to protect the health and safety of employees from exposure to unnecessary hazards or risks while working. The framework does this by:
  • Requiring businesses or duty-holders to eliminate or reduce risk.
  • Providing adequate representation, consultation & cooperation.
  • Providing adequate training & equipment.
  • Looking for areas that need improvement & making the necessary adjustments.
  • Promoting union suggestions for improvements in the WH&S.

Our Duty

Xport Plumbing understands its moral and legal obligations under the WH&S and we do our best to provide a safe work environment every day. This commitment means that we will:
  • Provide a safe work environment for everyone associated with our company.
  • Stay up-to-date on all the changes to the WH&S and other industry standards.
  • Provide training to our employees to ensure safe work habits.
  • Provide additional support & assistance for our workers when needed.
  • Maintain equipment & tools to protect against unnecessary risks.
  • Look into any reported incidents in a timely manner as well as maintain records of the incident(s) & make changes on a corporate level as needed.
We hold ourselves to the highest of standards, going above the WH&S recommendations to provide a safe work environment for everyone involved. We are an ISO 9001:2015 accredited business for quality operations and our work reflects this.
