health and safety comes first
Keeping our staff safe and happy is our first priority at Trade Assist. We take a proactive approach, working closely with a range of partners to ensure our people are well-trained and up-to-date with any qualifications needed and go home safely.
safety is a culture
By ensuring everyone has a sense of personal responsibility and feels comfortable to openly discuss safety and report observations and concerns, ensures that preventative action can be taken to ensure accidents are avoided.
a proactive approach
To make sure that our Trade Assist staff are safe, Health & Safety and injury prevention are a major part of our recruitment process. There are a number of preventative measures which Trade Assist takes to ensure the highest safety standards are met, including:
Independent audit of our systems and processes
Mandatory toolbox talks
Use of Assura Software, a workflow platform that ensures every risk or incident is addressed and reported
Supply of appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
Testing and ragging of all electrical equipment
Ongoing and onsite safety training
Pre-employment and random drug and alcohol testing
Quarterly Safety Awards for staff who show commitment to safety
We work closely with multiple training organisations to ensure our staff are appropriately trained and certified for the work they are going to complete
Personnel competency register detailing competencies, training, and when refreshers and renewals are needed.
We work closely with our clients to ensure Trade Assist’s health and safety processes are well-aligned to ensure an integrated approach to creating a safe environment. A prime example of this is the operation of a field-based health and safety management system, where all staff can contribute to the site’s safety, by reporting risks, unsafe practices and incidents, from their mobile phones in real-time.
