Our Behaviour

At the heart of safety management is the need to ensure that our people remain safe throughout all aspects of their contact with our organisation and our client’s workplaces. From staff through to people on the ground our behaviours are beyond merely compliance.

It is our behaviour that assists our clients to establish workplaces where injury and incidents are prevented, and their Health, Safety and Environmental targets and objectives are achieved. Our safety system MaxSafe is so entrenched in our behaviour, day-to-day operations and processes that it has the capacity to automatically stop activity if a significant safety risk is identified. Ultimately our behaviour influences who we place, with what client, in what role.

Our Activity

Our award winning safety system, Max Safe has ensured thousands of people working in our nation’s highest risk industries return home safe to their loved ones every day. Max Safe drives the following activities:

Safety being a core part of the recruitment process. All FTMs undergo a strict medical and fitness for work assessment and cannot start work without an OSH Specialist approving the placement and allowing the recruitment process to proceed.

Qualifications and licences being scrutinised. All paperwork is viewed, verified and recorded in the employees’ file along with any requirements for updates. The system is intuitive and user friendly, one click to view qualifications and licences.

Injuries being proactively managed. An entrenched notification system ensures an injured worker is properly treated, a national team of injury management experts guide the business and in consultation with our clients expedited return to work has proven very successful.
