SPS recognises that the health, safety and welfare of employees are of primary importance and ranks it equally with all other financial and operational considerations (internal & external).
We aim to, through our effective risk management strategies, minimise those things that may negatively impact upon all our stakeholders’ interests. As part of this we have developed comprehensive risk management plans that govern all aspects of our organisation. The aim of the SPS risk management platform is to prevent any injury/illness or damage to internal or external parties.
SPS has established an Occupational, Health, Safety & Environmental (OHS&E) committee comprising of non management voluntary staff, and is held four times a year.
The OHS&E Committee brings employee and management together in a neutral venue to discuss & resolve any issues and promote OHS&E throughout the Company. It is the Committee’s role to take a proactive approach in assisting SPS to develop and implement the best possible OH&S policies, plans and procedures for eliminating or minimisingthe occupational risks that are inherent in the business.
To this end SPS has adopted AS/NZS 4801 Occupational Health & Safety Management System – as a basis for our Safety Management System (SMS)
