Norwest Crane Hire is committed to minimising impact on the natural environment and social surroundings for the benefit of current and future generations.
Our Environmental Management System has been designed to minimise impacts to the environment as a result of our services. As our business continues to grow, we understand our ongoing success involves policies, processes and systems that protect not only our business and our people – but also our environment.
We take great pride in our responsibility to the environment and are always looking at strategies for improvement. Continual development and improvement to our environmental management system and processes will ensure we continue to adhere to our ethical and legal requirements and ensure our systems are aligned with Australian Environmental Standards.
Norwest Crane Hire has a strong commitment to providing a safe workplace for our people. We have established processes and systems that aim to monitor and regularly measure key aspects of our operations and activities related to Work Health & Safety “WHS” management. This includes the recording of information to track performance, relevant controls and conformance with KPI’s, objectives and targets.
The successful implementation and maintenance of our safety management system requires an effective planning process which identifies potential hazards, prioritises those hazards through risk‐based approach, and identifies appropriate control measures to allow those hazards to be controlled.
Our aim is to maintain zero harm to our people, and we will continue to ensure our Work Health & Safety processes are implemented and adhered too in order to achieve our goals.
WHS Management Plan
Our established WHS Management Plan provides clear direction in the key aspects of WHS compliance and is centered around the Plan, Do, Check, Act methodology for continuous improvement.
The management system comprises of policies, standards and procedures, which give effect to the intentions, directions and mandatory requirements arising from its business needs and legislative and other guidelines. These documents play an integral role in providing guidance and direction in critical areas, to allow the business to develop strategies and safe systems of work in order to meet compliance in these areas.
The plan and supporting assessment have been developed to align with key principles outlined in the 2020 Work Health & Safety Act. All documents are “live” and under constant review, subsequently allowing for the success of the system to be monitored and corrected with incremental improvements over time.
Our personnel receive training and development through designated training programs, recognition of prior learning or verification of competency (which includes both theory and practical assessment).
