Safety Is Our First Consideration

Safety is our first consideration and a value that is fundamental to our culture.


G&S is committed to providing their clients with a team of personnel who can deliver industry-leading safety performance, and achieve desired key performance indicators requested by clients.

Our success is achieved through the determination and passion of our people and through the provision of:

  • Industry-leading responsive teams, with targeted skills to meet the needs of clients
  • A culture of continuous improvement
  • Client focused and empowered people; and
  • Growth, development and ongoing training

The G&S Safety Charter emphasises our commitment to a “Zero Exposure” environment to deliver our goal of “Zero Harm”. In order to achieve our goal, we will continue to invest in training and systems that support such a philosophy and transfer that knowledge into every G&S project through a combination of onsite processes and ongoing training programs.

It is important for all of our valued subcontractors and partners to adopt our commitment to safety, and for our team to advocate and action the motto, "if it’s not safe, stop- then make it safe".

G&S is committed to the highest possible standards of occupational health, safety and environmental management throughout its operations.

Our goal is to create a Zero Exposure environment which delivers Zero Harm. This means we need our people to focus on their exposure to risks by controlling and/or eliminating hazards wherever possible.

Our Safety Culture

Our culture embodies the shared belief across all business units that every incident, and therefore injury, is preventable. G&S has created an informed environment whereby personnel have:

  • Current knowledge about all factors that determine the safety of any project
  • A reporting culture where people are encouraged and prepared to report hazards, errors and near misses
  • A just culture where there is a workplace of trust in which people are encouraged, even rewarded, for providing essential safety related information. Further they are clear about where the line must be drawn between acceptable and unacceptable behavior
  • A learning culture where personnel willingly investigate and draw the right conclusions from safety information and voluntarily implement improvements
  • A flexible culture where employees are able to reconfigure the work process in the face of high risk operations to always ensure that safety is our first consideration
