Health, Safety & Environment
We are committed to achieving zero harm across our business so that each day at Forgacs Marine and Defence is a ‘Safe Day Good Day’.
This safety philosophy drives our behaviours, attitudes and actions within the business to achieve a working environment free from injury or accident.
Our dedicated safety program is designed to empower every person in the organisation to ensure their work practices are focused on achieving zero harm.
The program is supported through our ‘Never Assume’ campaign to further advance the safety culture in our organisation.
We acknowledge the stringent surroundings in which many of our projects are located and we remain committed to minimising our impact on the environment. We are also planning to improve on the environmental management of our Newcastle site to protect the sensitive land and riverfront surroundings.
Throughout the business, our people are trained to recognise how critical it is to protect our environment while being respectful of heritage sites for future generations to enjoy.
We hold certificates of accreditation to OHSAS 18001 Occupational, Health and Safety Management Systems and ISO 14001 Environmental Management Systems.
