Compas Transport Occupational Health & Safety

Effectively managing health and safety in the workplace relies on assurance, discussion, and support. Everyone in the workplace needs to recognise the need for health and safety, what their role is in making the workplace safer, and how they can fulfill their responsibilities under the Occupational Health and Safety Act 2000.

Compas Transport is dedicated to continuously progress the workplace in terms of health and safety of employees.

The Occupational Health and Safety Act provide a structure for discussion between management and employees on health and safety. Compas Transport believes that effective discussion can make a real difference to workplace health and safety. Change for the better is not complicated to achieve when employers and employees work together and help to find solutions to problems.

Discussion about health and safety, and the expansion of policies and procedures, which are backed up by information and regular training, will have a real effect on reducing and preventing injuries at work.

The development and implementation of the Compas Transport Occupational Health and Safety statements, policies and procedures, is consistent with the provisions of the Occupational Health and Safety Act and the Compas Transport Occupational Health and Safety Policy, and associated procedure and training documentation.

Quality management systems provide the opportunity to include health and safety in business management. This means there is a greater importance on workplaces being able to measure their own performance and use those measurements to drive continuous improvement.

Compas Transport is committed to the management of Occupational Health and Safety in the workplace through the use of these principles.
