Health and Safety

Mirvac has a priority focus on the health and safety of its employees, contractors and customers,

and in FY17, we launched a refreshed policy and focus to strengthen our safety practices, behaviours and culture across our business, while supporting the wellbeing of our people, places and the communities in which we operate.

Some of the other HSE highlights over the past year included:

  • the introduction of a best-practice approach for the engagement of principal contractors, developed by a working group and piloted prior to roll-out;
  • culture, workplace reporting and online learning module completion statistics all equal to, or improved upon, last year’s results;
  • the inclusion of additional lead indicators, focusing on timely responses and close-out of actions; and
  • an update to Mirvac’s employee benefits to include more health and wellbeing benefits.

The HSE team continues to meet on a monthly basis to discuss and identify Group-wide issues, and hold dedicated workshops to agree upon key risks, opportunities and top priorities for the future. By encouraging greater transparency, looking at the context around every incident, and placing more focus on cross-functional work and collaboration, we hope to improve our safety performance and culture even further.
