We work hard to strengthen the safety culture by:
Our industry-leading Integrated Management System
To measure the potential impact of our activities on the health, safety and welfare of our workforce and our environment, EMR has developed an Integrated Management System (IMS).
The IMS is seamlessly integrated into our culture and activities, defining the way we conduct and manage our business. It seeks to mitigate and minimise risk and identify better solutions to continually improve our daily challenges and dynamic environments. Our systems are externally certified to recognised ISO standards: ISO 9001 [Quality], ISO14001 [Environment], ISO27001 [Information Security] and OHSAS 18001 [Occupational Health & Safety].
At EMR we strive for each day to be a 'SHE Perfect Day' where all employees go home safely to their families and the environment is not harmed. We start each new day with an expectation that it can be perfect!
A SHE Perfect Day includes:
We measure our success against this criteria at every location, every day.
Our Stop Work Authority permits any employee at any level to halt a job or task when a hazardous situation appears.
Although calling a halt to work to avoid injury or damage to property might seem like a simple decision, certain social and psychological factors can make the decision fraught with anxiety.
At EMR, our aim is to remove the fear factors – peer pressure and worry about angering supervisors/management – if Stop Work is applied.
All our employees are empowered to use the Stop Work Authority.
The EMR Life Rules seek to modify worker and supervisor behaviour in the workplace by raising awareness of the activities most likely to result in serious injuries and fatalities, as well as focussing on the actions and controls needed to mitigate them.
