GHD’s core values of Safety, Teamwork, Respect and
Integrity guide everything we do as a company and our people
are expected to act consistently within these values.
Our goal is to be one brand, renowned for client service and a
culture of safety. To achieve this goal, we are committed to
working cooperatively on the priorities and actions identified in
the five year GHD HSE Strategic Plan – SAFE You, SAFE Me, SAFE
GHD. By regularly reviewing our achievements against the HSE
Strategy’s goals, we will continually improve our safety
We acknowledge there are many stakeholders who make significant
contributions to improving HSE within our operations and we invite
them to contribute to the Strategy – these contributions will be
taken into account in its future development.
GHD has an internationally certified HSE Management System
(OHSAS 18001, AS 4801 and ISO 14001), whereby our HSE Strategy and
Management Standards set the following expectations for all GHD
- Compliance with GHD SAFEguards and Environmental
- Never letting the effects of drugs or alcohol put ourselves or
others at risk
- Implementing the GHD Authority to Stop Work process
when unsafe behaviours or conditions are identified
- Accepting personal accountability, rewarding desirable
behaviour and discouraging undesirable behaviours - Safety Means
Awareness, Responsibility and Teamwork (SMART)
- Respecting our clients’ measures to reduce risk and compliance
with such HSE rules
to see GHD’s HSE Policy.
Improving our safety culture is not just about our people, it is
also about a commitment from our leaders to act as safety
Our Management Team sets the tone and direction of ‘what is
important’ through visible leadership. The visible actions and
demonstrated behaviours of leaders reverberate much louder and
longer than words.
In the last two employee surveys, our people have recognised our
commitment to safety with 93 percent agreeing with the statement,
“GHD is committed to the safety of our people” Inspiring our people
to become more committed and proactive in relation to HSE continues
to be a major focus for GHD.
GHD values the environment, both as an intrinsic element of
business, and in the sense that it provides benefits to the
communities in which we operate. Click here
