R2R Services | Health & Safety

 

R2R Services is in the process of obtaining SAI Global Certification of its OHS Management System with regard to AS 4801 and OHSAS 18001.  In June 2013 it successfully completed its Stage 1 Audit and is now proceeding to have its system certified in October 2013.  Our Acknowledgment of Application certificate can be seen here.

 

To assist in communication and promotion of a workplace health and safety culture within the organisation, R2R Services’ has developed its OHS management system around the R U Safe logo. 120920_RUSAFE_logo.png

 

The promotion is designed to ingrain into employees the importance of safety and living and working in a safe and healthy manner, not just in the workplace, but life generally.

 

R2R Services’ Occupational Health and Safety Management System (OHSMS) establishes a framework for identifying risks, controlling risks, assessing the effectiveness of those controls and continuous improvement of the management of OHS and is a formal documented system that:

 

  • Ensures a client contract is executed without any harm to people or assets 
  • Drives a culture – the R U Safe culture - within R2R Services where individuals take personal responsibility for safety, where safe behaviour is reinforced and unsafe behaviours not tolerated
  • Enables unsafe activities to be stopped and corrected immediately
  • Meets the requirements of a client’s policies, procedures, current  OHS legislation and Standards
  • Ensures continuous improvement in OHS management

 

The OHSMs identifies the OHS framework and management activities that will be carried out in support of its operations and are to be applied to the services provided under a contract.

 

The system also provides for the effective management of workplace injuries and the satisfactory return to work of injured workers and applies to all activities of R2R Services and includes hazards and risks which the organisation can either control or influence.

 

The OHSMS is designed to eliminate or where not reasonably practicable minimise risk to the health, safety and well-being of persons at R2R Services’ sites. The approach reflects the principles of AS / NZS 4801 and OHSAS 18001 and legislation identified in the Register of Legal and Other Requirements.

 

It consists of the following elements:

 

  • Consultation and Communication
  • OHS Training and Competency
  • Recordkeeping and Document Control
  • OHS Risk Management
  • Process Control – Operating Procedures
  • Purchases
  • Emergency Response and Preparedness
  • Inspection and Testing
  • Workplace and OHS Statistics
  • Health Surveillance
  • Corrective and Preventive Action
