Health & Safety

We think there’s nothing more important than the health and safety of our employees and those we work with. Caring for our people and the communities we work in is fundamentally important to us as an organisation and there is no project or deadline that justifies risking lives or injury.

Knowing everyone will return home safely every day is our vision for safety, and to achieve this, at John Holland we: 

  •          Put safety first, always;
  •          Engage hearts and minds and demonstrate our commitment through personal action;
  •          Make safety personal, always.

Our experience, and that of the wider industry, tells us that injury exposure comes from a consistent set of high risk activities that have the potential to cause harm. That is why we developed our Global Mandatory Requirements (GMRs). The GMRs are evidence-based requirements that set the minimum standard required for our workplaces when planning, managing and undertaking these high risk activities.

A number of years after their launch, our commitment to the GMRs is unwavering and they remain central to our approach for managing, and where possible eliminating these high risks.

The GMRs when coupled with the Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) behaviours expected of our people provide a solid foundation when it comes to our expectations regarding safety.
