Committed to Goal Zero

Cleanaway Worker with Truck

At Cleanaway, the safety, health and wellbeing of our people and the communities where we operate are our first and foremost consideration. We believe that everyone has the right to work in a safe workplace. It’s more than a philosophy – it’s a set of principles underpinned by systems of work that we call “Zero Harm” – working in an incident and injury free workplace. Supporting and reinforcing our values and safety culture are the Cleanaway Life Saving Rules. The key indicators we use to check on our progress towards Zero Harm include implementation of:

  • Safety leadership programs
  • Zero Harm observations of our work activities
  • Employee communication sessions and Toolbox Talks
  • Workplace site inspections
  • Employee and contractor drug and alcohol screenings
  • Internal and external audit programs

We will continue to identify and incorporate safety and health innovations and improvements at all levels within Cleanaway. This commitment is backed by our senior leaders, our cultural change strategies and our fully documented, rigorous company-wide management systems. The Cleanaway safety management system has been independently certified to meet the requirements of Australian Standard for Occupational Health and Safety AS 4801, helping us to achieve a positive safety, health and environmental record.
