Health & Safety

We owe it to our clients to deliver on our services, but more importantly, we owe it to our employees and subcontractors to deliver on a healthy and safe work place.

At Douglas Partners our goal is that all people involved in our work go home safe and sound every day. We believe that the best way to achieve this outcome is to foster a positive safety culture. A culture where everyone in the business considers themselves a safety leader, where health and safety considerations permeate all that we do and where we work together as a team with everyone looking out for each other.

We deliver on this by:

  • Continual promotion and improvement in work place health and safety
  • complying with relevant health and safety, workplace injury management and workers compensation legislation and regulations;
  • planning work activities to eliminate or control foreseeable hazards or risks;
  • fostering a safety culture, including establishment of Committees;
  • providing appropriate health and safety consultation, instruction and training for employees; and
  • maintaining equipment and workplaces in safe condition;

Our health and safety goal is to continually strive for improvement and to be able to demonstrate this to our employees and clients through our actions and results. 

Safety leadership is recognised and rewarded at all levels throughout Douglas Partners.

To this end, Douglas Partners has implemented a Branch Safety Culture Award which commends the branch whose staff most effectively and consistently promote a positive safety culture and take a leadership position on safety and looking out for each other.

This years' winners of the Branch Safety Culture Award was our Townsville Team who were chosen for the award based on their consistent commitment to safety, most particularly their teamwork in setting safe processes for a new drilling rig.
