Our Health And Safety Goal

Our Zero Harm goal sees us strive towards ensuring our people, the environment, and the communities in which we operate are not harmed during our works.
Our ultimate objective is to create a culture in our workplace where Zero Harm is known to be achievable and where we can all fearlessly strive towards that goal for ourselves, our work mates, our families and everyone who comes into our care.
Our commitment to the health and safety of our people remains unwavering and we will continue to ensure the systems we have in place are assisting us to strive towards our Zero Harm goal.

At Aussie Excavators Plant Hire we believe all incidents are preventable and invest heavily to provide a HSEQ focused culture and the skills needed for our people to identify hazards and take appropriate action to control them in the workplace.
In 2014, AEPH developed a number of Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) Management plans to assist in improving our safety culture and performance. This plan helps us realise and sustain zero harm across all our operations.
