Health, Safety and Wellbeing
Some situations afford us the luxury of a second chance, but when it comes to health, safety and wellbeing there is no such thing.
That’s why our safety philosophy is deeply embedded in our culture. It guides how we operate and it determines our performance.
We gladly nail our colours to the mast by stating our belief that a workplace without accidents, disease or harm is indeed possible; embracing prevention is part of the solution.
Our beliefs are enshrined in our Think Safe, Act Safe and Be Safe philosophy. What's more, they reflect the Vision Zero global campaign which we actively support.
One of the most important distinctions in the arena of health, safety and well-being is that it’s not a destination. Quite the opposite - we’re on a journey of continuous improvement steered by our aspirational goals and values.
Health, Safety and Wellbeing Policy
Our senior team are the foremost leaders of our commitment to our Health, Safety and Wellbeing Policy. It is our bedrock and we refer to it as our ‘Caring Pathway’. It’s a policy that helps us make continuous improvements. Further, our system in Australia is fully compliant to ISO 45001. Our system in New Zealand is currently certified against NZS4801 and will be audited against ISO 45001 this year.
In a nutshell: we’re about ensuring that everybody goes home healthily and safely every day.Read more
Our commitment to health & safety in practice: Leading from the top
The old adage that actions speak louder than words applies to an initiative by T+T Group Managing Director, Doug Johnson. He engineered and led a roadshow to encourage a free and frank discussion about workplace health and safety across all offices in Australia and NZ. In 24 overwhelmingly successful interactive sessions he delivered the message that health and safety truly is everyone’s responsibility. He did so in a disarmingly engaging manner that resounded across T+T and beyond.
This roadshow neatly demonstrates our genuine dedication to the cause and our willingness to do what it takes.

This year we are focusing on doing things even better than last year:
