HEALTH AND SAFETY
Datatel is committed to the health and safety of our people and contractors. In 2017, we implemented our “Switch on to Safety” strategy that focuses on seven key priority areas to drive improved performance:
AZ/NZS 4801 / OHSAS18001 Certification
AS/NZS 4801 is an Australian and New Zealand standard and OHSAS 18001 is an international standard. They both outline strict requirements related to Health and Safety Management Systems. Both of these certifications clearly demonstrate that an organisation has knowledge of, and control over, all relevant hazards that may exist as a result of operations or abnormal conditions. These certifications also demonstrate a strong commitment to ongoing improvement of safety performance.
