Safety First

At Altus, safety is our why.

It is the bedrock of our culture, permeates every part of our business and gets more focus relative to any other function. Our goal is simple and unwavering - to get everyone home safely.

We recognize that not only are we providing safe work methods for our own staff, but for our customers’ staff, contractor staff and the travelling public who interact with worksites.

Safety is not accidental; it is the result of well-organized and refined systems, policies, and procedures effectively communicated and executed throughout the business. Staff and customer engagement are key, along with commitment and support from the management team.

Altus adopts a variety of methods for staff and customer engagement in order to operationalize its safety essentials, including:

  • Training, company and project inductions
  • Toolbox talks at shift commencement
  • Regular staff consultation and communication of priorities and safety alerts through a wide range of media including depot screens and notice boards, intranet login pages, branch meetings and direct phone calls

Our company maintains formal records and statistics of both lead and lag safety incidents to measure performance and provide the basis for continued improvement. We maintain a strong emphasis on near miss reporting, with a clear objective of identifying possible trends and mitigating risk before an incident occurs. Where incidents do occur, our staff follows strict reporting and investigation protocols to ensure that they are not repeated. Both lead and lag safety statistics and responses feature in regular management reviews.

Altus is continually refining its systems, policies and procedures to underpin improved safety outcomes for staff, our customers and the public. Together with ongoing innovation of operating methodologies and equipment configurations we are confident in our ability to bring the safest methods of work to industry.

If you want to partner with a traffic management company that cares as much about the safety of your staff as you do, we look forward to hearing from you.
