Health & Safety

Health and Safety is paramount to our business. It is at the top of everyone’s priority list.

Gemco is 100% focused on maintaining the highest Health and Safety standards

We are continually looking for ways to improve. A current member of Site Wise and accredited with ACC Tertiary level, we strive to be industry leaders in the field of Health and Safety.

Knowledge of Health and Safety empowers people to stay safe onsite, and to feel confident in the workplace. Gemco educates all staff and subcontractors about Health and Safety from day one of their induction.

“I have these young fellas here and I have the chance to protect them. No one comes to work to die. Everyone comes to work, to make money, so they can go home and have fun…. My goal is for my boys to go home safe at night.”

“Non-negotiable. That’s probably the best way to describe Health and Safety standards here at Gemco. We are actively committed to the health and wellbeing of our employees, and to providing a safe workplace for our staff, subcontractors, clients and the public.

In all aspects of the business, Gemco aims to be an industry leader, and Health and Safety is no exception. Our employees, and subcontractors go to work each day knowing they are in safe hands. Clients engage us knowing that Health and Safety is paramount in their project.”

Amy Harris – Health and Safety Manager

“It’s not just about the paperwork looking right. Our management team leads with a hands-on approach to Health and Safety, prioritising ongoing staff health monitoring and training. All Gemco staff are first aid trained and Site Safe registered.

It’s our common practice to encourage and expect every person present on a Gemco job site to identify potential hazards, and to report any unsafe work practices and workplaces. We are not talking just our employees and subcontractors – we mean everyone. It’s non-negotiable. We may be a highly commercial business, but there is no task too urgent, or method too costly, to be performed in an unsafe manner.”
