Our Code Of Practice

The health and safety of all persons on our jobsite is of paramount importance to us. Our Code of Practice is the pursuit to providing the safest possible work environment without injury to persons or damage to property and equipment.

To sustain this level of commitment, we recognize that risks must be anticipated, identified and controlled to prevent injury and illness. Safety is our direct responsibility and we accept the challenge of minimizing both the risks and the environmental impacts inherent to our industry.

Hanlon Excavation and Demolition comply with the standards of health, safety and welfare required under the WHS Act and the Work Health and Safety Regulations. Our in-house OH&S Policy and Procedure Program has been designed to clearly define Safe Work Practices and Procedures for our team to follow, and to be part of our team, these must be clearly understood and accepted:

  • Safety Protocols and Precautions Procedure
  • Safety Training and Education Policy
  • Personal Protective Equipment Policy
  • First Aid Policy
  • Fire Prevention Policy
  • Maintenance and General Safety Rules of Tools and Equipment Procedure
  • Lockout and Tagout Policy
  • Emergency Response Plan and Injury Response Procedure
  • Accident and Incident Investigation Policy
  • Chemical Spill Response Procedures
  • WHMIS (Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System) Policy / SDS (Safety Data Sheets)
  • SWMS (Safe Work Method Statement) Procedure
  • Visitors, Suppliers and Contractors Safety Policy
  • Planned Workplace Inspection Policy
  • Environmental Health Hazards and Controls Policy

A Safe Work Method Statement is a vital part of a Safe Work System. Before commencing any demolition project we complete a Safe Work Method Statement and employ stringent occupational health and safety measures.

Good communication is of utmost importance on a jobsite. Hanlon Excavation and Demolition conduct field site safety meetings each morning prior to the commencement of work. These 'toolbox' meetings review all health and safety issues and all personnel are required to proactively address any potential hazards they may encounter.
