KEEPING OUR PEOPLE SAFE
The wellbeing of our people is of paramount importance. We follow established procedures to ensure compliance with applicable occupational health and safety laws and regulations. We believe that safety awareness is one of the best ways to prevent accidents and every employee receives basic safety training before they begin work at one of our sites. This includes alerting people to any potential hazards and providing guidance in what to do in an emergency.

We welcome people from all walks of life and strive to be a place where the most qualified people want to work, where employees are hired and advanced based on merit, and where there are widely available opportunities to develop within the business.
DEVELOPMENT AND TRAINING

Whether it is on-the-job training, formal professional development or the support of a good manager, we want to invest in our people and help them to grow their skills and knowledge, enabling them to be more proficient at the tasks that their role requires. Not only does this boost productivity, it also increases job satisfaction helping us to retain talent by encouraging people to build a rewarding career with us.
