THE RIGHT PERSON FOR THE RIGHT JOB FOR A SAFE WORKPLACE
At Bayonne Construction, we prioritise the well-being and safety of our employees, clients, and fellow New Zealanders.
We want to see everyone go home to their family at the end of every workday unharmed and satisfied.
To maintain and continuously improve our safety programs, we have a dedicated Health & Safety and Quality Assurance team who are always working alongside our Senior Management Team to uphold the high internal and legislative standards we set for ourselves.
ROBUST HEALTH AND SAFETY WORK SYSTEM
Bayonne Construction has a comprehensive Health & Safety framework (policies, procedures, SOP’s, JSA’s and safe work methods).
Our Health & Safety management policies are deeply ingrained in our organisation and easily accessible to all staff members at any time.
EMPHASISING SAFETY THROUGH COMMUNICATION
To ensure that safety remains at the forefront of our operations we maintain a strong culture of communication when it comes to safety standards.
Safety is emphasised across the team through:
Daily and job start Toolbox meetings
Job planning sessions (Project Manager and crew)
Monthly small group ‘speed dating’ Health & Safety sessions
Monthly Health & Safety management meetings
Adhoc meetings and informal talks
COMPREHENSIVE SAFETY TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT
Our extensive training programme starts the first day someone joins our team. This training equips our team with the knowledge and skills to maintain high levels of productivity while prioritising their own safety, the safety of our clients, and the safety of the public.
Within the first three months at Bayonne, every team member completes:
Bayonne induction and customer inductions
In-house competency assessments
