Health & Safety

Sedgman's Health, Safety and Environmental (HSE) Framework, COMPASS, is our direction to a workplace free from injury and harm. It brings together the following three elements into a single framework providing clear expectations to drive and support Sedgman’s culture of exceptional performance and continuous improvement in all that we do.

  • Leadership – setting expectations.
    • HSE Leadership Program
    • HSE Personal Action Plan
  • Behaviours – doing what is expected.
    • HSE Golden Rules
    • Behavoural Based Safety
  • Systems – structured processes and tools.
    • Integrated HSEQ Management Systems - Certified to AS/NZS and ISO standards
    • Cintellate™ - HSE Management software

A proactive HSE culture is considered a fundamental business principle endorsed by the active involvement of Senior Management, supported by the empowerment of line supervision and legitimised by a culture of trust across the workforce and within the communities in which we operate.

We want to create a positive culture. Not just a ‘Safety Culture’ but a ‘Sedgman Culture’:

  • Where strong and courageous leadership is common place
  • Where personal responsibility and commitment is the norm
  • Where the highest of standards, including HSE, are embedded in how we operate, make decisions, and interact with clients, suppliers, subcontractors and the community every day
