Safety

Our number one priority is the safety and
​wellbeing of all employees.

It is easy for businesses to say they put safety first – it is much harder for them to actually do it.
Too often in manufacturing we see accidents happen.

We believe we have a significant social and legal responsibility to provide a safe working
environment. To do this we always put safety first. Timberlink has a strong Health and
Safety culture across all of its mills and sites and believes that everyone should return
home the same way they came to work.

We manage the hazards and risks within our workplace by ensuring they are understood
by all. Controls are not just talked about, they ​are put into plans that become integral to the
way in which we operate. We are dedicated to supporting ongoing improvements in health
and safety performance.

Through leadership, individual commitment and responsibility, Timberlink fosters a culture that improves the health and wellbeing of all our people. With Zero Harm being our goal we all look out for each other to ensure that we don't get hurt
at work.

​We all look
​out for each other to ensure that we don't get hurt at work.

Our Safety Culture

We want everybody to make it home at the end of every shift, every day.

In order to develop our safety culture beyond ‘dependent’, we need to ensure that it is also ‘just’. This means we will:

  • consistently treat people in a fair and equitable manner
  • have reasonable expectations of them that allow them to take reasonable risks, and​ will not penalise them for making honest mistakes
  • hold people to account for deliberate choices to do the wrong thing, or for not exercising a reasonable level of care

Through leadership, individual commitment and responsibility, we
are fostering a culture that improves the health and wellbeing of all
​our people.
