WorkSafe Platinum Accreditation
For DM Civil, OHS is an integral part of all our operations and this has been recognised by WorkSafe by being awarded Platinum Certificate of Achievement in June 2016. We join an elite group of businesses that have achieved this prestigious standing in recognition of our Health and Safety Management Systems.
An independent assessor carried out assessments and DM Civil had to meet the strictest WorkSafe criteria to achieve this Platinum standard. To learn more visit the WorkSafe Plan Certificate.
DM Civil have three Core Principles under which we operate our business: Diverse, Motivated and Committed. One key aspect of operations is “Committed” to, is Safety. We have a positive safety culture, with all aspects of the organisation actively involved in contributing to our growing safety culture and practices.
All aspects of our operations are compliant with internal, client and regulatory standards. The SEQ Department has a constructive relationship with all levels of the company, both at management and site levels. Our SEQ and operational team are committed to maintaining the highest OHS standards. We achieved certification to AS/NZS 4801:2001 - OSH Management Systems in 2007. We have maintained this accreditation without a single nonconformance report being raised against its system during the past nine years by external auditors. DMC also hold certifications to AS/NZS ISO 9001:2015, Quality and AS/NZS ISO 14001:2015, Environment.
An important element of DM Civil’s Integrated Management System (IMS) is the Safety Management Plan (SMP). This incorporates 40 chapters that provide clear guidelines to Project Management crew’s on their responsibilities for various aspects of our SMS.
Our SEQ Department carry out regular internal audits of their projects to ensure the SMP is being followed on all sites. Any findings are transferred onto the site Corrective Action Register and closed off when the finding has been actioned.
This certification is valid for two years but we are committed to the mantra of “continual improvement” and believe we can always further develop our systems to ensure they meet the needs of our employees and clients. We take pride in our high performing and positive SEQ procedures and we will continue to improve our industry-leading safety culture.
