• Engagement and consultation with workers, contractors, programme participants and/or their parent/caregiver, where there is an impact to health and safety.

• Maintain assets in good repair, in a clean and safe state.

• Support a safe and early return to work for people, if they are injured or ill, and encourage participation in health and wellbeing programmes.

• Accurate and timely reporting and investigation of incidents to minimise the impact and prevent reoccurrence.
