Avsec’s commitment to health and safety recognised

28 Jun 2016

Avsec’s health and safety programme was last fortnight audited against the ACC Workplace Safety Management Practices Programme (WSMP), with the auditor recommending a ‘tertiary’ rating to the ACC.

A tertiary status is the highest ranking available.

“This is fantastic news but it’s not surprising considering the excellent work done by staff across Avsec in the health and safety space,” said Civil Aviation Authority Chief Executive and Director of Civil Aviation Graeme Harris.

Mr Harris said that while the achievement is one Avsec can be proud of, health and safety in the workplace is not a ‘one-off’ event.

“We can’t rest on our laurels. Protecting ourselves and each other at work is a continuous effort requiring us all to be vigilant—the human cost of failure can be too high.”

“Thus, while we can all be proud of our achievement we should always be looking for ways in which we can do better.”
