Health & Safety

Star Aluminium understands that Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) is of utmost concern for the majority of businesses. A safe working environment results in a productive and reliable workforce. A safe working environment results in workers going home every night. That is the reason why we ensure all our products are manufactured to no less that the standards set out by the Governing Australian bodies.

 

Primary Purpose: To avoid injuries or ill health to our employees from anything in the workplace

Our company continually strives to adopt “best practice” in all aspects of our business. OH&S is one area that we have invested time, effort and money in to ensure we are constantly improving our practices in the area of employee, contractor & customer safety.  The reason we have focused on this area is that it has a duty, apart from the Primary Purpose, from both a company and management perspective to:

 

  • Ensure a safe work environment for our employees & contractor workforce – This is in alignment with our “best practice” culture and recognises the importance of individuals.
  • Protect our business and allow for growth – Increasing expectations from clients that we have an active OH&S policy & safety program.
  • Comply with legislative requirements – By law all companies must have an active OH&S policy.
  • Minimise financial risk to our company – Reduce exposure to fines and litigation.

 

Management expects all employees, contractors and casual workforce to familiarise themselves with the OH&S Workplace Safety Album provided. Any comments or suggestions for improvement are not only welcomed but encouraged and should be fed directly back to management.

 

As per the Occupational Health & Safety Act 2004 & the Occupational Health & Safety Act 2007, we will do everything that is practicable to provide a safe workplace. It is expected that employees will also uphold their responsibilities under the Act to co-operate and participate. Safety is a shared responsibility for all. We will always continue to implement and practice workable and effective OH&S policies and practices.

 

Compliance

Our highly skilled team ensures that all products conform to Australian Standards, building and/or public access codes and certifications.

Durability

We use 6061T6 structural aluminium for our mobile scaffolding, aluminium stairs and other equipment because it forms well under immense heat so is easy to use for welding, forming and bending. Other benefits include:

  • Strength
  • Corrosion resistance
  • Lightweight

We use the highest quality aluminium welding wire being SAFRA 5356. SAFRA 5356 is the preferred welding wire by our clients as it provides arc control resulting in high quality welds.
