Bowling Infrastructure Group considers it imperative that all staff return home to their families fit and healthy at the end of each day, the impact of our works on the environment is minimised, and that our projects are constructed to specification, tolerance and good trade practice. For these reasons it is important to ensure we have effective management systems implemented in our organisation.
Health and Safety Management
The companies of the Bowling Infrastructure Group consider it imperative that all staff return home to their families fit and healthy at the end of each day. It is for this reason that we place particular importance on our Health and Safety management and systems. We also consider it important that we satisfy all our legislative requirements with regards to the Health and Safety Act.
Our business units each have Safety Management Systems and Procedures which have been accredited to ACC tertiary level which is the highest level attainable. On top of our accreditations we regularly seek further advice from independent consultants to ensure that our health and safety procedures are effective, compliant and continuous improvement is achieved.
We have also implemented other initiatives to ensure that health and safety is not compromised in any way, including further training of staff, pre-employment medicals, annual health monitoring and random drug and alcohol testing. We also value and seek input from all staff with regards to risks and hazards as we seek to continually improve our systems.
Bowling infrastructure Group and its business units take their responsibilities very seriously where it comes to the environment. We try to be proactive when it comes to environmental management on our projects and where possible try to offer alternative solutions which minimise environmental risk or impact of our operations.
For each project we undertake we assess the environmental risks and implement the industry best practice controls for the task, prior to undertaking the work. For larger projects where environmental management becomes more complex and requires a systematic approach we implement a site specific Environmental Management Plan for the project.
The majority of the Bowling Infrastructure group’s staff enjoy hobbies which involve being out and about in the environment. For this reason, we have personal and business interests vested in our operations and its implications on the environment. We actively seek to reduce, reuse and recycle our waste to keep the impact of our operations to a minimum.
Bowling Infrastructure Group considers quality an important aspect of any project. It is our mission to ensure that quality is not sacrificed on any project to save time or money, thus ensuring that our customers are satisfied and remain satisfied with our works throughout the duration of the project and the lifecycle of the asset.
We ensure that all works are undertaken and supervised by staff that are competent and qualified to undertake the works required. We invest time and money in training our staff on aspects relating to quality assurance, to ensure that this is not compromised on projects.
On large or complex projects it may become necessary to manage quality systematically to ensure that quality assurance elements are not missed due to a wider ranging scope. In this instance a project specific Quality Management Plan or Inspection and Test Plan will be implemented to ensure that the quality aspects of a project of larger magnitude are managed effectively.
The business units of Bowling Infrastructure Group is currently working towards implementing a quality management system that has been prepared in accordance with the guidelines of ISO 9001. This system is currently being improved with the goal of having the system accredited in the next 3 years.
Within the Bowling Infrastructure Group we have NPM Remediation which is licenced and accredited by Worksafe New Zealand to undertake A Class and B Class asbestos removal. It is important to ensure that compliant contractors are used for the removal of asbestos as there are a number of companies offering a service that do not comply fully with legislation. This not only poses a health and safety risk to workers, staff, family and the nearby public, but also may result in Worksafe issuing an infringement notice on a project.
All the business units of Bowling Infrastructure Group take their responsibilities with regards to Health and Safety, the Environment and Quality very seriously and consider these components critical elements of any successful project. We have processes, systems and accreditations in place relating to these items.
