Safety is a core value for Jamestrong Packaging. We ensure a safe and healthy workplace is maintained for all employees and comply with all safety and health laws and regulations. We also strive to improve workplace behaviours that can lead to injuries and illness. We take responsibility for safety and health programs, and aggressively maintain the necessary safeguards to provide safe working conditions. All our Australian sites are certified to AS/NZS 4801:2001 and our New Zealand plants have tertiary-level accreditation to the equivalent Safety Management System Certification.
We believe that employee interest, involvement, responsibility and teamwork all lead to injury and illness prevention. To this end, we insist that all employees be afforded the opportunity to be involved in creating our collective safe workplace.
BSafe! was introduced to the business as the overarching umbrella system for safety, encompassing our core values of trust, teamwork and excellence and based around behavioural safety. BSafe! is led by our ANZ Safety and Leadership Team (SALT) to improve the safety culture across our plants and became a critical component of our safety strategy. The strategy for continuous improvement has resulted in the introduction of our next-stage campaign: “It’s not just about you”.
