FILTEC Health and Safety
From the board down FILTEC have a culture of ensuring safety on all activities we undertake. Our H&S committee encourage open dialogue on safety and ensure we are continuously improving the way we operate our H&S framework. All FILTEC site staff hold ‘Building Passports’ under the NZOSH recognised Site Safe Certificate programme.
We are serious about the welfare of our employees and reducing work related accidents. This enables us to operate in a safe manner that respects the health and safety of our employees, our clients, and the communities in which we operate. We will continuously improve our performance through finding safer ways to perform and execute our work both onsite and offsite.
As well as keeping legally compliant, our focus on employee safety increases the quality of our craft and improves contractor relationships.

- Make sure all safety stats and improvements are well communicated and visible to all team members.

- FILTEC employees and contractors are NEVER sent to a job without the necessary training, permits, uniform or tools.
- FILTEC employees working with wastewater are immunised against hepatitis A and B.
- Vehicles and equipment are fully compliant – tested and up to date.
- Once on site, all team members have to fill out a safety analysis of the site, risks and comply with the documents given by the staff supervisor, including reporting.
- All sites are audited weekly by the site inspector, including an extensive final audit of all projects to ensure they comply with the recognised quality and health and safety standards.
