Company Policies

Guideline ACT Pty Ltd has implemented an integrated Business Management System that has policies for Work Health & Safety, Environmental and Quality management.

Work Health & Safety (WHS) Policy:

It is the policy of Guideline ACT that each employee shall be provided with a safe and healthy place in which to work. To achieve this policy, management will abide by relevant WHS Acts and Regulations.

Management is committed to assisting each employee to achieve a positive work/life balance.

Management and each employee have a personal obligation to ensure their own safety and that of fellow workers through an absolute commitment to safe work practices.

Guideline ACT will implement its policy and commitment by:

  • Making Safety its Number One Priority
  • communicating this policy and procedures to all employees, subcontractors and other stakeholders by ensuring they are aware of their obligations with respect to Company operations and the requirements of relevant WHS Acts and Regulations
  • cultivating a safety awareness attitude amongst all employees and subcontractors and providing an avenue for feedback through regular Consultative Committee meetings, Toolboxes and Suggestion/Improvement forms
  • putting in place safe work practices for all our activities and maintaining and upgrading our systems to continuously improve our operations
  • recording and investigating all incidents to prevent reoccurrence and providing rehabilitation for any injured employee to enable that employee to return to work as soon as possible
  • reviewing this policy and our procedures regularly to maintain their relevance
  • considering WHS issues in all company decisions.

Environmental Policy:

Guideline ACT (GLA) is committed to continual improvement of its Environmental Management System.

The objectives which GLA will base its Environmental Management System on are:

  1. Comply with relevant environmental legislation, Environment Protection Authority licences, guidelines and any specific contract requirements,
  2. Take all reasonable measures to stop erosion and sediment runoff, minimize dust and noise ensuring construction activities do not adversely affect the environment,
  3. Respond promptly to any situation which could cause adverse environmental impacts,
  4. Consider the environment in all aspects of operation at all levels including business decisions,
  5. Support the principles of Ecologically Sustainable Design and construction practices,
  6. Set environmental targets in terms of reportable environmental incidents at each management meeting and review the results.

Environmental compliance of the above objectives will be periodically reviewed. GLA aims to prevent problems from occurring and promote continuous improvement towards best practice in environmental management.

Appropriate training and instruction shall be provided to ensure that project staff understands how to implement the Environmental Policy and Management System. Staff members are encouraged to offer suggestions about how environmental protection measures can be improved. Such suggestions will be assessed by GLA management and implemented as appropriate.

GLA is open about its environmental policy and will make this policy statement available to all staff and on request to other relevant interested parties including the general public.

Quality Policy:

Guideline ACT Pty Ltd is committed to a Quality System for all of its products, services and operations. The objective of this commitment is to:

  1. Lower the cost and increase the benefits of our products to Clients
  2. Achieve Client satisfaction and confidence in our products
  3. Satisfy the legitimate needs of the community with regard to the impact of construction projects, environmental issues and safety.

Guideline ACT will implement its policy and commitment by:

  •  communicating this policy and procedures to all employees, subcontractors and other stakeholders by ensuring they are aware of their obligations with respect to our operations
  • providing products and services that meet or exceed the standards specified in our contracts and maintaining documentation to record this
  • embracing new ideas, technology and innovation and striving for continuous improvement
  • aiming to get it “right first time” and reducing the need for rework
  • reviewing this policy and our procedures regularly to maintain their relevance

Improvements in quality will flow on to Clients as more cost effective solutions to their needs. Less rework will increase employee satisfaction and motivation and lead to company growth.

Guideline ACT management and staff are committed to the implementation and continual improvement of the effectiveness of the Quality system. It is the responsibility of the managing director through supervisory staff, and in turn of all employees, to ensure the achievement of quality in a planned and documented manner.

The Guideline ACT Quality System is designed to satisfy the requirements of AS/NZS ISO 9001:2008, and can be modified to suit individual client needs.
