Safety — It’s in our DNA

Safety starts here with us, we’ve built it into our core. It’s what our recruitment services and solutions stand on. And we continue to stand strong.

We’ve Built a Certified Safety Culture Across the Globe

Tecside is a global partner of choice in the safe provision of recruitment and contract staffing solutions. Our safety system is based upon practical and robust procedures certified to the Australian standard AS/NZS 4801:2001 and the global standard ISO 45001:2018 for Occupational Health & Safety Management. All our procedures are understood and implemented consistently across all locations that have been independently assessed by a JAS-ANZ accredited body yearly.

Safety Is Not Something Which Can Be Delegated or Contracted Out

Safety is done in-house at Tecside by our Safety and Wellbeing Department. A department that delivers safety education, knowledge and responsibility into our local and global operational teams. Regardless of where our employees are working, whether it’s across APAC, UAE or the UK, our safety is managed consistently and effectively, reducing the risk of potential exposure to work-related hazards at every step of your project.

Forever Updating Our Safety Aims and Standards

We’re not afraid to embrace new technology. We love it. Especially when that innovation adds to your company’s practical and robust strategic safety aims. Investing in positive change that adds value and reduces risk for all stakeholders is ongoing for us.

Candidates Prioritise Workplace Safety When Accepting Roles

Tecside is a safety conscious recruitment agency, we’ve standardised our procedures and strategically invested in developing a progressive safety culture and we partner with our clients to ensure the same with our host sites.

Our processes are proven to improve employee safety, reduce workplace risks and create better, safer working conditions — making our partnering clients’ workplaces even more attractive to our pool of top talent.

The safety and wellbeing of our employees is always our top priority, and our aim is to ensure our workers leave their work at the end of the day in the same condition as they arrived in.

Our Commitment to Host Employers Safety Standards and Procedures

Our dedicated safety managers operate within a well-defined internal culture. We visit work sites and assess for risks and hazards using Tecside’s prescribed systems and we do this prior to any workers being assigned to that workplace for the first time. The Tecside talent team attends and facilitates on-site toolbox talks and consultations, wellbeing checks, safety initiatives and runs events plus much more throughout the year to target awareness of workplace safety.

We also undertake annual safety assessments at our partnering client sites to ensure best workplace safety practices are in place. Upholding certification requires commitment to continuous regulation and accountability. We’re proud to have held our certifications with the help of our dedicated Safety & Wellbeing Manager.
