APL is determined to keep people safe. That applies equally to our own people, our clients, their employees, customers, contractors and all manner of visitors. The scale and scope of our operations enables us to do this with a very high degree of effectiveness.
We prequalify and manage all contractors through our Trade Services Panel, thereby removing this challenging responsibility from our clients at no additional cost. We operate hazard registers for our clients’ properties, and provide these to contractors. This ensures they are informed of safety risks, such as underground power cables or chemicals stored on site. We proactively undertake preventative measures and report existing and potential dangers to our clients, along with the proposed remedy.
All APL staff who visit sites have received specialist training and operate to rigorous safety plans and reporting templates. To ensure our systems are robust, we commission an external, independent audit of our business to identify areas for improvement. While all the above may protect our clients from substantial financial penalties, these pale when compared to the real benefit of protecting people from injury or worse.
Our Health and Safety services are built into all property services where APL staff physically attend a site. This extends across our entire client portfolio, from central and local Government departments to Body Corporates, owners of commercial and industrial property, to farm land and vacant sites.
