"It is recognised throughout CJD Equipment that the management of health and safety is about creating and embedding within the organisation a culture dedicated to eliminating accidents at work and work-related ill health."
At CJD Equipment we consider health & safety, and our impact on the environment, an important part of our values.
We aim to supply Australia with the world’s best products backed by world-class service and support. We do this with safety being at the forefront of everything we do, continuously striving to create a safe and healthy working environment while ensuring that we do this in an environmentally conscientious way
Health & Safety:
CJD Equipment puts safety first in all places we work, at all times, for all staff, customers, contractors, members of the public and every other third party.
Our overall objective is that;
- No one is injured in the course of performing their work
- No one’s health, physical or mental, is compromised
CJD is committed to fully understanding and meeting our customers’ requirements. We realise that each of us, along with our customers, suppliers, and contractors, play a vital role in the process of continually improving how we fulfill this commitment.
We strive to deliver and service equipment and supply parts of the highest practical quality and safety that reliably and consistently meet our customers’ needs
It is recognised throughout CJD Equipment that the management of health and safety is about creating and embedding within the organisation a culture dedicated to eliminating accidents at work and work-related ill health.
Such a culture of communication and consultation contributes to the physical and mental well-being of our staff members, suppliers, and contractors, to the benefit of themselves and their families as well as their company. It is also concerned with ensuring that all CJD Business Units are compliant with all regulatory and statutory requirements and recognise that we all hold a responsibility for health and safety realisation. Safety is everybody’s responsibility.
CJD is committed to responsible management of all our operations to achieve the least possible impact on the environment.
Our overall objective is to:
- Reduce adverse impacts on the environment arising from the activities of our business by preventing environmental damage and minimising pollution, and
- Ensure that an environmental risk analysis is performed for all activities that may have an impact on the environment and that work methods are created which will minimise harm
Our commitment extends to all our activities which may have the potential to adversely affect the environment. We aim to prevent environmental damage, minimise pollution, energy and resource usage and ensure that the principles of sustainable development are operated throughout all of CJD Equipment’s operations.
All CJD business units have recycling programs in place. This includes having spill control kits located in multiple locations throughout the stores and workshops and equipping all service vehicles with a mandatory spill control kit.
With environmental wastage in mind, in August 2016, we embarked on a programme to install Solar panels at our five largest energy consuming branches to reduce our environmental footprint.
Environment, every bit counts.
