In alignment with the “DIC WAY” the purpose of this Work Health and Safety Management System (DIC SAFETY FIRST SYSTEM) outlines the DIC Australia and New Zealand (DIC ANZ) structure and approach to establishing and maintaining effective health and safety management to achieve a consistently high standard of safety performance.
DIC Safety First System describes the principles, structure, planning activities, responsibilities, procedures, equipment and resources for the ongoing development, review and improvement of the System which will assist DIC ANZ to manage the WHS risks associated with the business and undertakings of the organisation.
This System applies to all DIC ANZ workers including the Board, Senior Management, employees, contractors and visitors across DIC owned or operated sites, including places a worker goes, or is likely to be, while at work that DIC has influence and control over. All references to ‘workers’ within the System should therefore be read to include contractors as well as paid employees.
DIS Safety First System applies to all WHS matters created by the activities and operations controlled by DIC and its related entities, and any impact of those activities and operations on workers (including contractors). It has been designed in acknowledgment that DIC will frequently share WHS duties with other stakeholders i.e. PCBUs such as commercial partners, contractors, chain of responsibility laws and suppliers.
The System structure is based on a standardised model designed to meet DIC ANZ operational needs. Underpinning the elements of this System are operational WHS policies, procedures, tools and identified interrelated processes designed to meet WHS legislative requirements and key requirements of ISO 45001:2018 – Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems and supporting systems.
The System consists of the following 11 elements and associated systems and platforms:
