Our Safety Training

Safety, Health, Environmental and Quality At Actavo, we continuously strive to deliver on our strategic goal of Zero Harm. To us, that means ensuring that everybody who works for and on behalf of us goes home safe every day including our clients and members of the public who interact with our operations. We aim to do things “Right First Time” in order to deliver on our customer commitments and promise, by providing quality driven services and products. We recognise the impact that our business has on the environment and on the communities where we operate. We strive to minimise our impact on the environment while working with the local communities to leave a lasting and positive impact in the locations where we operate.
Health & Safety

At the core of our Zero Harm philosophy is the principle that everybody should Work Safe, Go Home Safe every day. Central to attaining this is the belief and understanding within the business that health and safety is everybody’s responsibility, from the CEO to the men and women on the ground delivering the services and products. They are provided with training, coaching and advice on an on-going basis to enable them to make the right decision when it comes to controlling risk. We are so committed to this training, we have purpose-built our own training house.

Environment From waste management to asbestos removal to operating in areas that are critical ecological sites, Actavo is committed to minimising our impact on the environment. This includes managing and reducing our carbon footprint through forward planning, adopting new technologies and work practices across all our business units. Our energy management commitments fall within our environmental objectives with a specific focus on fleet management, which is our primary energy usage. With the use of technology, we actively manage the fleet usage and utilisation in order to minimise waste and fuel consumption. This coupled with our training programmes ensures that our fleet achieves maximum efficiency.

The quality of the services and products that we supply is a key success factor in our continued growth and success. Listening to and identifying our customer’s requirements forms the basis for our quality management processes within the business. Each customer has their own unique requirements and we strive to ensure that not only do we meet those expectations but exceed them where possible.
