At SHAPE, we pride ourselves on our safety-first culture
The wellbeing of our people and subcontractors is our top priority, and we have always strived to maintain high safety standards on our sites. We always look for better ways for our teams and subcontractors to access the information they need when they need it. That’s why we’ve developed an industry-first, SHAPE Minimum Standards (SMS) app, developed to provide quick and easy access to environmental, health, safety and quality information from your mobile device!
Safety at your fingertips
The app houses the key expectations of SHAPE’s environmental, health, safety and quality management systems, as well as relevant Australian Standards, Codes of Practice and WHS legislation.
Since releasing the app, the improved awareness and understanding of hazards has helped to decrease the number of electrical incidents on SHAPE sites by 67 per cent, and asbestos-related incidents by 29 per cent.
Lifting safety standards
Construction workers can instantly reference SHAPE’s Minimum Standards. A number of our sub-contractors have found it a great way to maintain high work health and safety standards, reducing the risk of injuries on sites.
The SMS is a tool used to communicate site COVID safety information by breaking down content from our Coronavirus Action Plan, site implementation guides and other resources.
