Health, Safety & Environment

The management of Smart Fabrication is committed to ensuring that all employees, contractors, visitors, and the public are safe from injury and risk to health whilst they are on Smart Fabrication’s premises or on site.

As part of our commitment to ensure employees, contractors and visitors are safe from risk of injury and our impact on the environment is minimised, Smart Fabrication has put a HSE Management System in place and achieved certification to OHSAS 18001 and ISO 14001. The company has appointed a HSEQ Manager to ensure that this system is maintained and clearly understood by all.

OHSAS 18001 is an international standard designed to standardize our approach of managing health and safety in the workplace. It will improve our commitment to prevent ill health and maintain legal compliance.
