About Our Safety

We are committed to ensuring the health, safety and well-being of our employees, contractors and other people who may interact with our work activities.

We strive to continually improve as a company through training and education providing a framework for continuous improvement and progressively higher standards of work health and safety for all our people.

At A W Edwards, our goal is to create an incident-free working environment. We believe that this goal can only be achieved if we empower every person on each project, from the Project Director through to the Labourers to take a constructive role in promoting improvements in work health and safety practices and to be Safety Leaders.

We Are All Safety Leaders

People are engaged on health and safety matters, feeling empowered to intervene and contribute their views transparently at all levels, because they are listened to, respected, and involved.

Operational safety excellence comes from the highly detailed planning and preparation of working activities, where the elimination of health and safety risks is an absolute priority.

Health & Safety is our way of life! People go ‘above & beyond’ set standards to ensure that their workplace is safe in a well-maintained environment and that all personnel have the correct competencies to perform their work. All of us are safety leaders, united to the care and well-being of others and committed to sharing safety lessons that contribute to our safety culture.

“Safe Production is our No.1 priority. We share this vision with our stakeholders and partners, working together to achieve our Zero Incidents Vision.”


Our commitment to safety goes hand in hand with prioritising the well-being of our staff.

We firmly believe that a safe work environment encompasses not only physical safety but also the mental, emotional, and overall well-being of our dedicated team members.

Beyond safety, we recognise the importance of fostering a supportive and nurturing atmosphere. We actively promote work-life balance, offer wellness programs, and provide resources for mental health support. Our commitment to the overall well-being of our employees reflects our deep appreciation for their contributions and ensures their continued growth and success.

Join us in our unwavering dedication to safety and the well-being of our exceptional team. Together, we build a safer, healthier, and more fulfilling future for everyone involved.
