Safety, Health and Wellbeing


Smarter Together, Safer Together

The Perenti Group considers the effective management of safety, health and wellbeing integral to the success of our worldwide business, and accordingly our commitment to these areas is inextricably linked to our commitment to overall business objectives.

We foster a culture where physical and psychological safety is valued by every member of our team. Each person is responsible for looking out for the safety of themselves as well as their workmates, regardless of position or title. Perenti supports our employees in their efforts by providing training programs based on best practice international and Australian national competency standards. We aim to exert a strong and positive influence on our clients, service providers, suppliers, our  people and the community.

Smarter Together, Safer Together

We expect that safety is integrated into everyday business and operational practices, and therefore planning and executing quality work to achieve positive outcomes remains a focus of all our people regardless of where they operate or what task is at hand. We believe that only by working together can we achieve our goals.   Smarter together, safer together means:

  • We look out for our workmates and show we care by speaking up when something doesn’t look or feel right
  • No one person has the best solution. Together we can identify better ways to make it easy for people to work safely
  • Ultimately, we can only ever achieve our objective of nil life-changing events by working together
