Next review: 03.2025


The Green Clean Team is committed to the health and safety of all employees and others including the general public that may be affected by our work activities.  No job is so important that it can’t be completed in a safe manner. This includes the elimination of workplace injury and illness by complying with OH&S legislation, health department requirements, demonstrating due diligence and the application of best practice strategies for the cleaning industry.


This policy applies to all office and site-based employees.


This is achieved by:

  • Complying with statutory requirements, codes, standards including ISO45001:2018 and guidelines.
  • Setting up objectives and targets with the aim of eliminating work related incidents in relation to our activities, products and services.
  • Monitoring Government safety requirements, alerts and notifications associated with pandemics.
  • Defining roles and responsibilities for occupational health, safety and environment.

Strategies will include:

  • Continuously improve the effectiveness of our Safety Management System.
  • We will set measurable, realistic and achievable quality objectives which are reviewed at least annually.
  • Monitor progress toward achieving our OH&S objectives and manage non-conformities using the OHS Register and monitoring progress of specific plans. Improvement reviews will take place at least quarterly to review all actions and initiate further preventative actions as necessary.
  • We will ensure occupational health and safety management principles are included in all our organisational planning activities.
  • Providing ongoing education and training to all our employees.
  • Consulting with employees and other parties to improve decision making on occupational health and safety matters.
  • Ensuring incidents are investigated and recurrence is eliminated or greatly reduced within the organisation.
  • We will provide an emergency response program with employees who have been trained to manage emergency situations.
  • Providing enough resources to ensure occupational health, safety and environment is a central part of our organisation.
  • Ensuring effective injury management and rehabilitation is provided to all employees.
  • Provision of adequate facilities for the welfare of employees.
