NEXTDC consider workplace health and safety (WHS) and incident prevention to be of utmost importance and vital to the ultimate success of our organisation. We are committed to providing and maintaining a safe and healthy working environment for all workers, customers and visitors.
People come first, and we are passionate about keeping safety front of mind and adopting safety excellence as an imperative. Our culture – supported by our corporate values – embraces the concept that safety is everyone’s responsibility:
Safety is the first priority at NEXTDC offices, data centres and project sites. We have a safety management system that has been tailor made for NEXTDC’s business and the unique hazards and processes associated with operating industry-leading data centre facilities.
We undertake a number of activities across our Operational and Development portfolios to ensure that effective safety performance is achieved at all levels of our organisation: from conception and design, through building, to operation and consideration of end-of-life management.
To administer and continuously improve our safety standing, NEXTDC have a dedicated in-house WHS team who oversee both Operational and Development activities. The WHS team works closely with other NEXTDC staff, customers, suppliers and contractors to ensure we are providing the safest work environment we can on a daily basis.
Effective safety performance is an ever rising bar, but Zero injuries is NEXTDC’s aspirational goal. We track and monitor more than simple incident tallies orTotal Recordable Injury Rates, with a number of lag and leading indicators reported on across our business to assist in our push for innovation and continuous improvement.
The day-to-day management of the operational and development programs is coordinated and implemented by our internal WHS team; working closely with our department heads and construction partners to extract the best performance from our collective teams.
The health and safety of our people, customers, partners and suppliers is something we will not compromise. We’re committed to ensuring our facilities and construction sites are as safe as possible.
