This includes ensuring that no person commences or continues to work if it is known that they are not fit for work. We recognise that health and safety performance may be influenced by a range of factors, including fatigue, psychological stress, illness and the use of medication, illicit drugs and alcohol.
To maintain and improve the lifestyle, fitness, health and safety of all employees and contractors through promoting well-being and ensuring employee fitness for work.
