Tasmanian Irrigation has an ongoing and unwavering commitment to zero harm in the workplace and regularly updates its Safety Strategy, Workplace Health and Safety Policy, and Workplace Health and Safety Risk Register.

As Scheme Operators, it is essential that we take a moment to consider each job to ensure we are completing the task in the most efficient and safe manner. An extra moment to plan can prevent accidents and save lives.
Geoff Young, Tasmanian Irrigation South East Scheme Operator

The five key pillars of Tasmanian Irrigation’s Safety Strategy include

Visible aligned leadership, engaged and capable people

Risks eliminated or controlled

Systems that support safe work

Operational excellence

Fair, just and learning culture

Tasmanian Irrigation’s employees and contractors have adopted a positive and proactive approach to identifying, minimising and managing risks to ensure day-to-day work tasks are carried out in a safe manner.

Representatives from all Tasmanian Irrigation business units have formed a Health and Safety Representative Committee to assist and advise management on key safety issues.

The Committee quickly made a significant impact, providing an effective platform for consultation about safety and ensuring practical and workable solutions are put in place.

Tasmanian Irrigation empowers all employees, contractors and stakeholders to call out any unsafe behaviour and proactively mitigate the risks to minimise the potential for harm.
