Keeping safety a priority in a high risk industry
NA employees generally work at night on road maintenance, when traffic is quieter, but this also leads to lower visibility. Joshua Philpott, NA Group Safety Officer, says there is the constant threat of danger on a roadworks site. The workers always need to be aware of their surroundings and have extra precautions in place. NA barricades the work zone, pays close attention to traffic control, and uses radio communication for reversing traffic. There are a lot of aspects that go into a safe work site, and it’s difficult to keep them all in mind each day, which is where iAuditor helps. NA Group Director, Nick Argyropoulos, has always believed in the importance of safety, highlighted by the company’s win in the 2012 WorkCover NSW SafeWork Awards for best workplace health and safety practices in a small business.
