Health & Safety

Care for people is imperative

Safe, healthy and inclusive workplaces are integral to the way we do business, our productivity and success – for our people, the people who work throughout our supply chains and the communities in which we operate.

We take our responsibilities in the area of health and safety very seriously. The safety and health of people is paramount, as is our commitment to trust, respect and teamwork in our workplaces.

BlueScope HSEC Policy - June 2019


BlueScope has a long and proud history of health and safety management. Our solid foundations have built employee trust through visible leadership and workforce engagement. We recognise that spending time interacting with our employees is critical, as is improving the capability of our leaders. This approach, supported by integrated HSE management systems and defined risk control practices, has helped significantly reduce our instances of serious injury and near misses.

We have a comprehensive company-wide Occupational Health and Safety Management System in place . Its purpose is to ensure the health and safety of our employees, customers, contractors, visitors and the public.

We are enhancing our safety, health, and wellbeing through developing our employees, encouraging participation and collaboration, building on our risk-based management foundations and focusing on continuously strengthening our controls.

BlueScope has collaborated with industry partners in consultation with WorkSafe Victoria to ensure safer loading practices. Together, we have developed a Guideline and Video available on our TV BlueScope youtube channel for the safe use of Maxibinder Chain Tensioners. 

This is just one example of our commitment to health and safety. More more examples can be found in BlueScope News and in our Sustainability Reporting Suite.
