Zero Harm Culture
Our aim is to ensure every employee gets home safely, via our Zero Harm programme. This programme has been in place since 2010.
All staff are involved in the health and safety programme. This includes each staff member stating how they are maintaining and working towards a Zero Harm culture in their personal development plans through to participating in staff-wide education campaigns.
The company’s efforts were rewarded when outgoing Managing Director, George Adams, was awarded the inaugural Business Leaders’ Health & Safety Forum Leader of the Year Award at the NZ Workplace Safety Awards in May 2013.
In 2012 we became a signatory to the UN Women’s Empowerment Principles. We are dedicated to furthering understanding and living these seven principles which are:
- Establish high-level corporate leadership for gender equality
- Fair treatment of all women and men at work – respect and support human rights and non-discrimination
- Ensure the health, safety and well-being of all women and men workers
- Promote education, training and professional development for women
- Implement enterprise development, supply chain and marketing practices that empower women
- Promote equality through community initiatives and advocacy
- Measure and publicly report on progress to achieve gender equality
We have an active wellbeing programme for our staff, which ranges from offering the flu vaccination to keep staff healthy in winter through to encouraging boot camp style work out programmes to get our bodies moving.
The three pillars that make up our programme are Belong, Balance and Believe.
Belong is about the organisational factors enhancing wellbeing such as leadership, employee engagement and recognition.
Balance is about achieving balance, through assessment, awareness and adjustment for both the individual and the company.
Believe is about making sustainable changes, through empowerment, resilience and evolution. Read more about working at CCANZ here.
