HSE Policy

We are committed to ensuring our people thrive and everyone goes home safely, every day.

Everyone individually in the group is accountable for working safely, looking out for the safety and wellbeing of those around us and minimising our impact on the environment.

XRF Scientific complies with all applicable laws and regulations and has a framework for managing the health and safety of our employees and our environmental impact.

HSE is a shared responsibility, requiring the active commitment and participation of all our employees. We have a continual improvement process with the aim of eliminating work related injuries, illness, and environmental pollution.

The fundamentals of this policy

  • Demonstrate HSE leadership at all levels through visible, proactive and vigilant behaviours
  • Build a culture where positive HSE habits and interventions are regularly recognised, rewarded and reinforced
  • Work hard to ensure everyone understands their HSE responsibilities and accountabilities, including management of this policy. This policy should be placed on the group’s website and visible areas of our premises for employees, clients, and partners to view
  • Focus on individual and team wellbeing, and recognise and manage work‑related stress and other psychosocial risks

Putting the policy into action

  • Minimise any adverse effects on our environment

  • Create an environment where our people and others feel truly supported and empowered to speak up and stop unsafe work
  • Support the management of injuries and illnesses through early intervention, rehabilitation and return to work programs
