Safety is a big part of MITE, especially considering that some of our workers are family members, we have a belief that all of our employees are entitled to return home safe. Our safety management system has been steadily developed over the course of being in business, utilising the family’s experiences and working closely with Tier 1 contractors to maintain and develop out system to meet the current standards. We have done extensive work with site safety officers and safety managers to lift our documentation to acceptable levels in all required fields.

 

Environment Management system

Our EMP has been signed off by RPEQ engineers for use across many of our sites when required.
