Property Development – Health and Safety

Challenges

Goodman Property Group is in the position of developing, managing and maintaining the numerous properties in their portfolio.

They recognised a long time ago the issues surrounding this process as there are many stakeholders coming together for varied tasks, from asset construction, maintenance, security, customer’s employees and members of the public.

Goodman realised that without a robust health and safety culture in place across all of these areas the risk expands from just physical forms of hazards through to actions from one group creating a risk to others.

Then there are the R&M contractors that come to sites, how do we protect everybody form those activities

The key was to combine strategies where this potential arises and monitor those initiatives
