At TasBGAS, it is our job to ensure our apprentices, trainees, and staff

  • Enjoy a safe and healthy workplace
  • Work in safe systems of supervised work
  • Only use plant, equipment and substances which are provided in a continually safe and operable condition
  • Have access to up to date and relevant safety information for apprentices and trainees
  • Receive a thorough Induction and Orientation program
  • Receive on-going support, including regular site visits by their Field Officer
TasBGAS conduct thorough risk assessments on worksites prior to placing employees on-site as well as completing an annual review with each Host employer. We work closely with our Host Employers to explore practical solutions, and implement safety measures where required to ensure our employees are working in a safe work environment.

TasBGAS encourages all its employees to report hazards, no matter how insignificant they seem, as we believe safety is everybody’s responsibility. It is an expectation that every TasBGAS staff member, apprentice, trainee, labour hire employee and Host Company should contribute to ensuring a safer working environment.

Our aim is to ensure all employees go home to their families and loved ones at the end of their work day – happy and healthy!
