Health safety and environmental management

We’re proud to have the best approach to health, safety and environmental management (HSE) in the New Zealand industry and work to achieve the highest international standards regardless of country or location. Over the last five years we’ve driven huge improvements in this area, driven by our goal of ‘no injuries or harm to anyone’. It’s one of the things that helps us attract and retain the best people.


Working internationally we comply fully with the laws and regulations in each country. In addition, we follow MB Century’s own HSE Management Systems and Policy framework. This is based on the Australian, New Zealand Standard (ASNZ 4801). This is a recognised and highly regarded OH&S management system that supplements the legal requirements and meets the following Standards:

  • International Standard OHSAS – 18001 Occupational Health & Safety Management Systems
  • ASNZ Standard - 4360 - Risk Management
  • ASNZ Standard - 9001 - Quality Management Systems & ISO9001 – 2015
  • ASNZ Standard - 14001 – Environmental Management Systems & ISO 14001


We conduct regular internal and external audits of our HSE processes and always look to proactively work beyond mere compliance. We also engage with our customers in ongoing dialogue to ensure HSE is always front of mind and that no issues or opportunities to improve are being missed.
