Health and safety
We are committed to providing all staff and affiliates with a work environment that is physically safe and psychologically supportive. We hold strongly to our vision of Zero Harm, in which we protect the environment and our people go home safely each day with a sense of pride and achievement.
Health, Safety and Sustainability is one of our CSIRO Values and we strive to embed environmental sustainability into our everyday business practices. Cultural and behavioural change is important to ensure we achieve our targets and reduce costs. Energy consumption, waste generation and diversion from landfill and procurement are areas where our people can incorporate sustainability in their day-to-day decision-making.
Our people and culture are fundamental to our current and future success in delivering positive impact for Australia and humanity. Guided by our Values, we seek to lift our capacity for innovation – providing the environment, facilities and opportunities our people need to work collaboratively and creatively.
