All personnel working for Trades Labour Hire have completed an online induction at Trades Labour Hire’s head office prior to starting at any site. This ensures that all personnel are compliant with the safety legislation of the state and meet clients’ expectations before they commence work at their sites. Our Safety and Health Management Systems have been accredited with AS/NZS 4801:2001 and OSHAS 18001:2007.
