Environment

UEA strives to meet and exceed all client and Government environmental expectations and requirements. Environmental responsibility plays a major role in the day to day operations of the business whilst ensuring that the industries remain sustainable.

Our project management teams are well aware of their environmental obligations and each project has specific environmental management plans developed ensuring the site complies. UEA continually assesses its daily operations and looks at ways of reducing or nullifying the impact on the environment – whether this be by introducing new equipment for recycling or undertaking specific training programs.

Further evidence of our commitment is provided by our third party accreditation to AS/NZS ISO 14001: 2004, the international standard for Environmental Management Systems. This sets the benchmark for assessing and managing risks, implementing control measures, auditing, training and reporting and is currently maintained across the Trenchless, Electrical and Communications divisions.

Before work commences on any project we work with our clients, their stakeholders and the relevant authorities to assess, mitigate and document the environmental risks. These risks are then communicated to our work force through the induction process or regular tool box meeting.
