Dangerous Goods (DG)


Similar to the old Dangerous Goods Licence. If you hold very flammable substances or oxidising substances at your facility and they exceed the amounts set down in the legislation, you will need a Location Test Certificate and a Test Certifier will need to visit your facility to issue it. There are some limitations and exceptions to this but these apply mainly to flammable substances stored on farms and to exempt laboratories.

First Aid Certified

Certified First Aiders are persons who are trained and certified in “First Response” to anybody who is injured or falls sick – particularly in the workplace, and for an employer to have these persons on-site is seen as part of their responsibility in taking “all practicable steps to provide first aid facilities” under the Health and Safety in Employment Act 1992 (HSE Act). SCS currently has a ratio of 1:20 for “First Aiders” to Staff on-site.

Health & Safety - Accreditation

The ACC Workplace Safety Management Practices (WSMP) programme is a three tier process designed to reward medium / large businesses who continue to strengthen their workplace health and safety systems and practices on successful achievement of a level / tier – and earn discounts on the ACC work related component of its levies.


The programme recognizes that workplace injuries have significant and far-reaching costs and impacts. For the business, they can mean disruptions, lost productivity and profits, absenteeism, the need to find (and sometimes train) replacement staff, and official investigations.

SCS’s dedication to workplace H&S has enabled it to achieve secondary level accreditation – a level that has secured a 15% discount on ACC premiums over the next 24 months, and is enjoyed only by around 1000 other companies nationwide.

  • This level of accreditation is accomplished through successfully implementing strategies aimed at achieving extensive employee “buy-in” into the companies H&S systems and practices and displayed through high levels of employee compliance and participation in H&S policy, system and practice.

This continued dedication to H&S has now seen SCS poised to consider taking the next steps to achieve Tertiary Level accreditation on it’s next audit – a level that is seen as the pinnacle of H&S compliance and only attained by a select handful of companies in the country.

  • Achieving this level of compliance is an extremely intensive process and as opposed to the driver of the Secondary Level process being predominantly achieved through employee buy-in – this level is a management driven process with extensive effort required around developing strategies aimed at displaying management attitudes to H&S policy as seriously founded and focused on a “continual improvement framework across all aspects of workplace health and safety management”.
