HEALTH, SAFETY AND ENVIRONMENT

OUR PERSONNEL ARE PROPERLY INDUCTED ONTO YOUR SITE, AND THEY RECEIVE SPECIFIC HEALTH, SAFETY AND ENVIRONMENTAL TRAINING

WE WORK WITH THE LOCAL ENVIRONMENT TO MINIMISE PEST ACTIVITY

The harsh pesticides and extermination methods of the past have given way to safer, more natural pest controls and more environmentally sustainable methods for maintaining healthy, pest-free homes and workplaces.

HEALTH, SAFETY AND ENVIRONMENTAL DOCUMENTATION

A Health, Safety and Environmental Management Systems Booklets are installed on all sites.

The Booklet outlines our systems and includes:

  • Health and Safety and Environmental Policies
  • Site Induction Register
  • Risk Hazards and Controls of our services
  • Hazardous Goods and Controls
  • Site Specific / Customer Provided Hazards and Controls
  • Material Safety Data Sheets of chemicals used
  • Pest Sighting Logs
  • Pest Service Records and Agreements
  • Pesticide Application Logs

INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT

Integrated Pest Management forms the basis of our approach to natural pest control. IPM is not a single pest control method but, rather, a series of pest management evaluations, decisions and controls.

This educated and humane process can be used to manage all types of pests in all types of environments — rural, urban and agricultural – by combining methods such as controlling access, limiting food, and humane trapping.

This eliminates reliance on costly and toxic pesticides for the long-term mitigation of pests, making your workplace safer and healthier for you and your staff.

SAFE CHEMICALS AND SAFE PRACTICES

What chemicals we do use are never stored on site, minimising the risk of accidents and exposure and maximising the health and safety of your personnel, your customers, and the general public.

All of our technicians are trained in safe handling practices and carry Approved Handlers Certificates issued by the Environmental Protection Authority. All chemicals are approved for use in New Zealand and Australia.

Material Safety Data Sheets for all chemicals in our possession are always in your possession. A Spill Response Plan is also part of the PestNZ Documentation package.
