Health & Safety Compliance
Tubman Heating Limited provides our technical expertise in heating systems to our customers, along with a commitment to safety, quality and the environment.

“We must remember that the safest way is the most economic way in the long run. Taking shortcuts benefits no one, not the employee taking the risk or the employer. We must also ensure we don’t go overboard and stifle ourselves with unnecessary rules and equipment. All of our decisions must ultimately be based on risk.” – Kevin Prosser, Health, Safety & Compliance Officer

5-Star Rated Health & Safety Management Systems
Job Safety Analysis
A Job Safety Analysis is a brief description of the steps taken to carryout a task, the hazards/risks present and the control measures to minimise the risk. JSA’s with environmental risk are called JSEA’s. The purpose of these documents is to ensure employees can work safely
A similar document is the Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) used in high risk construction activities.
JSA’s are normally done by staff on arrival at the customer / work site, while a SWM’s are normally submitted as part of Safety Plan and approval is given before commencing work.
Regular Health & Safety Reviews
Health and Safety meetings bring together workers and management to develop and review health safety policies and procedures for the workplace. At THL these H & S meetings are held every 6 weeks, with our Auckland, Waikato and BOP meetings held separately to Wellington’s. Each meeting includes all employees other than those on leave or at an urgent task. No jobs are scheduled for the day the meeting is held.
The H & S meeting covers everything from monthly health and safety statistics, incidences which have occurred, new legislation and issues from staff. The meeting is fully documented and the minutes are not approved until done so by staff at the next meeting.
Safety Planning - Toolbox Talks
Toolbox talks are meetings held primarily by the workers to discuss the work to be done that particular day and to have an opportunity to discuss any new hazards or changes to the JSA.
THL requires a Toolbox Talk to take place at any task where there are two or more staff present. The Toolbox Talk must be documented.
“Toolbox talks help keep our team on the same page when working a job, especially if you have joined the job after it has started.” Earl G, Senior Service Technician
THL provides ongoing training for our technicians to support them in doing their jobs safely and responsibly. Relevant employees are kept up-to-date on the following courses:
- Site Safe
- Supervisor Site Safe
- Confined Spaces

- First Aid
Health and Safety Training Series:
Safety of Our Team Members is Top Priority
Employee safety is a top priority for THL. Due to the type of work carried out by our technicians it is important that our employees have first aid and emergency aid readily available for them. All our field staff are first aid trained, we have an AED on site in our Auckland Head Office and first aid kits and fire extinguishers are in all technician’s vehicles, which are routinely checked and updated.
Our workshop’s and client sites are audited to test our systems, to ensure we are providing a safe working environment for all our employees.
Sustainable Solutions & How We Work
Environmental issues are discussed at the H & S 6 weekly meeting. With an increased focus by the New Zealand Government on climate change and other environmental issues it is important for Tubman Heating Limited to address sustainability internally and for our customers.
