Duty of Care


With increasing scrutiny by Local Government, Workcover, EPA etc it is imperative for all fibreglass manufactures to maintain the highest standards of environmental awareness. We are consistently conscious of our obligations to staff under OH&S, neighbours and the environment under EPA, Workcover (Dangerous Goods) and other environmental legislation. In this like many others industries failure to observe good environmental work practices in all areas can result in loss of approvals for production. For customers expecting reliable production and delivery the responsibility is on suppliers to provide sustainable compliance.

Ryman Composites is committed to providing a safe work environment for its employees, site visitors and neighbours. We will do this by undertaking continual review of processes and materials to control risks, provide training and consult with all stakeholders to ensure a safe workplace.
