Our policies are continually improving to ensure our processes remain current and compliant. View the latest information below and learn how our policies protect in a range of ways.
The safety of our staff is one of our highest priorities. Which is why we adhere to a management system that meets all requirements and standards. The result? A safe working environment with a culture of occupational health on all Viridian sites – wherever we are.
We believe that all injuries and occupational illnesses can be prevented. Our managers are held accountable for work health safety and environment performance, and all of our team are expected to take personal responsibility for their actions, as well as be involved in improvement initiatives and setting standards.
We have a common approach across the company for managing work health safety and environment. Viridian is required to implement these standards. We adhere to strict WHSE protocols for contractors as well as for employees to ensure the safety and well being of all people on Viridian sites.
We believe that to get the best results we need to involve the people that do the work in analysing risks and defining the best way of doing the work.

Sustainability is a big deal to us and is part of everything we do. We’re always looking to create more sustainable business practices and products. We take a look at the big picture, from manufacturing choices, to transportation, to waste management - and of course our products themselves are designed to build a more sustainable Australia.
In 2007 we made a commitment to the Victorian Environmental Protection Authority (the EPA) to greatly reduce the environmental effect of our operations in Australia. In putting our hands up to make this commitment, we became the very first manufacturer in the country to sign a sustainability covenant with the EPA. To live up to this promise we undertook a $130 million upgrade of our manufacturing site in Melbourne.
Another part of working to be more sustainable is avoiding the creation of waste – reducing packaging and inter-packing materials is an ongoing focus for us. Our glass production process uses a high percentage of recycled glass. Plus, you might be surprised to hear our glass also has a second life as a component of road paint and insulation.
Our agreement with the EPA isn’t just about our manufacturing processes but is also a commitment to the further development of products that reduce energy consumption, in turn decreasing CO2 emissions. Technological advancements mean that we now add coatings that increase solar and thermal performance – creating homes, office and other spaces that need less heating and cooling. Learn more about the energy performance of our glass.
We’re very proud that our efforts have earned us the Environmental Standard ISO 14001 certification, exceeding EPA standards. But we still want to do more, so watch this space!
We are committed to limiting the risk of modern slavery occurring within our own business, our supply chains or through any other business relationship.
