Safety & Wellbeing
Improving wellbeing in our world
Right across Mirvac, HSE is woven into the fabric of our culture. Safety is fundamental to what we do, however our HSE vision encompasses much more than this. We recognise that health and wellbeing also have a crucial role to play within our business and across the broader community.
Through our HSE strategy and proactive initiatives, we’re working to set the benchmark for health, safety and wellbeing, within the property industry and beyond.
Launched in August 2017, Thrive at Mirvac is our business-wide HSE strategy. It establishes clear goals and principles that apply to the many facets of our operations – from the properties we create, to the communities we support.
With Thrive guiding our behaviours, we’re improving the safety and wellbeing of our people and places every single day.
A strong culture of safety
At Mirvac, keeping people safe is a must – whether they’re working on one of our sites, visiting one of our retail centres, or living in a community we’ve built. To ensure that we maintain the highest possible HSE standards across all of our properties, we’ve developed the Mirvac HSE Management System, which you can view here.
Simple and effective, this system sets out the basic standards we expect all of our people to adhere to when managing critical risks (these are known as the Mirvac Minimum Requirements, or MMRs). Outside of this, we empower people to manage risks using their own logic, experience and initiative.
Building better health & wellbeing
As a significant Australian placemaker and owner, Mirvac is in a unique position to positively influence people’s lives. Health and wellbeing are key considerations in all of our operations, from employee engagement to urban design.
Within our own workforce, we’ve introduced initiatives to help our people stay active, manage stress, and maintain a healthy work/life balance. Beyond that, we’re always looking for ways to improve wellbeing in the places where we operate, whether it’s by creating a community garden or addressing a social issue such as domestic violence. As the needs of Australians evolve, so does our approach to supporting their health and wellbeing.
Mirvac acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the Traditional Owners of the lands and waters of Australia, and we offer our respect to their Elders past and present.
