Safety is a high priority in the glazing industry. To counter the inherent dangers of dealing with broken glass, Express Glass have applied innovation, initiative and our own experience in developing safe work systems.

  • Roles and Responsibilities of individuals

  • Consultation with workers on health and safety issues

  • Training, education and supervision

  • Site specific job safety analysis and safe work method statement for every job

  • Identification of workplace hazards

  • Workplace inspections and checklists

  • Hazard risk assessment

  • Hazard control and treatment plans

  • Record keeping
  • Program maintenance and review procedures

 

Australian glass & glazing standards

 

At Express Glass we keep our glazing standards and practices current to the Australian code of standards. All glass replaced by Express Glass is kept in accordance with Australian glass and glazing standards (AS1288). Express Glass have a "duty of care" policy, meaning that if we see a glass panel at a site that is not complaint to the current standards, we will inform the parties involved and offer measures to bring the window, door or shop front up to the current glazing standards.

 

Glass safety Audits

Glass safety audits are an extra service we offer to our clients as part of our tailored glass service package. Our glaziers are accredited by the Australian Glass and Glazing association which means they are able to conduct glass safety audits on your building. This process can identify any dangerous glass or potentially hazardous glass threats in the future and offer solutions to eliminate those threats.
