The international infrastructure company confirmed it joined the initiative in order to further improve workplace health and safety.

In signing-up, GRT has committed to achieving a positive workplace health and safety culture across its Australian operations and will seek to replicate this culture throughout its international arm.

“GRT is committed to creating a workplace environment where health and safety is at the core of our everyday operations,” GRT chief operating officer Herman Allison said.

“As part of this process we have become signatories to the ZHAWLP initiative to aid us in our goal of linking the business and its safety programs, making sure that the effort to enhance and implement safe practices within our workplace is an ongoing one.”

The announcement coincides with the firm establishing a new global manufacturing hub in Yatala, Queensland, where it will centralise production for its range of soil stabilisation and dust suppression products.

GRT research and development head Dr Babak (Mojtaba) Abtahi said the Yatala hub would allow the firm to enhance its portfolio of environmentally friendly dust suppression and soil stabilisation products.

“Our goal at GRT is to be seen as the industry leader in the field of instant infrastructure and lead the development of products in road and soil stabilisation, in addition to dust suppression and control systems,” he said.

“We are currently working on a number of new products and are always enhancing and looking to better our existing ones, to ensure that we supply our clients with the best possible solution when constructing long-term infrastructure, or creating temporary access roads for access to sites.”
