The Cottage Occupational Health and Safety policy is a statement endorsed by senior management that expresses the company’s commitment and intent to manage its operations in a safe and responsible manner and comply with current OH&S legislation.

The policy also provides a vehicle to inform its employees, suppliers, clients and other interested parties that a commitment to Occupational Health & Safety is integral to how the company ocnudcts its business.

The Cottage’s attitude to Occupational health Safety and Rehabilitation is reflected in the Company’s Health and Safety Policy.
The Cottage OHS Management System has been applied to all food manufacturing and the aim is to ensure consistency regarding compliance with safety legislation and to maximize safety outcomes through structured safety training of personnel, risk assessment, inspections monitoring and audits.

Audits and Inspections
Workplace inspections are conducted in various ways including: safety committee inspections, supervisor weekly inspections, Project Management inspections, etc.

The safety committee conducts a workplace inspection on all outgoing orders.
Random inspections are undertaken by the Food Authority of NSW and the local council to ensure our food manufacturing is carried out according to food safety regulations.

This is achieved through the implementation of on site induction and training programs.
