The Safety of our Learners is Always our Highest Priority.
Our programs are designed and structured to ensure the safety of our learners at all times as well as other road users.
Learners develop their skills and experience in a safe, secure and supportive environment which is conducive to building confidence on our roads.
Our programs have been developed using the latest evidence based research from the Australasian College of Road Safety and their stakeholder partners.
In Gear Australia operates its programs and services within a documented OH&S Policy and Procedure Framework that is consistent with AS 4801:2001.
All our policies and procedures are reviewed by our Health and Safety Officer at a minimum annually, in line with our structured internal review and audit process.
As a result of our internal reviews, any Continuous Improvement identified is recorded in our Business Improvement Register and closed out when successfully implemented.
In Gear Australia measures and monitors its HSE statistics to ensure it uses practices that maintain the highest standards of safety for its clients, employees and other road users.
