Kardan is always looking to find new ways to achieve impactful social outcomes and our community involvement continues to grow. For us, that extends to championing Aboriginal sole traders and subcontractors, with Kardan contracts, which subsequently open up yet more pathways in construction for Aboriginal people.
The Kardan Way involves close collaboration with other contractors too (Wilco Electrical, Legacy Construction, etc.) Supporting over-55s, Women in Construction, and a great number of Community Groups, such as Art Vs Depression, FISH, WADE, LOOP, and other Aboriginal partner businesses, e.g. Moorditj Painting. More on this below.
As of Dec 2020, 13 Aboriginal apprenticeships, 6 traineeships, and 3 trade assistant positions were created – as part of Kardan’s pledge to create security (and jobs) for Aboriginal people and to reap benefits for WA.
Beyond the creation of employment opportunities, extending to how we foster and consistently nurture Company (and Indigenous) culture/s – respecting spirit and mind remains critical to delivering meaningful skill-based outcomes.
Frank and Kardan Execs thank those who helped us generate this social capital success. Without this ongoing support, from valued partners, customers, our own proactive team, and the wider Kardan community – we would not be where we are today.
Serious about Safety.
Kardan takes its responsibility to protect the wellbeing, health, and safety of our teams very seriously – planning for, and considering aspects of their constant exposure to high-risk environments, and workplace dangers.
This all starts with the strictest safety protocols, training, and compliance. Safe work methods, risk mitigation, site security, and emergency management. Extending to Induction training, use of best PPE, clear and visible site signage, along with specific safety principles pertaining to the environmental conditions of the day.
All our team understands that Construction Safety certainly doesn’t just end, once our project is complete and workers have gone home.
