A safe, healthy workplace for everyone, every day

Our commitment

Home Safely Every DayWe see health and safety as our licence to operate.  We’re committed to a safe working environment at all times for all our people and stakeholders involved in our operations, to ensure that everyone goes “home safely, every day”.


C3 complies with all statutory regulations arising from the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 (HSWA) and its standards, obligations and requirements.  Our teams are acutely aware of their duties under the HSWA and understand the requirements as a Person Conducting a Business or Undertaking (PCBU).

Training and education

Training and education of all our people is critical in achieving better health and safety outcomes.  C3 has a substantial investment in safety with a focus on training, education and competence.  Everyone at C3 completes a safety induction and receives regular ongoing training.

Our dedicated Health and Safety team partner with our operations to help implement and maintain effective controls as well as providing advice, coaching and support.

Risk management

It’s a company-wide responsibility that involves everyone at every level, from office to warehouse, to ship side.

We do all we can to identify and manage risk, which includes incident reporting and investigation of all significant incidents, injuries and near misses.  We also conduct regular audits, inspections, safety engagements, toolbox talks and pre-start meetings.

Port Health and Safety Fatigue Risk Management Guidelines

The Port Health and Safety Leadership Group, of which our CEO, Gavin Hudson, is a member – published detailed guidelines for setting up a fatigue risk management system on 5 December 2022.  C3 Limited is committed to using these guidelines as a reference tool during our journey to formulate our plan to mitigate the risk of fatigue in our organisation.  We are, together with the consultation of our employees, designing the C3 system criteria to manage the risk of fatigue within our organisation.

Code of Practice for the Ports of Auckland

The Port Health and Safety Leadership Group continues developing guides to improve port safety. Their latest contribution to the sector is the Managing Risks in Stevedoring Code of Practice for the Ports of Auckland.

The Stevedoring Code of Practice has been developed by Ports of Auckland Limited (POAL), Maritime Union of New Zealand (MUNZ), Wallace Investments, and C3. The code is based on the Safe Work Australia document ‘Managing risks in Stevedoring Code of Practice’. The code has been amended to include specific terminology and operational requirements for the New Zealand port environment.

Throughout this document, references are made to other supporting documents from Worksafe New Zealand and Maritime New Zealand.
