Social Procurement

Rachel McCann Crane Operator

Our strategy

As a company committed to making a positive impact in our community, we recognise that our purchasing decisions have the power to drive change and create meaningful social and environmental outcomes.

Our social procurement strategy is rooted in our values of sustainability, diversity, and inclusion. We believe that by leveraging our purchasing power, we can contribute to building a more just and equitable society while also supporting local economies and protecting the environment.

Our social procurement strategy is not just a one-time initiative, but an ongoing commitment to making a positive impact through our procurement practices.

Increasing safety and reducing psychological injuries

Associated Rigging prioritises safety and wellbeing by minimising psychosocial risks and promoting general and mental health. Our ethos emphasises empowering individuals to improve their physical and mental health through healthy lifestyles, personal development, and addressing non-work-related factors.


We foster a psychologically healthy workplace through initiatives such as an Employee Assistance Program (EAP), promoting mental health services, participating in mental health programs like Bluehats, implementing policies, providing comprehensive training, hosting engaging social events, and offering flexible working arrangements. These strategies aim to enhance employee wellbeing and encourage reporting of psychosocial hazards and accessing counselling services in the crane hire industry.
