Indigenous Engagement

Indigenous Engagement

At Bunzl Safety and Lifting we recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the Traditional Owners of the land on which we operate and the communities we serve. Our goal is to build meaningful working relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities more broadly.

Reconciliation Action Plan

Bunzl has a formal Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) lodged with Reconciliation Australia (RA).  It commits Bunzl to Indigenous supplier diversity (through design, manufacturing and supply partnerships) as well as inclusive Indigenous employment targets.

Partnership With Indigenous Workwear Supplier

Bunzl Safety and Lifting has a formal license agreement with Indigenous workwear company, Cole Workwear to supply Boomerang workwear and PPE within the Industrial Safety space.

The agreement between Bunzl Safety and Lifting and Cole Workwear formalises an existing ten-year relationship between the two businesses and will not only assist the company to provide jobs for indigenous workers in an under-represented sector, but will aid Cole Workwear’s commitment to supporting the local Noongar community through its sport and youth development programs.
