AGGA's Commitment to Industry Safety
Workplace safety is a very important issue within the glass and glazing industry.
As part of AGGA's commitment to industry safety, a Safety Sub Committee has been formed to work on the following three critical areas: legal compliance, glass industry specific requirements, and training.
The Committee's objective is "To ensure that the industry is as safe as it possibly can be."
The Committee meets quarterly and is continually developing a range of practical checklists, guidelines and other tools which can be downloaded for free from the links below.
If you have any questions or suggestions relating to safety in the glass and glazing industry, please contact us.
Increased demand for energy efficient glass products, more stringent regulations and standards relating to glass, as well as advances in technology – we understand it can be difficult to keep up with it all AND focus on actually running your own business!
As a member-based organisation, the AGGA represents glass manufacturers, suppliers, processers, wholesalers and importers. The AGGA offers a wide range of member benefits designed to make compliance with obligations easier and maximise your business’s competitiveness.
Glass Australia Magazine
We distill the information down to the key facts, the thinking behind the solutions, the 'need to' and ‘must know' information.
Glass Australia Magazine reaches glass processors, window fabricators and every registered glazier in Australia.
Our task is to illustrate the main benefits associated with the new way of thinking, new technology in glazing, the aesthetics, the marketability, comfort levels and improved productivity of occupants. This together with the energy efficiency message places improved glazing in a strong position.
AGGA accredited members are skilled tradespeople who undergo training and testing of their knowledge of the Australian Standard for Selection and Installation of Glass in Buildings (AS1288).
These installers are skilled tradespeople who have agreed to a set code of conduct and who have qualified to apply an AGGA certification label to any laminated safety glazing undertaken.
As an AGGA member, best practice is not a negotiation - it is the only option.
Australian Standards and their absolute adherence are essential to ensure the protection and safety of people living and working in residential and commercial buildings, driving cars, operating heavy machinery or commandeering boats.
