Civil Sydney Employees are all trained to the highest industry standards and maintain relevant competencies and High Risk Licences for appropriate equipment and plant used onsite and all Civil Sydney staff are first aid trained with first aid kits carried in all plant and site vehicles.
Along with safety, we take our responsibility towards the environment very seriously and can offer our clients:
- Sediment control tanks for the treatment of groundwater generated during piling operations
- Sediment control curtains for use in marine environments
- Plant with biodegradable hydraulic oil when working over or near water

Civil Sydney maintains PileSafe certification on all our piling Rigs although not mandatory in all states. The PileSafe green sticker works in the same way as the CraneSafe sticker does for crane owners Australia wide. Holding this certification is required across many major construction companies and considered to be an industry ‘best practice’ standard.
With piling rigs being major plant items as are cranes they are required to undergo an independent inspection every 12 months by an accredited, third party assessor. This inspection ensuring all rigs are structurally and operationally sound for use.
