Howard & Sons Pyrotechnics: Leading the way in pyrotechnics and fireworks safety throughout Australia

Throughout our 96-year history, Howard & Sons Pyrotechnics has work closely with various national government authorities towards the improvement of safety standards and procedures within the pyrotechnics industry for the benefit of pyrotechnicians and the greater community.

SafeWork Australia manages workplace safety throughout Australia.

Howard & Sons Pyrotechnics follow current SafeWork emergency procedure guidelines in every manufacturing and storage facility, during transportation of our fireworks and equipment, and at events where we consult with the event manager and share the event’s emergency plan in open communication with our on-site pyrotechnicians. We also follow work health and safety laws.

We have existing emergency plans which have been tested for efficiency in various scenarios. All of our staff undergoes regular emergency plan practice sessions.

The Howard & Sons Pyrotechnics emergency plan has been drawn up under the guidance of the Managing the Work Environment and Facilities code of practice. This states that an emergency plan should include:

  • an effective response to an emergency
  • evacuation methods
  • the notifying of emergency services at the earliest opportunity
  • medical treatment and assistance plans
  • effective communication methods within workplace
  • how often the emergency procedures are to be tested
  • instruction and training about implementing the emergency procedures.

Howard & Sons Pyrotechnics fully meets these requirements in every one of its facilities and locations throughout Australia.
