About us


Hazell Bros was founded in 1944 by brothers Donald and Rowley Hazell as a transport business operating in Southern Tasmania. In the 1950s, Hazell Bros became involved in earthmoving projects and by the 1970s a civil construction arm began. Over the next 30 years, the business continued to expand throughout Tasmania adding quarries, concrete batch plants, a commercial building business and a crane company to the portfolio. In 2010, Hazell Bros expanded into Victoria and Queensland acquiring civil construction and plant hire operations and in 2013, was awarded a long-term contract with Nyrstar Port Pirie (SA) for materials handling and dust suppression activities.

Our Commitment to Safety and Well-Being

There is nothing more important at Hazell Bros than having our workforce return home in a fit and healthy state at the end of every working day. "Safety 1st Always Works" is more than a slogan, it is the cornerstone of our safety culture.

Our employees are empowered and proactively encouraged to own safety and ensure safe outcomes through identifying hazards and managing risks. Key leaders of the business meet weekly at the Safety Forum to ensure emerging risks are managed and communicated across the whole business.

We also know caring for our employees' mental health is just as important as their physical health. Our Employee Assistance Program and Health & Well-being Program ensure all aspects of our employees’ well-being are cared for.
