Good health and safety standards can only be achieved with the understanding and participation of all our members of staff. We recognize that giving responsibility to everyone is the most effective way of minimizing Health, Safety and Environmental risks.
This HSE policy shows us the kind of things which cause the more common accidents and harm to our employees and our contractors’ health. It applies to our work activities, and tells us how we can get more help and information. Getting hurt at work or becoming ill through work is not an acceptable norm in any organization. While the risk may not be completely removed, it can however be minimized through some basic thinking, training and acting pro-actively.
Implementing health and safety measures doesn’t have to be expensive, time consuming or complicated. Safer and more efficient working practices can often save money but, more importantly, they can help to save lives.
