We are absolutely committed to ensuring the safety of our employees, business partners and communities. We continuously strive to undertake our business activities with absolutely no accidents, no harm to people, and no harm to the environment. We are also committed to continuously improving our energy performance.
In endeavoring to achieve this aspiration, we have developed and implemented a Safety, Quality and Environmental Management System (SQEMS), based on our longstanding experience and on industry best practice.
How we create a safe working environment
We operate our SQEMS according to the following principles:
- Every single employee, at every level, is bound by our SQEMS.
- All company employees and contractors must: adopt safe work practices; comply with Health, Safety, Security, Quality, Energy and Environmental policies and procedures; and report hazards and unsafe work practices. We actively encourage such approaches.
- All company employees and contractors are authorized and obliged to stop work whenever they consider it unsafe.
- We strive to create and maintain a culture where all employees support this core commitment to safety as a first priority.
- We ensure all employees are provided with adequate information and instructions on our health, safety, security, energy and environmental policies and procedures.
- We develop and implement training programs to improve our employees’ skills and knowledge about health, safety, energy efficiency and the way we need to work.
- We provide our employees with appropriate equipment and facilities to undertake their work in a safe, efficient and professional manner.
- We protect our people, our principals’ assets, and our clients’ interests from threats to their security by implementing appropriate security countermeasures.
- We proactively undertake integrated efforts to improve the energy efficiency of our activities and to respect and protect the environment in which we operate.
- We monitor our performance on an ongoing basis via Safety, Quality and Environmental Key Performance Indicators.
