Our EHS Policy guides all or activities and projects

Implementation

  • The policy and procedures are presented to all staff, with focus on systematic training as the key to a safe working environment.
  • Risk, damage and human injury are minimised through effective communications, risk assessment and compliance with laws and rules.
  • Thorough investigations to identify the causes of incidents and accidents enable us to learn lessons and take appropriate measures to reduce risk.
  • Experience, knowledge and professionalism must be the basis of contingency planning and responding appropriately to any safety incident or accident.
  • Safety is not a private concern. We seek to participate in safety co-operation on a broad front, both domestically and abroad. In particular, an effort is made to disseminate information on effective methodologies and means.
  • Implementing the international occupational health and safety management standard OHSAS 18001 forms part of our efforts to ensure safe working procedures through a quality-management approach. The OHSAS standard also provides for periodic reviews based on staff’s experience and their real working conditions.
  • Our EHS Policy serves as a guideline for all co-operative projects under our direction. Our partners in such co-operation are required to work methodically on their safety issues, and we will be prepared to share our experience in occupational health and safety.
