Good health, safety and environmental performance is critical to the success of Atmei Construction’s business. This is reflected in measurable targets within our business operations.
Successful implementation of an HSE plan includes establishing appropriate management systems to address HSE issues with a view to minimizing risk and ensuring continual improvement. This will be supported by:
- ensuring compliance with all appropriate quality standards;
- integrating SHE issues into all aspects of the organization;
- determining, managing, and measuring the SHE impacts of our activities;
- monitoring, managing, and reporting incidents, accidents, and events;
- setting and reviewing SHE performance targets;
- ensuring that compliance audits are conducted;
- ensuring the thorough investigation of accidents and incidents and taking appropriate corrective actions in case of deviations to prevent recurrence of similar incidents;
- researching and instituting ways to improve SHE operations and impacts; including environmental and safety considerations in procurement processes; reporting on performance in terms of this policy;
- benchmarking performance against other utilities.
Complying with all legislative and policy requirements and, in the absence of appropriate principles, setting standards to meet the objectives of this policy will be supported by:
- ensuring that all legally required occupational health and safety and environmental factors and modern practices are taken into account in the design, construction, operation, and maintenance of all plant, machinery, equipment, and places of work;
- ensuring that the required statutory appointments are in place and that these appointees fulfil their duties in terms of the relevant legislation and standards
Educating, training, motivating, and developing its employees about safety, occupational health, and environment issues will be supported by:
- ensuring that employees are aware of safety, occupational health, and environmental standards, rules, procedures, regulations, codes, and guidelines;
- communicating on lessons learnt from incidents from a SHE perspective and revising procedures or policy where appropriate;
- encouraging staff to develop a sense of SHE responsibility; and
- giving due recognition to individuals and business units for exemplary occupational health, safety, and environmental performance.
