We manage our operational activities to ensure that all impacts, whether on the biophysical or socioeconomic environment, are reduced to acceptable limits. Our operations are governed by applicable national legislative and regulatory frameworks and controlled by way of an integrated HSE management system.
The structure of the HSE management system generally follows the layout of common international standards such as the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) 14001 (Environment), ISO 9001 (Quality) and the Occupational Health and Safety Advisory series (OHSAS) of British Standard (BS) 18001.
The HSE management system is designed to assist achievement our goals, which include our legal obligations.
This systematic approach to management performance promotes the most effcient use of resources. The system also offers the company potential fnancial gain, which supports a win-win situation in terms of HSE and business performance.
An auditing programme periodically evaluates the effectiveness of the HSE management system. All potential impacts are listed on a risk register with related mitigating and operational controls.
We proudly maintained our certifcation for ISO 14001:2004 in 2016.
Critical risks are identified on a signboard for a specific work area. Critical controls are put in place (eg alarm systems; handling requirements; access control; isolation and lockout, etc) to allow workers to work safely in the various areas.
