Safety Standards in Construction Industry
Health and safety in construction is not a matter to be taken lightly. Despite the hazardous nature of the industry, construction can be a safe occupation when workers are aware of the dangers and an effective safety program is implemented.
We take necessary steps to provide workplace safety standards and regulations to ensure safe working environment for our construction workers, and coordinates with other regulatory agencies on the implementation and enforcement of major construction laws and requirements. To enable us to do this, we operate a robust Health, Safety and Environmental management system, which is evaluated for continual improvement in accordance with MS 1722:2011 and OHSAS 18001:2007.
A properly performing safety management system will typically include:
- Identification of all safety hazards relating to the company’s activities and assessment of the risk associated with each hazard
- Risk management procedures to keep risk from hazards down to acceptable levels (which may in some cases mean a level of zero).
- Continual monitoring with regular evaluation of safety performance
- Continual improvement of the effectiveness of the safety management system.
These items are frequently managed in a “Plan-Do-Check-Act” cycle of continual improvement, or a PDCA cycle for short.
- Plan From the hazard and risk assessment, the safety policy and procedures are defined and the resources allocated for putting them into action.
- Do. The policy and procedures are applied.
- Check. Safety performance is measured, in order to check on the relevance, completeness, effectiveness, and efficiency of the implementation.
- Act. Any appropriate remedial measures or improvements are defined, leading back into the planning step (1) above, to restart the cycle.
We adhere to the ISO 9001:2015 standards, which assures our client that we observe a high reliable performance with the best quality practices that the industry has to offer.
Sustainability and the Environment
We recognize the importance of the natural environment and the significance of the ecosystem’s sustainablity in line with MS ISO 14001:2015.
We fully comply with all sustainability and environmental legislations and work pro-actively with all levels of government, regulatory agencies and our clients to facilitate sustainablity and environmental requirements in the early stages of each of our projects.
We are dedicated in preventing pollution and minimizing the adverse impact of our activities on the natural, built and cultural environment. We also reduce waste through minimization strategies and promote the efficient use of natural resources.
