Health and Safety

Ensuring the health and safety of our employees is among our core values. We, therefore, do not tolerate unsafe acts or conditions. We believe that, as an organization, we can prevent all injuries and occupational illnesses by employing best safety and health practices.

Management is responsible for ensuring a safe workplace by minimizing hazards and providing training and safe equipment. We also encourage a strong safety culture that empowers all employees to report and address safety issues. We expect similarly rigorous procedures from our contractors.

We maintain an integrated program of employee training and workplace inspections at all of our operations.
