The health and safety of our employees and everyone else affected by our activities along with the protection of the environment in which we operate is fundamental to the success of our business. The health and safety of our people and local communities as well as the environment in which we operate always comes first in ASGC.
Our philosophy is to continually strive for a ‘Zero Harm’ environment. Accordingly, we implement comprehensive health, safety and environmental policies and procedures throughout our operations, in the belief that all incidents are avoidable. Our HSE management system is accredited to international standards ISO 14001 and ISO 45001 and we are also members of BSC (British Safety Council) www.britsafe.org
We empower and encourage all workers and project stakeholders to stop work if it is unsafe, and we shall support this.
We shall provide the required training, skills and knowledge to all employees to carry out work safely.
We shall provide visible and committed leadership, and set clear accountability at all levels of the organization.
We shall ensure all project functions work collaboratively towards an injury free environment supporting target zero.
We shall ensure that the correct equipment and resources are available to carry out work safely.
We shall ensure all operations are carried out with due care for the environment and surrounding communities.
Protecting the environment for generations to come is important and the majority of our projects have achieved LEED and ESTIDAMA accreditation. LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is the most widely used green building rating system in the world. Estidama is a building design methodology for constructing and operating buildings and communities more in a more sustainable manner.
In line with our culture of care, and Zero Harm environment we also undertake activities to enhance the physical health and mental wellbeing of our employees. This includes the provision of professional medical care, regular health surveillance and information programs designed to help educate the organizations work force on healthier lifestyles, as well as the provision of sport and recreational facilities at our worker accommodation, as well as our almost famous ASGC annual cricket contest with nearly 100 teams entering.
