Safety is an Attitude / Safety is a Value
Health & Safety is fundamental to all business and industry where there is worker involvement. Leadership in this area is a daily requirement and continues to be an ongoing challenge. We at Gama, workers, supervisors, managers and business owners consider worker health and safety as part of the long term business plan and operating strategies.
The concept that safety is a value can simply be viewed as an ethic that guides the way an individual views safety. At our company, it means that safety is not simply viewed as a top priority on par with productivity or operation rather it is an ethic that guides everything employees do.
Many facilities have gone some time without any injury incidents, so we at Gama believe that if it is possible to achieve Zero incident for some time, one can argue that it is possible to achieve this level of performance all the time.
Safety is our top priority because lives depend on it. We passionately care about the safety of our people and behave as safety leaders. We are committed to preventing injuries and ill health to our people and everyone we work with. We provide our people with the training, knowledge and tools to work safely and prevent accidents. We are focused on assuring the safety of everything we design, construct, operate and maintain.
As We expands our presence in different parts of the market, we conducted our operations in a manner that recognizes the diversity of cultures and customs we encounter and to be a responsible corporate citizen. The Safety and Health of our workforce and our Environment Stewardship are just as important to our success as Operational and Financial Performance, Government Relations, Ethical Behavior, Corporate Reputation, Social Responsibility, Customer Focus and Employee Involvement and Commitment.
We strived to make our facilities safer and better places in which to work and our attention to detail and focus on HSE will ensure high standards of performance. We are committed to a process of continuous improvement in all we do and to the adoption of international and national industry standards and codes wherever practical. Our efforts in the areas of HSE will be directed by the following principles:
We will strive to make our workplaces free of injuries and accidents with 100% safe work practices and safe conditions throughout our operations.
We are committed to the protection of the environment and shall apply industry best practices as appropriate to minimize environmental pollution.
Effective management of risk is fundamental to achieving safe operations. We will systematically identify potential hazards, assess their relative significance, develop reduction measures and establish suitable controls to ensure that risks are minimized.
Being properly prepared for an emergency is of vital importance and is the responsibility of management, supervisors and employees at all levels. We will maintain emergency plans in cooperation with local authorities and emergency services groups to ensure a prompt, effective and integrated response to minimize harmful effects from any incidents.
We will comply with all applicable laws, regulations, standards and recognized codes of practice and, where any of these are inadequate, adopt and apply high standards that reflect our commitment to safety, the protection of the natural environment and the health of our workforce.
We will establish appropriate measurement criteria and performance indicators and measure our HSE performance regularly and at all stages of operation. We will monitor our operations for compliance with applicable HSE legislative and regulatory requirements as well as for compliance with applicable standards, policies and procedures through periodic reviews and audits.
We recognize that our contractors are essential to achieving our HSE goals. We will require our contractors to work closely with us to promote an excellent standard of HSE compliance and performance and to conform to the Company’s policies.
Our management systems provide a framework for setting targets, measuring performance, managing risks, investigating incidents and reporting results. We will employ these systems and encourage and require employee involvement to achieve continual improvement in our overall HSE performance.
We will clearly communicate our HSE commitments, responsibilities and performance to our employees, our contractors and the public and we will provide information to all relevant parties on the safe use, handling, transportation, storage, recycling, reuse and dispose of our materials and wastes.
We will ensure that employees and contractors understand their HSE responsibilities, that they have the right training for their jobs and are competent to perform their assignments safely, effectively and efficiently.
We are dedicated to being a good citizen in the communities where we work. We will conduct our operations safely, cleanly and responsibly and will be proactive in some issues of mutual interest.
