Health, Safety and Environment Policy

Approach

In line with our Group Health, Safety and Environment Policy Statement, GZ Industries is committed to conducting its business in a manner that promotes the health and safety of its employees and all stakeholders and assets, as well as protect the environment.

GZ I’s Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) Section is mainly responsible for the administration of corporate matters on occupational health, safety and environmental protection. The unit renders services that include Corporate Environmental Protection and Safety Management, compliance with Corporate Safety Standards, Pollution Control, Fire protection, Emergency preparedness and response, conducts Corporate-wide Health, Safety and Environmental (HSE) awareness campaigns, enforcement of compliance, carryout compliance audit and HSE internal training as well as institutionalize Health, Safety and Environment related culture in the company.

At GZI, the safety of our people, protection of our environment and assets are the main focus. Our first priority is the prevention of avoidable emergencies and such other incidents as fire disasters, oil spills, effluent discharges, gas emissions and releases; but when they do occur, we respond swiftly, learn from each incident and improve our readiness. We ultimately aim to achieve “goal zero” with zero incidents to ensure no-harm-to people and no-harm-to environment viz: zero emissions, zero spills, zero effluent discharges, zero fatalities and zero litigation.

We achieve this through our standard Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) practices which holistically improves overall business performance, enables sustainable development, sustains positive corporate image and assures all stakeholders of GZI’s corporate social responsibility and sustainable development initiatives. In continual demonstration of responsible HSE management practices in every aspect of our operations, we have advanced rapidly in the implementation of a comprehensive HSE Management System (HSE-MS) corporate-wide, enabling HSE risks to be mitigated and managed to as low as reasonably practicable (ALARP).

HSE fits strategically into GZI’s mandate by working in the best way to balance and integrate all aspects of environment and safety considerations into all GZI business objectives and decisions. These considerations include among others, strong HSE management and performance in GZI Engineering designs, construction and technology selection, continuous development and training. In this regard, we maintain an effective synergy with all our units for effective coordination and monitoring of all aspects of safety and environment in Engineering projects and operations.
