Focus on HSE
We have increasingly focused on health, safety and environmental (“HSE”) aspects to operate a business which is sustainable and viable in the long-term. As businesses are also exposed to the anticipated risk of climate change, we continue to orient our operations through:
- Reinforcing our commitment to renewable energy, maximizing energy efficiency, reducing carbon footprint and enhancing sustainability.
- Socio-economic development in the local economy by generating local employment and local content opportunities.
- Seeking to maximize local procurement, protecting and contributing to environmental sustainability, and ensuring the health and safety of our workforce.
In keeping with our vision, mission, and values, we have also adopted and implemented a Safety, Health, Environment, and Quality Policy (the “SHEQ Policy”). The SHEQ Policy aims to ensure implementation of good industry practices, procedures and processes across sites and offices to ensure safe and sustainable operations as well as maintenance and performance of assets across technical and ESG.
To achieve the objectives set out in the Policy, we have issued various SOPs in line with good industry practices and implemented, procedures such as lock-out and tag-out; arc flash protection; chemical safety; fall protection; safety signages; marking of dangerous zones; spill control; waste management and insulation rescue sticks.
Performance statistics are tracked on a regular basis to ensure accountability and various training programmes have been conducted to educate and train our employees on the use of these procedures.
These programmes also build a culture of understanding, appreciating and valuing the importance of matters pertaining to safety, health and environment.
The management systems of some of our portfolio companies have also been approved by Lloyd’s Register, to standards such as ISO14001:2015 (Environment Management System), ISO45001:2015 (Occupational Healthy and Safety), ISO27001:2013 (Information Security), and ISO55001:2014 (Asset Management).
