Working in challenging environments requires stringent safety procedures.

The health and safety of our employees, subcontractors, clients, and the general public is our top priority. That’s why we didn’t just create standard health and safety guidelines; we embedded a comprehensive health and safety program into our culture to satisfy even the most demanding safety requirements.

It’s another example of our commitment to going beyond the minimum requirements in everything we do.

Our safety policy is integrated throughout the company. We have appointed a dedicated safety manager, and our safety committee—comprising employees and managers from different offices and disciplines—meets regularly to discuss improvements. The senior management team discuss safety at all weekly management meetings.
