Protection of the safety and health of all personnel under GibbCo’s control is of the highest priority and processes will be put in place to prevent work related injuries and incidents. Further, it is a commitment of GibbCo to comply with all national & international regulations.
It is the responsibility of all managers and supervisors to ensure that all activities under their control are performed in a safe manner. The Company Safety Officer will oversee the entire safety program by working with the managers and supervisors; however it is the responsibility of each manager to understand, execute and enforce the safety program. It is a condition of employment for all employees to follow all safety rules and directives including reporting any unsafe working conditions or situations.
It is the responsibility of GibbCo managers to measure and assess safety performance and put in place measures for continuous improvement.
Specifically, GibbCo is committed to:
a) Develop and embed a safety culture in all our activities that recognizes the importance and value of effective safety management and acknowledges that safety is a paramount concern.
b) Develop the safety processes to conform to ILO -class standards; and comply with and, if possible, exceed national legislative and regulatory requirements and standards.
c) Clearly define for all staff their accountabilities and responsibilities for the implementation of safety programs and ensure that all staff are provided with adequate and appropriate safety information and training, are competent in the safe execution of the work and are only allocated tasks commensurate with their skills.
d) Minimize the risks associated with work under our control, to a point that is as low as reasonably practicable/achievable.
e) Ensure that externally supplied systems and services that impact upon the safety of our operations meet appropriate safety standards.
f) Establish and measure our safety performance against realistic objectives and/or targets.
g) Conduct safety and management audits and reviews and ensure that relevant action for improvement of safety performance is taken.
