In all of its operations, BCC is guided by an established Health and Safety policy. This policy is based on a sincere desire to eliminate personal injuries, occupational illness and damage to equipment and property, as well as to protect the general public whenever and wherever the public comes in contact with, or is affected by the company’s work.
Company management and eld supervisors are charged with the responsibility for planning safety into each work task with the goal of avoiding incidents, conditions and actions that could lead to occupational injuries or illness. While the ultimate success of a Health and Safety program depends upon the full cooperation of each individual employee, it is management’s responsibility to see that Health and Safety rules and procedures are established and enforced. Safety should never be sacri ced for production. It must be considered an integral part of quality control, cost reduction and job ef ciency. Every supervisor will be held accountable for the safety performance demonstrated by the employees under his supervision.
The goal is the total elimination of accidents from our operations. There are three sound reasons for this goal:-
(1) A worthy business endeavour need not cause human suffering through disabling injury occupational illness, or loss of life.
(2) A superior Health and Safety record re ects the superior professional competence and serves to promote business thereby contributing to the continued growth and success of the company.
(3) Accidents increase cost, and result in a loss of profit.
Our policy is to accomplish our work in a safe and healthy manner. Management and supervision at every level are charged with the task of integrating this policy into positive and productive business practices.
