Health, Safety & Environment
Conteck, headquartered in Dublin, Ireland, is actively engaged in the Construction Industry throughout Europe. The main scope of work is in the Instrument, Electrical Installation and Commissioning Field.
The company considers the Health, Safety and Environment of its employees a major part of its responsibility and to properly discharge this responsibility an accident prevention policy has been formed inline with the Company Health, Safety and Environment Policy Statement.
An accident is an operational failure that can be controlled using the same methods employed in any other operational failure. Fundamental to this concept is the fact that conditions responsible for equipment failure, excessive down time, personal problems, faulty workmanship and all other forms of waste, within the operating costs. These reduce profits and cause Client dissatisfaction. The line Supervision is the person most able to control accidents and other operational losses, since he is the person closest to and best able to control the conditions responsible for these losses.
The Company objectives are as follows:
1.The most effective way to control accidents is by methods used normally to control conditions with regards to Health, Safety and the Environment.
2.The Quality of Supervisory performance affects both the efficiency of operation and the control of accidents.
3.Achieving a clear Health, Safety and Environment Strategy for all Projects.
4.The prevention of accidents, damage and losses resulting from work.
5.The prevention of air, water and ground pollution, noise nuisance and the reduction of accidents.
6.Reaching Project related agreements, in accordance with Health, Safety and Environment objectives.
As in any other aspect of work, a clear definition of responsibilities is required so that each person knows what he/she should be doing. Health, Safety and the Environment is no exception and the success of any program depends on the individuals' awareness of their responsibilities.
In Ireland each employee is responsible for their own Health, Safety and Welfare and comforming with Environment Laws of Ireland.
