Health and safety

Biwater recognises the importance of health, safety and welfare in all aspects of its work.

As such, the Group ensures that works carried out during the execution of all its projects are in accordance with the relevant statutory provisions and that all reasonably practicable measures are taken to avoid risk to employees and others who may be affected.

Management and supervisory staff are responsible for implementing the Group’s Health and Safety Policy, to ensure that safe working practices are developed and maintained, and that health and safety considerations are always given equal priority in planning and day-to-day supervision of projects.

To manage safety risks, all those involved in a project are reminded that:

  1. All Biwater employees are to make health and safety their number one priority
  2. Safety is an important consideration, not only for Biwater employees but for any sub-contractors involved in a project and the wider local community

Biwater applies a structured approach to the prevention and minimisation of occupational health and safety risk, and also seeks to mitigate unsafe acts and conditions, to eliminate harmful physical and chemical working environment conditions, and to improve occupational health and safety awareness.
