  • Health & Safety Policy

It is in our SOP to provide safe and accident- free atmosphere to employees. Moreover, safe and healthy environment are not built overnight. They’re outcome of continuous effort and determination to create benchmarks in order to providing safe environment.

It’s not solely responsibility of management to adhere compliance, it requires cooperation from every and single individual. Therefore, it’s important to have open and clear communication across the board. Everyone is not perfect some are quick learner and some adapt quickly to change. Site workers who have safety problems or they have impression that further training is required to accomplish job, they must inform their line supervisors. Thus, it is then responsibility of line supervisors to address these concerns and provide additional training.

It is important for every employee to adhere and apply safety protocols in workplace. Supervisors must instill a positive attitude and safety awareness in their workers through personal adherence, personal contact, training, and regularly scheduled safety meetings. It is important part of their job descriptions to strive very hard to comply the policies of health and safety standards.

Aenzay safety standards are based an outcome of past experience. These standards are defining compliance which have shape organization structure. Aenzay ensures that its employees apply health and safety standards in workplace., special training sessions are conduct in this regard. Failure to comply is sufficient grounds for disciplinary action or for termination of employment either contract also.

Health and safety standards are integral part of Aenzay compliance, which promotes culture of productivity and quality. Moreover, they go hand in hand. Of course, the best reason for you to observe these policies is because it’s in your own self-interest to do so.

The continuous usage of safety compliance makes work and site place safer, health and risk free to work. We continuously endeavor to achieve high quality standards.
