It is the policy of EQUITEL to conduct its activities in such a way that the Health and Safety as well as the Security of its employees, sub-contractors and other persons who may be affected and property used for same activities, are safeguarded and proper regard is paid to the p r o t e c t i o n a n d c o n s e r v a t i o n o f t h e environment.
EQUITEL recognizes that the requirements for sound HSEs standards are inseparable from the goals of efficient and effective operations, required to achieve high quality performance. Therefore, HSEs issues are considered as an integral part of daily activities and will be managed with the same zeal and dedication as production and cost control.
EQUITEL will maintain existing HSE audits, inspections drills, awareness and other programs as continuous machinery for identifying and eliminating hazards, unsafe acts and conditions/practices at the workplaces as part of our corporate goal of improving HSE standards.
