The ENMAN Group (“ENMAN”) is committed to achieving and maintaining excellence in all aspects of its operations. ENMAN recognises and accepts the mandate to conduct its activities in a responsible manner and will, so far as practicable, provide a system of work that protects the health and safety of its own employees, visitors, sub-contractors and the public and at the same time minimises the impact of its activities on the environment. We also recognise that all injuries are preventable.
The accountability for achieving these objectives is vested in the level of Operations Manager. To achieve excellence in our business and work environment, the commitment and co-operation of all management, staff, sub-contractors and visitors is essential.
We recognise the fact that good health, safety and environment (“HSE”) management has positive benefits to the organisation and that commitment to a high level of HSE performance makes good business sense. It also recognises that HSE management is an essential function, and must therefore continually improve, update and adapt to changes.
In order to support this Policy, ENMAN will:
- Develop, implement and maintain the ENMAN Group Internal Policies;
- Promote and maintain high awareness of workplace Hazards, the Risks associated with them and the techniques to render risks as low as reasonably practicable;

- Ensure that employees are competent to conduct their specified tasks;
- Improve awareness of all HSE matters among employees and sub-contractors;
