"Safety Is Our Strength, We Guarantee It!" - Not just a slogan: Our first and foremost priority is the safety and health of our employees and all our stakeholders. We will not contract any projects unless we can adhere to hands-on training, and safety compliance standards. Every project undertaken is subject to a detailed risk-assessment and methodology statement containing detailed, safe work procedures that are submitted to regulators through a Notice of Project (NOP) process before work commencement and includes rigorous onsite audit processes.
