Health and Safety

PW is committed to managing Health, Safety, Environmental and Quality matters relating to our operations in a professional manner.

PW knows that safety on every project is essential. Site safety is a primary concern for senior management of the company.

PW operates its own safety management system, known as the PW Safe Production System. This system sets out corporate safety standards, safety management plans, implementation guidelines etc. The system is implemented for every project and it is audited internally every three months.

A resident PW Safety Officer is dedicated to each site. They ensure that all operations are carried out in accordance with the requirements of the PW Safe Production System, taking into account specific requirements of our clients. The PW Safety Officer is responsible for liaison between PW and the client on safety issues.

All PW employees attend safety inductions. These inductions comply with usual safety procedures as well as those specifically introduced for each project. All employees receive safety training on a monthly basis. All employees are specifically briefed in relation to particular hazards on each project. All Personal Protection Equipment is provided to employees as required. The minimum standard for each employee is safety helmet and safety boots.

PW operates a Quality Management System that puts our customer’s requirements and satisfaction to the fore. Our Quality Management System is coordinated for each project and managed by our experienced Project Managers.

PW knows that the success and growth of our business depends on the use of effective management systems to achieve and surpass the requirements of each project. To help us achieve this we apply the following principles of good management practice:

  • Identifying and understanding the requirements of both our clients and our own staff needs
  • Continuous learning and improvement
  • Maintaining effective communications
  • Proactively seeking improvements in all business operations
  • Maintaining well documented and traceable records
  • Monitoring and reviewing our process to meet and exceed the ever changing needs of our client base.

PW is extremely conscious of the potential impacts that any mining activities or civil engineering related projects may have on the quality of the environment. Everybody who works for PW, on any of our projects, is responsible for helping to ensure our excellent environmental practices. Good environmental performance alongside outstanding levels of health and safety practice is seen as critical to the success of our business.

Our major aims and objectives are outlined in the PW Environmental Policy which has been designed as a summary of our commitment towards good working practice. In essence, our goals are simply stated – no accidents, no harm to people, and no damage to the environment. We will continue to drive down the environmental and health impact of our operations by reducing waste, emissions and discharges.
