Health & Safety

QHSE Is Our Highest Priority

Within the GEV Group, the health and safety of all persons who are, or may be affected by our operations, is our highest priority. Through the implementation of bespoke health and safety management systems across the Group, GEV can assure prevention of harm and compliance with regulatory and customer requirements.

10 Reasons Why Health & Safety is Important to GEV

It is morally right to ensure our workers return home safe and healthy at the end of every working day

By protecting our workers, we reduce absences, ensuring that our workplace is more efficient and productive

Research shows that workers are more productive in workplaces that are committed to health and safety

Reducing down-time caused by illness and accidents means less disruption – and saves our business money

Good health and safety at work secures long-term benefits for all, our business and the wider community

In some countries, health and safety legislation is criminal law and we are legally obliged to comply with it. Legal breaches can result in prosecution, fines and even imprisonment of our senior executives

To attract investors and partnerships we need to demonstrate our commitment to sustainability and corporate social responsibility, which will include how we protect our workers

Increasingly, customers want to buy products and services that are produced ethically – so we also need to think about the work practices throughout our supply chain and deal only with ethical suppliers that protect their workforce

More and more, job hunters – particularly Millennials and Generation Z – seek roles with employers who share their values, so without strong corporate responsibility and sustainability practices we may struggle to attract or retain the best employees

A good health and safety record is a source of competitive advantage: it builds trust in our reputation and brand, while poor health and safety performance will directly affect profitability and can result in loss of trade or even closure of the business

1st for Safety Introduction

1st4Safety is the GEV initiative for health and safety management, implemented across all Group divisions.

GEV achieve the goal of being 1st4Safety by continuous assessment, monitoring and improvement of critical processes.

Our teams are empowered and engaged to take care of themselves, their colleagues and employees of partner organisations via the STAYsafe and ACTsafe principles.

QHSE

Act Safe

All GEV employees and contractors have a mandatory obligation to conform with local, client and internal rules for health and safety. However, ACTsafe provides our teams with the responsibility and authority to take action when harm or ill health has the potential to occur.

The immediate suspension of work activities where hazards and associated risks are not in control is a fundamental of ACTsafe. To enable continual improvement, open communication and reporting of incidents and near misses is actively encouraged.

QHSE

Stay Safe

STAYsafe covers the safety skills required by our personnel to support our 1st4Safety programme and helps to focus on mitigating unintentional errors through personal responsibility instead of simply rules, procedures and company requirements.

STAYsafe helps to provide our personnel with the knowledge and skills so they can be proactive about safety, throughout the course of their duties. It incorporates a ‘check-mate’ principal, where all persons shall monitor and support their colleagues to implement safety requirements. Each person is responsible for checking their own safety and that of others, and to STAYsafe.

QHSE

Process Safe

The GEV health and safety management system, certified in compliance with OHSAS 18001, forms the fundamental foundations of the 1st4Safety initiative. Documented processes have been implemented, so that identified risks and applicable customer, statutory and regulatory requirements are controlled and complied with.

Resources are identified, provided and maintained, so that employees have the skills, awareness, training and equipment to carry out their duties to the highest possible safety standards.
