BSi Steel Ltd. Safety, Health & Environment
Keeping our staff safe & healthy is a priority for everyone at Bsi Steel Ltd
Working with steel products and heavy machinery requires that we put safety first at all times. Our safety procedures, fully audited last year, are now in full swing across every operational region. Health and Safety is a priority for our executive committee and regular quarterly updates are taken to Main Board meetings. We have a health and safety committee on every base and they, along with the management team on the site, keep control of implementing a comprehensive, proactive safety campaign in each region. All staff members now receive a full safety induction and are proactively trained on a regular basis about behaviours that put safety first.
In addition we take care of employee well-being by offering a wellness campaign, free medical testing, mobile clinic services, stress management, counselling, HIV and AIDS awareness and advice on matters of personal finance. Our objective for this coming year with regard to employee health is to bed down a new HIV/AIDS policy to ensure that we are doing everything we can as a company to proactively fight this disease. As part of this focus project on HIV/AIDS we hope to launch a voluntary testing campaign for all staff throughout the business. The test results will allow us for the first time to know the extent of the infection rate within BSi Steel and enable us to modify our policies and practices as needed to strengthen our impact in this area.
The group has an environmental policy which identifies areas in which the group and its employees can assist in reducing our impact on the environment. The policy will be implemented and reported on in the 2012 integrated report.
