Safety / Environmental Achievements
We're not just an engineering company serving people; we're a people company serving engineering. There is clear responsibility and accountability for safety management system within Kwan On with a reporting line direct to the Project Director. Managements treat front-line staff as they would like to be treated.
We implement the Safe Working Cycle under 5 aspects: people, equipment, materials, methods, and environment and to explain every procedure to the frontline staff and enable them to easily understand and will ensure projects are reviewed at the planning stage so as to minimize future risks. By the principle of "Walk the Talk", foremen will keep track of implementation of the safety measures, check the compliance and address problems that may occur during its implementation.
In our safety management system, a Crisis Management Plan is also in place for rapid mobilization of resources and well-coordinated actions to deal with any unplanned events. Apart from conducting fire drill and rescue exercise to keep up our prompt response, we have recruited the coloring contest winner as “Safety Kid” to help spread the occupational safety and health message.
“Round Table Tea-break” is another opportunity for the top-management management to meet the front-line staff face-to-face and maintain comprehensive two-way dialogue to exchange their views on works-related concerns and accomplish mutual goals. All these helps to further enhance the efficiency of Safe Working Cycle. Besides, we will continuously develop the safety awareness our members and recognize their achievements.
Recognizing that to be successful, it would have to be flexible and gauge the pulse of the community by selecting quality sub-contractors who are registered under Voluntary Subcontractor Registration Scheme with strong safety awareness, a sound safety management system, and a good safety record. Through discussing the development of safety administration from a “people-based” perspective with the sub-contractors, we can make sure they understand clearly and are fully aware of the in-house safety rules and their ability to meet our team’s safety management obligations as well as address their concerns wherever possible.
