Health & Safety Policy

Fortis is committed to the administration of a comprehensive safety program that promotes the health and safety of each of the company's employees working in the head office or on the client's site.

Safety is a partnership wherein the Company and the Employee share the responsibilities and accountabilities. The success of Fortis' safety program relies not only on management commitment to provide a safe work environment, but on the individual commitment of each employee to uphold safe working practices. Serious safety attitude is the key contribution which employees must adhere to in order to reduce the risks of injury and promote a safety conscious environment. Fortis management will undertake necessary actions, as far as reasonably practicable to ensure that OH&S and Industry Standards are met or exceeded.

Fortis will always continue to do its best in creating and providing the necessary programs, information and environment that will promote an injury free workplace. Fortis management will consult with employees and interested parties on health and safety issues affecting their well being, giving them necessary information, instruction and supervision.

Together we can achieve a safe and healthy work environment that protects the well being of Fortis employees, customers, visitors and other parties involved. Whilst implementing this policy we seek to achieve high standards. We do not pursue this aim simply to comply with current legislation, which we regard as a minimum requirement, but in order to demonstrate continual improvements for the health, safety and welfare of all our staff.

Fortis' Occupational Health and Safety policy calls for continuous improvement in its Occupational Health and Safety management activities; and all company's operations will be carried out according to the principles sated below.

We will:

  • Comply with all applicable laws and regulations;
  • Follow a concept of continuous improvement and make the best use of the resources available in all matters related to the Occupational Health and Safety;
