The purpose of the Safety procedure is to provide awareness about safety and to develop a state of readiness, which will allow for a prompt and orderly response to an emergency and to comply with the statutory obligations. This safety plan is structured around four major objectives.
- Understanding the type and extent of potential emergencies (Risk / Exposures)
- Establishing a high order of preparedness (equipment, personnel) and commensurate with the risk.
- Ensuring an orderly and timely decision-making response process
- Providing an incident management organization with a clear mission and line of authority
The Procedure deals with the Fire safety and work safety condition for every person available on company premises and for machines.
