The TGS Safety Policy is Regularly Monitored by the Director of Health Safety & Environment
Our single greatest asset is our employee base.
As such, TGS is committed to providing a safe, healthy and sustainable workplace for our employees, contractors, vendors and clients while protecting the environment in which we live and work.
TGS is dedicated to the continuous improvement of health, safety and security standards for our people and insist on the same policy from our contractors and vendors.
We have defined safe operating procedures in the HSE Management System that are designed to meet or exceed all appropriate legal requirements and, in the absence of any defined standards, to meet or exceed generally-accepted, industry wide “best operating practices”.
A high level of safety awareness shall be maintained by employing our Statement of Values and the basic principles of Leadership, Risk Management and Continuous Improvement. All employees are encouraged to actively participate in the management of safety by striving to achieve defined objectives and standards, which are regularly reviewed and appraised.
TGS holds all employees and contractors accountable for, and requires a commitment to their own health and safety as well as for those with whom they work. Everyone is empowered to intervene and STOP any operation or activity that they feel is unsafe or hazardous, and that this action will be supported by all management.
Line management has the responsibility for the communication and implementation of TGS health and safety policies. Line management shall ensure that employees have the appropriate information, instruction, training, financial and physical resources available to enable compliance with health and safety requirements and these shall be regularly reviewed to ensure ongoing suitability and effectiveness.
To promote continuous improvement in workplace safety, all personnel are encouraged to propose opportunities for improvement by means of direct communication with the Director of Health Safety & Environment.
This policy shall be regularly monitored by the Director of Health Safety & Environment to ensure ongoing suitability and form part of the annual review process of the TGS HSE management system.
