Quality, Health, Safety & Environmental (QHSE) Policy
The long-term business success of Caracal depends on our ability to continually improve the quality of our services and products while protecting people and the environment. Emphasis shall be placed on human health, operational safety, environmental protection, quality improvement and community goodwill. This commitment is in the best interest of all our stakeholders, our customers, shareholders, employees, contractors and communities in which we live and work.
Caracal requires the active commitment to, and accountability for, QHSE from all employees and contractors. Management has a leadership role in communicating, implementing and complying.
With QHSE policies and standards, we are committed to:
- Protect and strive for the improvement of the health, safety and security of our people always;
- Identify and eliminate waste, minimize Quality non-conformities and HSE incidents;
- Meet and surpass customer requirements and ensure continuous satisfaction;
- Set Quality and HSE objectives, measure objectives, measure results, assess and continually improve processes, services, product quality and HSE performance, through the use of an effective management system;
- Plan for, respond to, and recover from any emergency, crisis or business disruption;
- Minimize the impact on the environment through pollution prevention, reduction of our natural resource consumption and emissions, and the reduction and recycling of waste;
- Apply our technical skills to all QHSE aspects and impacts in the provision of our services and products;
- Communicate our QHSE policies, standards, programmes and performances with our stakeholders and reward outstanding QHSE performance.
The policy shall be periodically reviewed to ensure ongoing suitability. The commitments listed are in addition to our basic obligation to Caracal standards, as well as all applicable laws and regulations where we operate. This policy is critical to our business success because it helps us to systematically minimize QHSE losses and adds value for all our stakeholders.
