Health Safety & Environment (HSE)
Creating a safe and healthy work place for employees, contractors and the public and practising responsible stewardship of the environment in its activities are key priorities for Blacksands Pacific. We work to improve our HSE performance through:
Leadership and Commitment Company Management
Leadership and Commitment Company Management Conducts regular safety tours of facilities, and sponsors and promotes health and safety programs. Blacksands Pacific also sponsors periodic third party audits of its HSE performance and implements recommendations arising from the audits.
Training and Safe Operations
Employees and contractors’ staffs are trained on Blacksands Pacific’s HSE policy and work procedures. Compliance with the HSE policy and work procedures is a condition of employment. Blacksands Pacific conducts regular safety training sessions and emergency response drills. Task Risk Assessments of activities are conducted regularly and control measures instituted to eliminate or mitigate HSE impact.
Incident Reporting and Investigation
To encourage employees to report unsafe conditions and practices Blacksands Pacific has adopted a “No Blame” approach to responding to accidents and near misses. Incidents are documented and investigated. Recommendations are made to help prevent a reoccurrence and lessons learned are shared throughout the Company. The “No Blame” approach has ensured that there is excellent two-way communication between employees and management on health and safety issues.
Environmental protection and conservation are a fundamental part of Blacksands Pacific’s operations. We ensure that all new projects comply with the relevant standards and regulations and upgrade our existing facilities. Blacksands Pacific’s waste management policy promotes minimization and recycling. Blacksands Pacific collaborates with local groups to promote environmental awareness and continuously re-evaluate its performance to ensure compliance.
