“Collective Responsibility towards Excellence”
Deleum recognises and safeguards the welfare of our employees, assets, environment and society at large. We place utmost priority to our Quality, Health, Safety and Environment (QHSE) best practices by making every effort to further improve our policies and procedures which are integrated into daily operations, as well as implemention of various QHSE initiatives across the Group.
In 2009, the Group introduced its HSE slogan “Collective Responsibility towards HSE Excellence” with the aim to instil ownership and collective involvement of each and every employee towards achieving the Group’s HSE objectives.
At Deleum, we focus on continuous improvement in every aspect the way we conduct business, being our commitment in upholding our shared values of Excellence and HSE. In 2009, the Deleum Corporate HSE committee was restructured to include the collective participation from various functions and levels of employees and is headed by the Group Managing Director. This has resulted in strong leadership, resources, visible commitment, personal involvement and active participation in HSE activities. The main functions of the committee are to:
- Review and develop HSE practices, policies and procedures at the workplace;
- Develop annual HSE plan to meet the HSE objectives;
- Organise HSE programmes, review its effectiveness and make recommendations to the Management; and
- Conduct investigations of incidents and accidents which occur at the workplace and recommend remedial measures.
In sustaining a culture of safety and achieving operational excellence at Deleum, an annual QHSE Plan is developed comprising nine elements, namely Leadership and Commitment; Policies and Strategy Objectives; Organisation, Resource, Competency and Documentation; Supplier and Contractor HSE Management; Hazard and Effect Management; Planning and Procedures; Implementation and Monitoring; HSE Assurance and Management Review. Close monitoring on all the outlined action plans and activities will be carried out throughout the year. Threatening issues that arise in the workplace will be reported in the audit and inspection report and subsequent corrective measures will be implemented.
Our QHSE Policies
We are fully focused and committed to providing a safe and healthy workplace for our employees by ensuring our established policies are being adhered to at all times.
