Health And Safety

At Karve our people are the most precious asset, and the protection of their safety and health is our primary consideration at all times. We are committed to very clear goals that include:

  • No harm to people
  • A safe and healthy working environment for all our personnel and contractors
  • No impact on the health and safety of our neighbours
  • No accidents

Karve personnel are committed to achieving these goals.

  • Our managers are responsible and accountable for Health and Safety.
  • Our employees and contractors must intervene in unsafe or non-compliant conditions and remain responsible for both their own health and safety and that of others.

  • Ensure that this Management System is understood and applied at all levels within the company
