Safety Health Environment and Quality Policy

HLEM places great store in personal safety and the protection of the natural environment.
We at HLEM employ comprehensive procedures to ensure the best possible safety and protection of our clients, communities, staff, equipment and the natural environment.
Our clients expect a lot more of us than merely the right services at the right prices. We also have a duty to ensure that our operations have no - or, at worst - only minimal adverse effects on human health or the natural environment.
Our concern at HLEM for such matters and the responsibility we take is clearly reflected in our Safety, Health, Environment and Quality (SHEQ) Policies.
Health and Safety
We at HLEM recognise that we have a responsibility to make sure, as far as is reasonably practicable, that steps are taken to ensure the health, safety and welfare of all our employees, contractors, the general public and other persons who may be affected by our activities, undertakings and operations.
Protection of the natural environment forms an integral component of good company practice and, for our part, we at HLEM are committed to ensuring that our activities, undertakings and operations are conducted with due care and regard for the natural environment and in such a way as to prevent damage in particular by selecting the most appropriate herbicides and using the herbicides in a manner that has as little negative impact as reasonably possible. We at HLEM seek to conduct our business in a sustainable manner – where possible, setting objectives and targets. Continual research, evaluation of our work practices and improvement is an integral element of our business strategy.
HLEM is fully committed to becoming continually more effective and customer focused through the implementation of meaningful value adding processes and the more efficient utilisation of human, material and technological resources, with the aim of achieving our continual improvement goal.
HLEM is committed to achieving and maintaining certification with regard to the following standards:

Safety Management System - OHSAS 18001: 2007;
Environmental Management - ISO 14001: 2004; and
Quality Management - ISO 9001: 2008.
We at HLEM also expect those people working for our partner and contractor companies to conduct themselves in a manner which demonstrates the highest prioritisation of health, safety and environmental care at all times.
