We strive to maximize productivity without compromising employee safety. The implementation of a comprehensive safety and health program is an important tool for creating both a safe and profitable workplace. The benefits of maintaining a safe work environment are many, but first and foremost, safety is about protecting our workers. The practice of safety also brings financial benefits.
At AMAK we truly believe a safe work environment impacts a company’s bottom line, both directly and indirectly. Costs associated with incidents are minimized in a safe work environment. So are the indirect costs that follow incidents. Further, a safe work environment boosts employee morale, which, in turn, increases productivity, efficiency and profit margins, we also believe that if we practice safety effectively, it will result in fewer unscheduled interruptions and minimize costs.
We are committed to providing safe work areas, machinery and equipment; to providing information, instruction, training and supervision; and to providing personal protective equipment. We are committed to creating an injury-free workplace for employees, suppliers, contractors, partners and visitors alike.
