HSE & QUALITY POLICY

HEALTH, SAFETY, ENVIRONMENT AND QUALITY POLICY.

We consistently ensure that each  member of the EDSCO family behaves respectfully towards his or her surroundings, friends, customers, associates, and other contractors to guarantee that they all return home safely to their loved ones, starting with our rooted conviction and culture that “all accidents are preventable.”

We make sure that we live up to our belief by taking a proactive approach that includes preparation and trainings, rigorous policies, tracking, risk assessment, and implementation of carefully planned systemic improvement measures.

EDSCO maintains high levels of HSE standards that comply with internal needs but also with international norms because we work in a wide range of sectors and industries, including the very demanding Banking and Healthcare Sectors.

According to EDSCO, maintaining high standards of quality results in win-win situations for all project stakeholders: ‘we do it right the first time!’

EDSCO has been operating in different industries where a deep understanding of projects is a must, as a result, all quality issues revolve around the human element, that is why we invest in people to nurture their expertise by developing necessary skills to detect potential faults beforehand.

  • To review annual reports, and continually strive to improve our sustainability performance.

In order to put these principles into practice we will:

  • Avoid physically traveling to meetings etc where alternatives are available and practical, such as using teleconferencing, video conferencing, or webcams, and efficient timing of meetings to avoid multiple trips. These options are also often more time-efficient, while not sacrificing the benefits of regular contact with clients and partners.
  • Reduce the need for our staff to travel by supporting alternative working arrangements, including home working, etc.
  • Minimize our use of paper and other office consumables, for example by double-siding all paper used, and identifying opportunities to reduce waste.

  • Reduce the energy consumption of office & Project work equipment by purchasing energy-efficient equipment and good housekeeping.

  • Ensure that any Subcontractors, Suppliers, or Designers that we employ take account of sustainability issues.
  • Where possible deploy “Virtualization” technology in the IT Department to ensure that the Company’s energy consumption requirements are minimized by reducing the number of physical machines required to mount IT solutions onto.
  • Strive to achieve a more paperless office. To this end, several document management systems have been developed that allow employees and customers to retrieve and transmit documents electronically e.g. PODs Invoices, etc.
  • Through our “Load Tracker” Company Building and Satellite Tracking software continually monitor all vehicle journeys and optimize Company-building to ensure that all vehicle movements and volumes are minimized thereby reducing our CO2 emissions.
