ALS are totally committed to protecting our employees and those around us, and to providing a safe working environment. All of our employees are responsible for ensuring the health, safety and welfare of themselves, each other and all those affected by our activities. This includes: customers, suppliers and the general public.
We operate a risk-based management system setting rigorous targets for continuous performance improvement. Health and Safety is on the agenda at all meetings ensuring it stays at the forefront of all of our minds.
We have an uncompromising commitment to reducing our impact on the environment and work in partnership with our clients to minimise their environmental impact as well. With a policy to continually assess the impact of our operations we seek to use processes, practices and materials that avoid, reduce or control pollution. We pay particular attention to managing emissions of substances, and have stringent recycling and reuse guidelines, helping to minimise waste and reduce our combined use of natural resources.
