Occupational Health and Safety
Why is this Issue Material to SGS?
Our work takes us all over the world, which can include regions and locations where the quality of roads and other infrastructure can be poor and concern for safety is less ingrained in the local culture. Some of the industries we provide services to include heavy goods transportation, manufacturing and natural resources extraction, which are associated with a higher level of physical risk.
We believe that every one of our employees and contractors has an equal right to a safe and healthy work environment. In addition to our shared obligations to make this belief a reality, our customers and local regulatory requirements demand world class Quality, Health, Safety and Environmental (QHSE) performance from our company. We are now seeing a shift in the emphasis our customers place on safety, with a greater interest in the procedures and safety culture we have, rather than just the top-line safety statistics.
