Health & Safety
Safety is more than just following rules. It is about attitude, discipline, the safe management of people and equipment and the ability to prevent hazards and control risk.
We aim to provide workplaces that are free of incidents and injuries and to promote a culture of hazard identification and awareness, incident reporting and self-accountability. This can only be achieved through consultation and co-operation by all.
There can be no compromise with safety and accident prevention in the workplace. We consider our commitment to be vital to the ultimate success of our business operations and an integral part of management’s overall responsibilities. We operate our business responsibly and ethically and comply with statutory requirements at all times.
Employees are provided with appropriate training and safe equipment to perform their job safely. Each employee is personally responsible for working in a safe manner, following all health and safety policies and procedures, participating in training and identifying and reporting any health and safety issues and hazards to management or the relevant internal stakeholders.
Hazards to health and safety will be removed or, where this is not practicable, they will be managed so as to prevent injury, illness and dangerous occurrences. Accidents and incidents in the workplace will be investigated and changes implemented where necessary to eliminate or control identified risks.
Leica Geosystems encourages meaningful consultation between management and employees on matters affecting health and safety and will provide the necessary resources to meet our health and safety obligations.
