RESPONSIBILITIES

Our responsibility covers five different areas. It is management’s duty to continuously weigh priorities against each other and – based on those considerations – to act in accordance with our inseparably bound together responsibilities.

a. Towards shareholders
Maintaining the capital invested by shareholders and providing returns that can compete with that of other leading organisations in the sector in the long term.

b. Towards clients
Recruiting and retaining clients by developing and providing safe and environmentally responsible services of high quality for a reasonable price, based on the necessary technical, environmental and commercial expertise.

c. Towards employees
Respecting the human rights of our employees, providing good and safe working conditions and offering competitive employment conditions. Stimulating the development and making optimal use of our employees’ talents; creating a work environment in which there is room for individual differences and in which everyone has equal opportunities to develop their skills and talents. Involving employees in the planning and the specific execution of their activities; providing ways to report any concerns someone may have. We are fully aware that professional success requires the full commitment of all employees.

d. Towards those we do business with
Striving to develop mutually beneficial relationships with contractors, suppliers and joint venture partners, as part of which the application of GRUPACON’s general policy guidelines or similar policy guidelines is to be stimulated. The opportunity to effectively stimulate these policy guidelines is an important factor in the decision of whether to engage in or continue such relationships.

e. Towards our society
Operating as a responsible member of society, abiding by applicable laws and regulations, supporting fundamental human rights insofar as that fits within the legitimate role of professional organisations and acting in accordance with standards of safety, health, wellbeing and environment.

HSEQ POLICY STATEMENT

GRUPACON Sp. z o.o. takes pride in its work, the professionalism of its employees and its excellent tradition when it comes to workplace safety. We want to prevent any and all harm or damage and therefore continuously strive to avoid accidents. We take this responsibility very seriously and we expect the same from anyone who works with or for us.

In preparing and executing the general company policy, management will consciously and fully account for the known and obvious regulations and legislation pertaining to Health, Safety, Environment and Quality (HSEQ).

Management is responsible for the organisation of the HSEQ policy. The proper operation and permanent evaluation as well as the maintenance and continuous improvement of the HSEQ system is an absolute priority. It is management’s belief that the HSEQ policy and system must be understood and put into practice at all levels of the organisation. The policy is intended to stimulate and maintain operating procedures and behaviour that help prevent bodily harm, work-related illnesses, material damage and damage to the environment. Furthermore, its quality and meeting the expectations of the involved parties are important aspects. The VCA/VCU manual describes the relevant procedures that can be used to give substance to this policy in a concrete manner. The goal is to meet the requirements of the VCA* v.2008/5.1. and VCU v.2011/05 standards.

Management believes that mentality is a key factor in this matter. It will therefore provide an active and involved policy with open and clear communication.

The following rules form the basis of the policy to achieve these goals:

  • There is an unconditional emphasis on respect for and the integrity of our fellow man.
  • Our business operations focus on quality, safety, health, wellbeing and care for our environment based on sustainability, equality and the latest technological developments
  • Quality, safety, health, wellbeing and the environment are integral parts of all discussions taking place within the organisation
  • The daily operations and any decisions to be made are tested against the aforementioned principles
  • All employees, regardless of their position, will be stimulated or trained as much as necessary to maintain and improve the management system for quality, safety, health, wellbeing and environment
  • The care for third parties

Without any limitations, the following quality and safety principles apply:

  • Harm and damage are to be prevented
  • A proper attitude towards safety is a condition of working for our organisation
  • If something cannot be done safely, it will not be done at all
  • Life-threatening actions are punishable by termination of employment
  • Safety and quality are to be continuously improved
  • Safety and quality are line responsibilities
  • Preventing harm is economically profitable
  • This policy statement is publicly available and will be revised every three years
