A good workplace is fundamental to allowing our staff focusing on their work and pursue excellence. Our management pays attentions to different aspects constituting a better environment.
Safety in the workplace is one of our top priorities. Our safety team routinely conducts inspections to identify all hazards and make Green Island Cement a safe place to work.
We have a safety system in place and have accredited ISO 45001 so as to monitor and review the effectiveness of our safety system. We also adopt 5S in our workplace to improve efficiency and foster a more comfortable and safe environment for all of our staff.
We understand nothing can compensate for the pain of an injured family member and commit to promote SHE culture and prevent any industrial accident from happening.
From “Everyone is a Safety Officer” to “Everyone is a Safety Lead”, we incubate team members to take the initiative in Safety Management.
We have proactively adopted preventive measures and set safety KPIs to reduce workplace incidents and injuries. Being fully committed to complying with local relevant statutory health and safety legislation and statutory provisions, we have achieved ISO 45001, a critical barometer for industrial safety.
Over many years of taking care of each other at GIC, we have “we are peers” culture where employees are incentivized and motivated to ensure the health and safety of their colleagues. The success of this approach has resulted in a significant decrease in the number of lost days due to work injury.
To ensure our facilities are properly and safely managed, we maintain an ongoing scheduled preventive maintenance programme in various operational departments. Together with the guiding principles set forth in the Integrated Policy of Quality, Environmental, Safety and Health and our Ten General Safety Rules, our Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) training system is rigorously implemented for all staff - from frontline operators to office staff - to minimize industrial injuries. Our in-house safety and environment rules, which are implemented through our Unsafe Acts / Conditions Control Procedure, Safety Working Cycle, as well as Inspection Programme and Training, ensure we are running an effective safety and health management system to minimize the exposure of health and safety risks to our staff.
We support the Smoke-free Workplace Campaign! Hong Kong Council on Smoking and Health (COSH) organizes the Hong Kong Smoke-free Leading Company Awards regularly and promotes creating a smoke-free atmosphere and supportive environment for smokers to quit smoking and reduce peer group influence.
We won Gold Award among 480 companies in 2016.
