Policy Statement

Health and Safety

We recognize that people are a great asset and are committed to ensuring a safe and healthy workplace for all our employees. Site personnel are given site awareness training relevant to their occupation and duties with Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) provided to site personnel. The Project Manager ensures compliance with health and safety rules, investigates health and safety complaints from workers and takes preventive and corrective measures at all sites. Our Company has a policy of maintaining Workmen’s compensation and Contractors’ All Risk insurance for every project carried out. It is the Company’s intention to meet its statutory obligation and to do all within its power to prevent injury and maintain a safe workplace for all our employees and persons we come into contact with. We demonstrate our commitment to safety and a culture of safety awareness throughout all levels of operations. We put “safety first in everything we do” and execute all works to the highest standard of safety at all times.

Environment

David Walter Limited emphasizes environmental awareness in all we do. We are keenly aware of the impact we and our projects may have on the environment and, as a result, implement programmes and policies to minimise adverse effects focusing on construction methods and materials that allow for a ‘greener’ construction process. We operate an Environmental Management System which enables us to achieve and demonstrate our environmental performance by minimising the negative impact of our operations, whilst maximising the potential for environmental improvement. Our aim is to be at the forefront of the industry in reducing the impact of all our activities on the environment.
