In Budimex, the concern about safety of employees and persons carrying out works on construction sites is the matter of ethics, moral and social responsibility. It is in our interest to take any actions to avoid accidents and reduce health risks. The basis for the Budimex actions is the belief that safety is a common good and we are responsible not only for ourselves, but also for colleagues. Therefore, actions in the field of safety improvement on construction sites are participated by all co-workers of contractors, consortium members, suppliers and individual persons involved in the project implementation.
Compliance with the OHS law is essential. Certified OHS system operate in our Group – in Mostostal Kraków it is PN-N-18001, and in Budimex SA – OHSAS 18001 and PN-N-18001. In 2018, no significant changes occurred in that respect. We feel that the Budimex Group's activities to ensure the highest level of occupational health and safety are beyond the regulations, thus constituting additional and voluntary solutions. "Soft" actions are worth of being continuously improved – raising awareness about hazards, education about good habits and attitudes, as they eliminate the risk of accidents.
In the Budimex Group we have been applying the Occupational Health and Safety Policy for years - from the business perspective it is one of the key policies. Its goal is to ensure safe processes, workplaces free from hazards, compliance with all legal regulations. Additionally, within the framework of the Policy, good practices are implemented in the Group to build a safety culture. The implemented tools allow for the acquisition of knowledge about potential threats and for the accurate identification of risks.
