Workplace health and safety is a critical component of CBMM's Integrated Management Sys- tem. To ensure the prevention of workplace accidents and occupational disease, the Com- pany has instituted a com- prehensive set of procedures such as identifying and controlling risks and inves- tigating accidents. In addition, employees receive specific rewards for better perfor- mance.
Employees and on-site service providers participate in monthly health and safety training activities, as well as collaborative efforts like the Accident Prevention Commission. These initiatives have led to engagement on all levels of the Company to secure safe workplaces. The result has been low injury rates and few lost days due to accidents.
The Company's Worker Health and Safety Management System gained OHSAS 18001 certification in 2002.
