SPEL Environmental recognises Safety as an ethical and social responsibility to our people, visitors and those affected by our activities.
Our vision to managing safety is:
- People are the solution, not the problem: they need to be empowered to challenge the status quo and drive improvement in safety.
- Safety is a presence of positives, not an absence of negatives: we need to increase focus on when things go right to ensure it can be repeated.
- Engineer the system to fit our people: our Safety Management System need to reflect the reality of work, not work as is expected.
This is a continuous journey to achieve our vision involving everyone within the company.
At the end of the day, all we want is for people to stay safe and be able to return home the same way they came to work, if not better.
