It is fully integrated in day-to-day operations. We will conduct our activities in compliance with Health, Safety and Environmental legislation.

We will seek continuous improvement in HSE performance by attention to the design of systems of work, processes and products. Therefore, targets are set and their attainment is evaluated regularly to comply with legal requirements.

To achieve this, PHP Businesses will:

  • Work towards the prevention of all injuries associated with our activities and those of our contractors
  • Seek to conduct our activities so as to prevent harm to the health of our employees and others associated with our products and processes
