Please see below for more information on our practices and procedures that highlight our commitments.
We prioritise corporate social responsibility because we believe in having a positive impact on the world through sustainable social, economic, and environmental practices. This isn’t just the right thing to do, it is also an essential part of good company management. CSR helps us:
- Identify new opportunities to meet emerging social needs
- Efficiently use our energy and resources to reduce costs for the company and the client
- Avoid risky actions that might harm our reputation
- Prepare for future regulation
- Maintain positive relationships with our stakeholders
- Maintain high standards in our supply chain to ensure safe and quality products
- Protect our consumers and customers
- Attract and retain the best employees who are environmentally and socially conscious and who share our values
Our senior management is committed to constant improvement when it comes to LeBLANC’s safety performance. Our policy is to minimise the risk of accidents by applying a formal safety management system. The company Procedures Manual – available to all organisational members as well as stakeholders – outlines the operation and structure of the safety management system.
Our senior management are responsible for the overall safety performance of the company. Subordinate managers and supervisors are accountable for the safety performance of any activities for which they are responsible. Each member of our organisation is responsible for the safety of their actions and for complying with all legislation and standards set forth by the company.
We are committed to operating a safety-conscious culture, and do so by:
- Proactively incorporating safety principles and controls into all standard operating procedures
- Providing all personnel with the necessary skills to maintain required competencies
- Creating awareness of hazards and risks in order to avoid them
- Encouraging the recognition of hazards and incidents on a non-punitive basis
- Promoting effective communication between management and staff
- Utilising all staff in identifying hazardous conditions and practices and developing solutions to eliminate them
Our goal is to create a climate of mutual trust so that we can work as a team to promote a safe environment. Though our policy is one of non-punitive action when it comes to reporting incidents, accidents, and errors, this does not mean we will tolerate negligence or willful violations of policy. For us, safety is of utmost importance.
