HSE Health Saftey and Evironment

Effective management of health, safety and environment (HSE) is an integral part of our corporate philosophy. Our goal is to create a safe and environmentally friendly working environment and to prevent occupational accidents. For this reason, we have formulated a Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) Policy to ensure that appropriate measures are taken to protect health, safety and the environment in the workplace.

It serves as a written expression of our company's commitment to ensuring the health and safety of employees and minimising environmental impacts. Our HSE policy helps us to comply with legal requirements, motivate employees, minimise risks, improve our image and achieve continuous improvements in health, safety and the environment.

We firmly believe that an active safety and environmental culture, implemented by all employees and managers, contributes to the success of our company and our partners.
