The preparations for our 7 branches to go for ISO 14001 : 2004 certification is in process now.  The first training is scheduled to be conducted in the month of May 2013 at Lumut, where this standards will be introduced to the participants from all the branches.  We must understand that this ISO 14001 standard is applicable to our business activities and services, which have some impact on the environment.  It provides practical tools for the company to identify and control the environmental impact and constantly improve our environmental performance.  When all our branches achieve this ISO 14001 : 2004 certification we can assure the clients and customers that our Environmental Management System ( EMS ) meets global industry specific environmental standards.

Some key benefits of ISO 14001 : 2004 certification are :

  •  Quantify, monitor and control the impact of our operations on the environment
  • Safeguard legislative and statutory awareness and compliance
  • Protect the company’s assets and properties

Investment in Safety & Health is critical for success in business.  If companies cut their Safety allocations as a cost cutting measure it is likely that they will pay for it later.  Generally poor attitudes towards Safety & Health could cause increase of even minor injuries which cost the company money.  So, investing to reduce injuries by having a strong Safety & Health culture will kick start growth, and not stifle it.

LEOPAD Group SHE Management knows that Good Safety means Good Business.  Here are 8 reasons why :

1   1.       Happy employees   
              It is everyone’s desire to feel safe and healthy.  If employees feel  safe, healthy and   
              secure  at work, they will be happy.

      2.    Lower employee turnover 
              If they do not think the grass  is greener anywhere else, we will be paying much less to 
              replace employees who leave.  We will pay a lot less on recruitment and training too.  

      3.    Low absenteeism   
              If employees are fit and healthy, they are at work and making the contribution they are paid 

      4.   Lower pay bills    
             Eliminate the double-up costs of sick pay for absentees and overtime cover to fill the gaps.

     5.   Less repair and re-working  -  when things are done right, less injury and damage means 
            less costs for repair and re-working.

     6.   Reduces risk of fines  -  fines and associated legal costs come directly off the bottom line. 
            Limiting these costs protects company’s profits.

     7.   Reduced insurance claims  -  injury and medical claims, property damage and interruption  
            in   business cost money.  Investing money to reduce claims will save money in the long 

    8.   More satisfied client or customer  -  if our Safety & Health records are exemplary, our 
          business will have the reputation reflecting that.  Without that reputation, business will suffer 
    due to client or customer losing confidence.  

We should continue to invest in developing a  positive Safety & Health culture, and reduce costs in a sustainable manner.  The moral  reason will always be  -   a good culture means we strive to stop people getting injured.
