2nd SHEQ Forum gears up for top notch performance

Let’s bring everyone to the same level of safety, health and environmental quality maturity. Adapt and integrate international standards. Work as a team. We are only as strong as the weakest link.  SAFETY BEGINS WITH TEAMWORK.

-Luis Miguel Aboitiz, EVP and COO, AP Corporate Business Group

 

With over 70 participants from the different AboitizPower business units, the second run of the Safety, Health, Environment and Quality (SHEQ) Forum strengthened the building blocks of the company’s formidable edifice of world-class practices. The strong support from the business units’ heads was evident in the plenary and panel discussions. Here are the key takeaways of this year’s forum:

 

Incident Reporting and Investigation

Stakeholder Engagement: Creating Buy-In at the Workplace

Biodiversity profiling project

 

SHEQ is a driving force in achieving operational excellence. It prevent accidents through sound SHEQ practices. IF YOU CAN’T MANAGE SAFETY, YOU CAN’T MANAGE.

-Manny Rubio, AP Generation Group EVP and COO

 

Milestone Achievements

Since the creation of SHEQ, the Power Group has already set up the Steering Committee and implemented the 1AP governance documents that set the requirements on SHEQ management and performance across business units. These include: performance reporting through the SHEQ dashboard, incident reporting, road transport safety management system, stop work authority, power plant entry rules, behavior based safety, modular inspection checklist, guidelines on hazardous waste classification and labeling, and guidelines on solid waste management.

It has integrated SHEQ into its performance metrics (target of 15% of performance bonus). Meanwhile, the drive for third party ISO certification is in full gear with all BUs eyeing to be IMS-certified by end 2017. The IMS certification will entails an integrated approach with ISO 9001 (Quality Management System), ISO 14001 (Environmental Management System), and OHSAS 18001 (Occupational Health and Safety Management System).
