Delivering The Next Hundred Years
Global megatrends—from the projected population surge to the scarcity of resources—are changing the way we design, construct, and operate critical structures and systems for our customers and the societies that ultimately benefit from them. The last century was largely defined by industrial development, because of these megatrends the next 100 years will be defined by sustainable development. We believe in not only delivering physical assets to our customers and societies, but also enabling environments that will benefit them for the long term. Whether for public safety or environmental protection, together with our stakeholders Essfero helps to modernize procedures, systems and institutions to build local capacities and generate sustainable outcomes beyond the project. We deliver this by applying Essfero’s innovation, proven processes, and global experience protecting natural resources, promoting local business opportunities, and partnering with communities. We regard sustainability as our responsibility to enhance the positive effects of our projects and to avoid or mitigate the negative ones. We believe that we are not just delivering a physical asset to our customers and communities, but also an enabling environment that will benefit them long term.
Sustainability is only strengthened by Safety and we continue to ensure the highest safety standard. We are relentless in our approach to prevent each and every accident, as we believe that every incident, thus every occupational injury, is preventable.
On the job
Every one of our colleagues—as well as our partners and subcontractors—has stop-work authority. If it's not safe, we don't do it. We reinforce this philosophy through a combination of technical field procedures, ongoing training, and a Life Critical Requirements Program that highlights activities that could be life-threatening when not executed according to published procedures.
Public safety is a critical part of our environmental, safety, and health programs, and we work with all appropriate stakeholders to improve industry and national standards. On many projects, we prepare and implement traffic safety management plans specific to the work site and to the local roads over which equipment and materials flow to support construction.
