Health Safety and Environment
As its operations have built in size over recent years, Vegas has been embedding a modern and fit for purpose HSEQ culture in all activities.Vegas employs a full time HSES Manager who reports to the Country GM. The HSES Manager has a centralized HSES department based in Egypt with each JV having an HSE function reporting in. Each location also has its own National HSE staff.
Protecting the environment forms a cornerstone of Vegas policy. The National environmental laws within Egypt form the basis of the compliance standards along with applicable best practice taken from within the industry. The environmental protection measures focus on anti-leakage and waste water treatment.
Within the safety management system, the Company has made policy commitments to continually improve performance across the HSES function.
Future plans for HSE include:
- Management system roll-out and implementation of key elements on a risk basis
- Development of further formal system processes, such as electronic reporting and tracking
- Improvements in incident reporting and investigation
- Formalisation of environmental reporting and monitoring
