Sustainability and safety are really about the same thing: conserving resources. In the case of sustainability, those resources are typically thought of as environmental. In the case of safety, the resources are human.
In recognition of DPC’s respect for people and in line with the safety value within its culture, DPC appointed an Environmental, Health & Safety Specialist in March 2013, a first for DPC.
This appointment enables DPC to improve and further develop their Safety Management System in line with best practice. The Safety Management System has grown and developed towards OHSAS 18001standard in recent years and DPC are in a position to obtain independent certification for OHSAS 18001 in 2016.
