Health, Safety & Environment

Successfully managing HSE issues is an essential component of our business strategy. Through observance and encouragement of our HSE Policy and Program, we assist in protecting the environment and the overall well-being of all of our stakeholders, specifically, our employees, clients, subcontractors, and host communities. Our goal is to minimize impact to the environment and to prevent harm to all who could be affected by our operations.

We are committed to reducing waste, emissions, and discharges in all areas where we work and by using energy efficiently, we strive to be good citizens in every community in which we operate. Cakasa will maintain awareness of HSE issues, so as to be proactive in providing a value-added service to our clients. This awareness is achieved through education, communication, and definition of the goals and standards appropriate to our operations and those undertaken on behalf of our clients. In this regard, we will adhere to our principles which are the cornerstone of Cakasa’s health, safety and environment culture and address issues such as accountability, training, communication, resources, engineering design, performance measurement, and sustainable development. Cakasa has established and is committed to a Zero Incidents goal.

Office Security

Cakasa’s standard office security measures form the basis of any project’s office security plan. One of such security measures includes the installation of additional card readers to limit access to the project area to only project personnel. Additionally, access is limited to certain locked files (key control) and access to project files on the fileserver is also limited to the required project personnel. This is to ensure that only authorized persons have access to project / client information while unwanted client documents are shredded via shredders available in the office.
