Sustainability  Sustainability Practices

The Group’s employees are exposed to sector related risks at our estates and mills, be it exposure to sharp tools, hazardous chemicals, heavy machineries and commuting hazards in the estate involving tractor and motorcycle.

As the safety and health of our employees is important to our sustainability purpose and to the sustained growth of the Group, we have established guidelines and SOP pertaining to OSH which is guided by the Group Safety and Health Policy.

The policy safeguards our employees through the prevention of work-related illnesses as well as workplace accidents. At the same time, the aim is to establish a conducive, safe and healthy workplace environment that will boost productivity. We also encourage our employees to lead a healthy lifestyle by participating in outdoor activities and sports. In addition, it is important that our employees comply with higher standard of OSH guidelines.

The Group consistently performs reviews and assessments on incident trends and safety standards to reduce the risk of injury on a regular basis and to ensure we keep abreast with industry best practices.

We respect the diversity of our employees and are committed to cultivating a workplace environment that empowers our employees to realise their full potential.

At the same time, we respect the rights of every employee including our migrant workers and are focused on ensuring that our employees are not impacted by all forms of discrimination and harassment.
