Horizonte operates a comprehensive health and safety programme to ensure the wellness and security of its employees. The control and eventual elimination of all work related hazards requires dedicated team effort involving the active participation of all employees. The programme is the primary means for delivering best practices in health and safety management. This programme is regularly updated to incorporate employee feedback, lessons learned from past incidents and new guidelines related to new projects. Through this we aim to identify areas for further improvement of health and safety management, resulting in a highly effective programme. Employee involvement is recognised as fundamental in identifying and reporting unsafe conditions and avoiding events that may result in injuries and accidents.
Policies and Procedures
The Company operates under 6 golden rules aimed at mitigating the majority of health & safety risks. Annually Horizonte management provides a detailed in house review of the Company’s health and safety programme hand in hand with all members of the Brazil exploration team. In addition Brazil exploration personnel attend accredited independent courses in first-aid, risk assessment, fire combat and defensive driving.
