Health & Safety:
At ACG, we aim to eradicate accidents and injury on our construction sites. We believe our target of zero accidents is an achievable aspiration. However, it is a huge challenge in an industry that often involves dangerous machinery, heavy loads, working at height and above all, uneducated labor.
It is our responsibility to ensure that every person who works for ACG returns home safely at the end of the working day. Fostering a culture of care and concern for others, as well as openness and transparency, is our mission. We strive to train all employees, including our subcontractors and are proactively growing our Health & Safety team.
While ensuring the safety of our employees and those sub contractors working on our sites is our paramount concern, we also share useful developments and learning with the wider industry.
