Arcadis commits to providing a healthy and safe work environment for all employees.
In our General Business Principles, we commit to providing a healthy and safe work environment for all our employees. Health and safety is a business driver for Arcadis, and it is a fundamental part of our culture. Our global health and safety vision and policy reflect a proactive risk/behavior-based approach that integrates health, safety, and wellbeing into our culture, values, and the way we do business.
Health and safety management system
Our global Health & Safety management system creates a consistent process of Health & Safety across the company but allows for the nuances of local culture, client expectations and regulation. Our system focuses on proactive hazard recognition, and risk assessment and control to prevent accidents. Lessons learned and best practices are regularly shared globally through our formal Safety Share process and informal networking of staff. Our system empowers staff to conduct their work in such a way to protect themselves and others. It gives them the tools to always implement healthy and safe work practices and encourages them to use these tools off-the-job to maintain a healthy and safe personal life, as well.
We are continually striving for no harm to people through a zero incidents focus using the TRACK process of:
Think through the task
Recognize the hazards
Assess the risks
Control the risks
Keep health & safety first in all things
