PCL is committed to minimising the impact of our operations on the environment.
Developing an environmental plan is a core procedure in our quality system and is produced before commencing any project. This approach has allowed us to successfully complete environmentally sensitive projects without incident. At the core of these plans is the basis that environmental issues must be considered in all decision making.
The methodology is based around the risk assessment associated with the tasks to be carried out. The Risk Assessment identifies all aspects of the project that could have an environmental impact and assesses the level of potential risk and impact of that activity on the environment. Management controls are then implemented to eliminate or minimise those identified impacts.
Regular inspections of sites identifies any changes in the environmental status that requires further management.
We include environmental training as part of our training policy . All staff are aware of their responsibilities in avoiding damage to the environment and are trained in the best ways of managing environmental issues.
PCL Contracting believes that Environmental Management and Quality go hand in hand and defines our commitment to be the best we can be.
