Health & safety and environmental affairs plays a vital role in Probe Corporation’s daily operations and is one of our highest priorities. In our commitment to upholding this, Probe Corporation has developed and implemented an Integrated Management System framework incorporating the most recent international standards that allows our organisation to document and improve our practices in order to better satisfy the needs and expectations of our customers, stakeholders and interested parties.
This includes the ISO 9001:2015 which is the quality management system standard that specifies requirements for organisations that must be able to demonstrate the ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements. Furthermore it provides a framework to enhance customer satisfaction through the effective application of the system and the assurance of conformity to customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.
The recent ISO 45001:2018 standard specifies requirements for an occupational health and safety (OH&S) management system, and gives guidance for its use, to enable organisations to provide safe and healthy workplaces by preventing work-related injury and ill health, as well as by proactively improving its OH&S performance.
At Probe, we believe that a successful OH&S programme should embody the correct attitudes toward incident, injury and illness prevention. In turn, these attitudes should be embedded in all employees, from departmental heads, managers and supervisors through to employees and their interactions with co-workers. It is only through a cooperative effort such as this that the health & safety programme is most effective and sustainable.
A shared responsibility begins with management, who commit to providing a safe working environment for staff along with the necessary processes and procedures to enhance this. In turn, our employees commit to performing work responsibly and in accordance with our safe standards and practices.
Probe Corporation is resolute in the ongoing development and improvement of our OH&S programme with a focus on the reduction of incidents and injury for all employees and other persons. In doing so we observe, implement and fulfil the requirements under the OHS Act 85 of 1993, relevant OHS Regulations and other health & safety requirements to which the company commits itself to.
Thus we are confident that our programme, which reflects best practice in our industry, will keep Probe contractors, vendors, employees and the environment, safe and sound.
