Environment

Ferretti International views Environmental Management as a key and critical requirement in the way we do business. Our vision is summed up in our Environment Policy, our effectiveness detailed within our Environmental Management System and our commitment reflected by our performance records.

Ferretti International acknowledge that the very nature of projects undertaken, as well as the methods explored, as well as plant and equipment used, all have the potential to adversely impact the environment. Therefore, our approach to Environment Management is similar to those taken with safety management and that is to be proactive driven and not reactive. As a result to this approach, Ferretti International have an excellent environmental record and is committed to maintaining that record.

Ferretti International have an established and effective Environmental Management System but understand one size does not fit all, as such Project Environment plans shall be developed to meet client and project specific requirements. Ferretti International also take responsibility for the overall performance of any subcontractors and  the standards set by Ferretti International are the minimum standards to which we manage and control our subcontractors.

Ferretti International is committed to providing a secure, healthy, safe workplace with safe systems of work, on-going training, competent supervisors and safe plant and equipment.

To allow us to continue to comply with the requirements of our clients our Safety Management System is flexible and provides easy interaction with client safety systems and project specific requirements.

Providing the appropriate resources is a critical requirement to ensuring the Safety Management System functions effectively and efficiently. Resources include dedicated safety people, training and appropriate equipment, facilities and plant.

In accordance with legislation, Ferretti International also takes responsibility for the performance of any subcontractors we employ and the safety standards set by Ferretti International are the minimum standards to which  Ferretti International manage and control subcontractors.
