Worker health and safety is a top priority. It is managed and controlled in accord with our corporate Health, Safety, and Accident Prevention Plan. The plan requires enrolment in a medical monitoring program and accomplishment of the minimum levels of classroom and on-the-job-training for all personnel who may be exposed to hazardous and toxic substances during job performance.
As with our Quality System, the corporate Health, Safety and Accident Prevention Plan is simple, yet effective. The corporate plan requires a project specific Health, Safety and Accident Prevention Plan for all projects requiring fieldwork, with the size and complexity tailored to the nature of the potential hazards. Emphasizing up-front planning and the selection of properly trained and experienced personnel are the keys to Abbott’s excellent health and safety record.
Abbott Oil has worked hard to create safe working environments and we are proud to have maintained an incident-free workplace since the start of operation. Health and Safety forms the core focus of any project we take up and therefore have invested in extensive training programs for our Supervisory and Managerial teams.
