HSSE Activities & Programs
JGC is committed to promote and sustain a high health standard corporate wide and across all its projects. In order to achieve and maintain this standard, JGC Management strives to provide a healthy and productive work environment for the work force, to protect the general public, and to promote onsite work efficiency.
To help achieve these goals, JGC implements a Health Management Plan in all of its projects. This plan and its associated documents will define requirements for the project’s health management program and will be used by JGC and its Subcontractors as a basis for understanding project health threats, developing, implementing, and maintaining health management related facilities, equipment materials, consumables, manuals, procedures and resources.
HEALTH HAZARDS AND RISKS
Based on the identified hazards, a specific "Project Health Risk Assessment" is prepared by JGC to determine the possible impact of the project on the workforce and community. Based on the Health Risk Assessment result, JGC implements an adequate health management program in all its projects. Favorably, suitable risk controls will eliminate risks, or where this cannot be achieved, reducing it to as low as reasonably practicable.
“Occupational Health” deals with the promotion and maintenance of the highest degree of physical, mental, and social well-being of workers in all occupations and the prevention of ill-health among employees caused by their working conditions.
It focuses on placing the worker in an occupational environment adapted to the worker’s physiological and psychological state and condition and adapts the work to be carried out to the worker and the worker to the job.
Occupational Health is a multidisciplinary field which, at Project Level, may include the following;
- Occupational medicine
- Industrial hygiene
- Health promotion/wellness programs
