Occupational Health and Safety Management System
NomeX believes that NO JOB OR TASK IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE WORKER´s HEALTH AND SAFETY. NomeX is responsible and committed to conduct its business, be it on our sites, client sites or any other establishments, in such a way which ensures, so far as reasonably practicable the health, safety and welfare of all its employees, visitors and all those who may be affected by the Company´s activities in compliance to local, state and international relevant statutory provisions to ensure that Our statutory duties are met at all times. We have developed a comprehensive safety program that addresses our specific safety concerns and provides guidance for the performance of our individual jobs or tasks within the framework of appropriate Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) standards. We seek to achieve three key objectives:
- Complying with statutory requirements, codes, standards and guidelines
- Setting up objectives and targets with the aim of eliminating work related incidents in relations to our activities, products and services and
- Continuously improve our Occupational Health and Safety performance, support our own employees by means of training, aiming at their professional advancement and awareness of individual obligations in the Occupational Health and Safety field.
To help us achieve our goals, we integrate NomeX employees into each business unit, where they actively participate in the overall operating success of the organization.
Strategies which include:
- Complying with all applicable OSHA standards, government laws and legal requirements.

NomeX is fully committed to protecting and preserving the environment with strict compliance to all applicable laws and industry recommended codes of good practices. NomeX´s Environmental and Sustainable Development (E/SD) Policy and the associated Strategy represents a commitment by the Company to conduct its business in such a way that it actively promotes environmental responsibility and sustainable development into the operational and planning processes of the Company.
We recognize that our business encompasses many internal and external stakeholders both locally and globally, and a wide variety of diverse activities and support services which collectively result in a significant ‘environmental footprint’.
NomeX E/SD Strategy seeks to ensure that the Company’s continued growth and development is managed in a sustainable manner, having due regard to the environmental, economic and social impacts. The Strategy addresses a range of issues such as the built environment? The consumption of energy and natural resources? Generation of waste and responsible disposal regimes? And sustainable travel plans for staff and Employees.
In a highly competitive environment, the achievement of sustainable development is a tough challenge and one which will only be achieved through the active engagement of all members of the community. We all have an individual responsibility to ensure that we do not compromise the ability of future generations to provide for themselves, and as such, we all have a contribution to make.We believe that all environmental incidents can be prevented by using the right control tools that achieve our set environmental objectives.
Our aim is to be recognized by our environmental excellence among Man power supply service contractors and to achieve our environmental goals by performing safe operations and supply services with NO ENVIRONMENTAL INCIDENTS in an environmentally friendly manner.
Safety is NomeX´s first priority. We are committed to provide the necessary funds and scheduling time to ensure effective safety and health training is provided. Training is one of the most important components within our company’s Health and Safety management system. Over the years, both management and employees have been involved in developing the program. It has given NomeX employees an opportunity to learn their jobs properly, bringing new ideas into the workplace, reinforcing existing ideas and practices, and has helped us to put our Health and Safety Program into action. We are proud to say everyone in our company has benefited from safety and health training through fewer workplace injuries and illnesses, reduced stress and higher morale. Evidently productivity, profits, and competitiveness has increased as production costs per unit, turnover, and workers compensation rates have lowered.
Our objective is that by 2020 all NomeX operations will have an excellent health, safety and security culture embedded in their day-to-day business, targeting zero incidents.
Training and Accountability
For the execution of safe operations and best-on-the job performance, we believe that training without accountability is ineffective. Our safety culture must support training hence for us, a culture of consequences is essential. To help make sure our efforts in health and safety are effective we have developed methods to measure performance and administer consequences. Our Supervisors and managers have a strong knowledge of understanding that their first responsibility is to make sure they have met their obligations to their employees before considering disciplinary action.
Our safety responsibilities are being measured similarly to job requirements. We have established a system which holds managers, supervisors, and employees accountable for the safety activities they are required to perform.
A greater portion of the company´s performance reviews is dedicated to safety based on objective measurements and subjective feedback. Managers and safety staff are being educated annually on the elements (processes) within the safety accountability system which is being continually evaluated by an established safety committee.
