Environmental Issues

Managing Director Nico Louw insists that there should be a continual awareness of the environment in all the work the Company performs. Whilst appreciating that there will always be some environmental sacrifices in the cause of development and progress, Renico Earthworks & Civils (Pty) Ltd ensures at all times that there is as minimal an impact on the environment as possible on every site we work.

Health & Safety

The key strategic objective is the achievement of “zero harm”. We enjoy the services of a permanently contracted Health & Safety Officer, while Supervisors and management ensure that safety is not compromised in any circumstances by taking responsibility for employee safety, leading by example, encouraging positive safety behaviour and discouraging negative behaviour. Supervisors apply a policy of zero tolerance to non-compliance with safety standards.

Occupational health screening and medicals are undergone throughout the year, ensuring that employees are fit for work in their specific environment. Cases of occupational and non occupational disease are referred to external facilities. No pre-employment testing for HIV is undertaken and all HIV testing and counselling is undertaken voluntarily. Employees who are HIV positive are encouraged to participate in the wellness programmes available through various local clinics.
