Health and safety

E.H.L.  Construction cares about the health and safety of its workers, clients and partners. For this reason, the company has developed a health and safety program containing specific methods and procedures to ensure projects are carried out safely and accidents prevented

Each project that E.H.L. undertakes has its own action plan. Our specialists study the nature and requirements of each project; identifying underlying risks and determining the preventive measures that are needed to carry out the work safely. Team members receive the information and E.H.L. sees to it that it is applied through each step of the project.

Our safety slogan “Zero Accident policy” describes not only what we do, but our values and culture. Our most important asset is our people. That’s why safety is an integral part of our job.
