* Social development: through donations made towards community development initiatives mainly through nonprofit/non-governmental organizations for various cause related programs and disaster relief.
* Economic development: with particular emphasis on the promotion of sustainable employment for marginalized and unskilled groups such as women and the youth.
Safety, Health, Environment and Quality (SHEQ)
Pavement Materials Group, being a construction and engineering company involved in continuous high risk activities, aspires to zero harm towards its employees, sub-contractors, visitors, direct communities and the environment. We further acknowledge the legal and moral obligations towards the safe guarding of each by actively demonstrating our commitment through active leadership whilst not compromising our standards of conduct when operating in countries with lower requirements. With the Group operating in countries with differing governance standards and cultures, a reputable zero harm health and safety framework developed and implemented provides guidance to our operations on delivering our health and safety commitment throughout. Our effective “Stop for Safety” programme continues to drive the desired behaviour towards personal safety. Our well documented management system outlines how to manage these risks effectively within the stages of the project management lifecycle thereby reducing risk as far as reasonably practical. Increasing and removing communication barriers remains of critical importance for achieving and maintaining “Zero Harm”.
Regulatory and Compliance
Pavement Materials Group prides itself in pro-active compliance management. All legislation is continuously identified and assessed for applicability to the Pavement Materials Group business model, in all jurisdictions where we have a business footprint. Pieces of deemed applicable legislation are assessed and risk rated. Where required controls are implemented, in order to mitigate exposing the group to fines, penalties and other criminal sanction. With the implementation of the group’s revised compliance methodology management is now able to evaluate the group’s compliance performance in more detail, identified deficiencies and implement remedial action efficiently and effectively.
