EGAT is committed to a creating safe, healthy, and environmentally responsible working environment, to promote and perpetuate the safety culture that permeates into the maintenance. This commitment serves to effectively (1) manage the risks of accidental damage and injury, as well as (2) sustain work productivity.
Safety, Health and Environment
EGAT defines and measures the factors that will impact personnel safety, ground safety and flight safety through indices such as work days lost to injury, injury events, and injury-free rolling work hours. These factors are monitored through pro-active participation from all personnel.
Each abnormal event is documented, and reviewed through monthly management meetings. Corrective actions are implemented.
Monthly cross-departmental "Red Teams" audit the facility on safe working environments. Each observed deficiency, and corresponding corrective action is logged, deliberated, and approved. Collectively, each person in EGAT is to adhere to the guidelines in the handbook in "EGAT's Occupational Safety, Health, and Environmental Protection – Working Principles".
The facility is subjected to bi-annual audits from EPA-approved external consultants.
Specific measurements on air, noise, and chemical pollution in the workplace are made and corrective actions are implemented to eliminate out-of-limit results.
EGAT takes on measures to (1) recycle solid wastes, (2) re-condition liquid wastes, and (3) conserve water as well as electrical resources.
Environmental Protection Through Aggressive Recycling
EGAT is committed to a sustainable future to reduce its carbon footprint through aggressive recycling efforts. The positive upward trend in recycling measures up well with EGAT's continuing recycling efforts.
