Health, Safety & Environment

ABC Sanitation is steadfast in its commitment to excellence in Safety, Health and Environmental performance.

We take a serious approach towards the health & safety of our employees and those who may be affected
by their works. Our Health and Safety department ensure the operations of the
company are carried out with best practices, drawing on extensive
industry experience and up-to-date training.

Training

We recognize the importance our employees play in maintaining a safe working environment therefore;

  • Staff and subcontractors are given necessary HSE induction and provided with appropriate training and PPE.
  • Suitable arrangements are in place to cover employees engaged in work remote from the main company site.
  • All staff will undergo continuous professional development in HSE training throughout the duration of their employment.

Risk Assessments

We perform risk assessments to ensure a safe process of works. This ensures all our employees and clients understand exactly what hazards are related to planned works and what procedures/equipment will need to be deployed in order to manage such risk. All our operatives are trained not only to follow these instructions, but also spot and correct any potential hazards that may arise whilst on site using dynamic risk assessment tools.

Compliance

We ensure legislative compliance and minimize the environmental impact of waste streams based on the local environmental laws in Nigeria, and the 19th edition of the United Nations recommendations on the transport and handling of dangerous goods.

Our planet gains inhabitants numbering to 77 million people a year.

It is estimated that each year we generate 3% more waste than the previous year.

When you throw plastic bags and other plastic materials in the ocean, it kills as many as 1 million sea creatures annually.

Glass bottles are the worst thing to throw in a landfill as it is estimated they will take 1 million years to decompose.

It’s not just what goes in the bin that counts as waste – water can be wasted, too. A single leaky tap in your house can waste as much as 5,000 litres of water a year.
